What if you could encounter the words of Jesus on their own, lifted up from the surrounding narratives and presented in their full power and mystery? That’s the question Phyllis Tickle—one of America’s most beloved writers on Christian spirituality—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 the Book of Acts in a way that creates an entirely new kind of encounter with 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.

Praise for The Words of Jesus "Harsh. Testy. Uncompromising. These aren't words typically associated with Jesus, but Christian scholar Phyllis Tickle, a former religion editor of Publishers Weekly, says they often came to mind as she wrote her new book, The Words of Jesus. . . . Jesus was anxious to be understood. He asked Philip, an apostle, 'Have I been so long a time among you ...and still you do not know me?' It's a question that Tickle's book helps us answer today." —Newsweek "Thoughtful reflection. . . . Highly recommended." —Library Journal "These sayings of Jesus will be a valuable tool to Christians looking for new ways to study and assimilate His core teachings and character." —Publishers Weekly "I daily give thanks to God for Phyllis Tickle, whose words have long been an icon through which I have seen glimpses of divine life. I can think of no one I would rather have guide me into the words of Jesus." —Lauren F. Winner, Duke Divinity School; author, Girl Meets God "I'm wary of any attempt to abstract the words of Jesus from their context in the distinctive particulars of the four gospels. But Phyllis Tickle's The Words of Jesus is worth the price of admission, and more: she's given us one of the richest engagements with Scripture I've encountered in a long while." —John Wilson, editor, Books & Culture, Christianity Today
