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.

    Highly recommend

    I love everything about this version of the Bible! The large print and format make it visually pleasant to the eye and easy to read. Eugene Peterson spent 10 years and consulted with over 20 Old and New Testament scholars in his effort to translate the Bible from the original Hebrew and Greek into very understandable, yet accurate, up-to-date English. Each section (i.e. Books of Moses, Histories, Prophets, etc) of the Bible as well as each individual Book is preceded by an Introduction. This helps to give an overview of what they're about as well as set the stage for what is happening at that particular time. I believe Peterson's goal was to have a Bible that people could easily read all the way through in order to just listen to what a God has to say to us. I have been a Christian for over 50 years, and have read and studied many parts of the Bible, but have never read any version of the whole Bible. I've always found it too difficult to just sit down and systematically read it all. I am now well on my way to not only reading The Message from beginning to end, but thoroughly enjoying it!
