Tell It Slant explores how Jesus used language -- he was earthy, not abstract; metaphorical, not dogmatic. His was not a direct language of information or instruction but an indirect, oblique language requiring a participating imagination -- “slant” language. In order to witness and teach accurately in Jesus' name, then, it is important for us to use language the way he did.
This helpful study guide is designed to enable small groups in schools or churches -- or even individuals -- to delve deeper into the timely wisdom of Tell It Slant. Peterson's discussion is broken up here into twenty "sessions," each of which contains a summary, select quotes for consideration, questions for interaction, and a prayer.
