Words of Jesus
What if you could encounter the words of Jesus on their own, lifted from the surrounding narratives and presented in their full power and mystery? That's the question Phyllis Tickle asked when she set out to write what she calls a ''sayings gospel'' In The Words of Jesus Tickle has compiled and arranged all the sayings of Jesus from the first four books of the New Testament and the first chapter of Acts in a way that offers an entirely new experience of the texts. And she has accompanied those sayings with her own personal reflections and commentaries, not just on the words themselves but on the One who spoke them.
