At the 1604 Hampton Court Conference, James I, the first king of both England and Scotland, was persuaded that a new Bible translation was needed and ordered work to begin. Little did he know that this new Bible’s influence would be felt around the world.

To celebrate the KJV’s 400th anniversary and the tenth anniversary of The Message, this parallel Bible presents the book of Proverbs in both versions.

Meet the Author

EUGENE H. PETERSON is a writer, poet, and retired pastor. He has authored more than thirty-four books (not including The Message). He is Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. Eugene also founded Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, where he ministered for twenty-nine years. After teaching at a seminary, he created The Message, a vibrant Bible paraphrase that connects with today's readers like no other.

It took Peterson ten years to complete. He worked not from any English text but from the original Hebrew and Greek texts to guarantee authenticity. At the same time, his ear was always tuned to the cadence and energy of the English spoken every day on the streets. He lives with his wife, Jan, in Montana.

    A beautiful gift book!

    Parallel displays of the traditional language of the King James Version with Eugene Peterson's contemporary interpretation make this small book a gem for discussion of Proverbs. It's also a beautiful edition that would make a great gift for someone who loves the language of scripture.
