Product Description & Reviews

The fourth volume in Peterson's best-selling "conversations" in spiritual theologyJust as God used words both to create the world and to give us commandments, we too use words for many different purposes. In fact, we use the same language to talk to each other and to talk to God. Can our everyday speech, then, be just as important as the words and prayers we hear from the pulpit? Eugene Peterson unequivocally says "Yes!"Peterson's Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language, particularly in his parables and prayers. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination — "slant" language. Tell It Slant beautifully points to Jesus' engaging, relational way of speaking as a model for us today.

The Shadow of the Galilean: The Quest of the Historical Jesus in Narrative Form
By Fortress Press
mpn: 9780800639006, ean: 9780800639006, isbn: 0800639006,
First published in 1987 by Fortress Press, this 20th anniversary edition of this classic bestseller includes a new Afterword from the author. Here, in narrative form, is an account of the activity of Jesus of Nazareth, scrupulously constructed so that it does not undercut the insights of New Testament scholarship. What makes it different from other such attempts is that Jesus never actually appears. What we find everywhere is his shadow, his effect. Such an approach avoids the usual pitfalls of

By Univ of Notre Dame Pr
ean: 9780268033590, isbn: 0268033595,
Written in the context of a decades-long struggle between progressive theologians and the magisterium–a struggle symptomatic of the current and wider crisis in the Roman Catholic Church–The Language of Dissent uses the theology of Edward Schillebeeckx as it has evolved and developed to analyze fundamental questions of authority and dissent in the church. Daniel Speed Thompson’s approach to the issue of authority is unique in that he reflects not only on the character of the church but

By Peeters
ean: 9789068317091, isbn: 9068317091,
Born in Qatar in the early seventh century AD, Isaac of Niniveh (also known as Isaac the Syrian) was the author of a number of very fine writings on the spiritual life which have proved very influential, especially in monastic circles, over the centuries. The first part of his writings was translated into Greek in the ninth century at the monastery of St Saba in Palestine, and thence it found its way into many other languages (including in the twentieth century, Japanese). In 1983 a complete
