A quote from the SLANT of Peterson

Eugene Peterson has been one of my favorite authors for years…this new series of Spiritual Theology books he’s been writing are MORE than outstanding…they are necessary reading for anyone with a passion for Jesus and His Kingdom.  Start with Christ Plays in 10,000 Places and go from there…

This quote is one that I read last night from his latest: Tell it Slant.  It is a book of exploring spiritual theology in the context of the parables and prayers of Jesus (in the Lukan tradition).  Definitely worth the journey!

"Nothing is more rudely dismissive of Jesus than to treat him as a Sunday School teacher who shows up on Sundays to teach us about God and how to stay out of trouble". (p. 135)
