829541: Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers Tell It Slant: A Conversation on the Language of Jesus in His Stories and Prayers
By Eugene H. Peterson
*** $1.99 ***

2009 Christianity Today Book Award of Merit in Spirituality

Just 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!”

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.

Part 1 focuses on Jesus’ words in everyday contexts—his teachings to the crowds, the stories he told, his conversations with his disciples. Part 2 shifts the focus to Jesus’ prayers—the words he spoke to God the Father.

Peterson’s Tell It Slant promises to deepen our understanding of Jesus’ words, strengthen our awareness of language as a gift of God, and nurture our efforts to make all of our speech convey a blessing to others.

“Language—given to us to glorify God, to receive the revelation of God, to witness to the truth of God, to offer praise to God—is constantly at risk. Too often the living word is desiccated into propositional cadavers, then sorted into exegetical specimens in bottles of formaldehyde. We end up with godtalk. . . . My concern is that we use God’s gift of language in consonance with the God who speaks. Jesus is the primary person with whom we have to do in this business. Jesus most of all. Jesus, the Word made flesh. . . . I want to nurture an awareness of the sanctity of words, the holy gift of language whether it is directed vertically or horizontally. Just as Jesus did.”- from the introduction

292463: The Dude Abides
The Dude Abides
By Cathleen Falsani

*** 99c ***

Whether you’ve seen all 14 of their movies or only a few, you know that Joel and Ethan Cohen are some of the best filmmakers in the industry. Cathleen Falsani explores the deeper truths in each of the Coen brothers’ films in The Dude Abides, and shows that there is truly no facet of human behavior the Coen brothers are afraid to tackle. Ranging from iconoclastic comedies such as Raising Arizona and The Big Lebowski to the unblinking treatise on the nature of evil in No Country for Old Men, the Coen brothers have created moral universes in which some of life’s most essential questions are asked-if not always answered. Ultimately, Falsani brings the reader into a new admiration for these bizarre, always clever, and unmistakably though-provoking filmmakers and the social commentary the bring to big screen.
 
 

074723: Hear No Evil: My Story of Innocence, Music, and Holy GhostHear No Evil: My Story of Innocence, Music, and Holy Ghost
By Matthew Paul Turner

*** 99c ***

A quirky, provocative, hilarious collection from master storyteller Matthew Paul Turner! Exploring moments where spiritual life intersects with music, Turner shares events that forced him out of his comfort zone and opened up new graces along the way. You’ll laugh at how Sandi Patty saved him from insanity, his uncomfortable role as his church’s “teen soloist,” and his early dream of becoming the Michael Jackson of Christian music. Don’t miss Turner’s witty and insightful memoir of growing up as a faithful evangelical youth!

Like most of us, Lauren Winner wants something to believe in. The child of a reform Jewish father and a lapsed Southern Baptist mother, she chose to become an Orthodox Jew. But as she faithfully observes the Sabbath rituals and studies Jewish laws, she finds herself increasingly drawn to Christianity. Taking a courageous step, she leaves behind what she loves and converts. Now the even harder part: How does one reinvent a religious self? How does one embrace the new without abandoning the old? How does a convert become spiritually whole.
