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.

I have 5 Bible in which I cross reference with each other when I need a deeper understanding.  This is great as an additional source but I honestly would say not to be your only source.  I use this one when my other translations are too "advanced" for me.  It will be great for a newbie to start with!!

A wonderful way to relax and read the bible in everyday conversational English. Second language learners can read the bible and understand it. It is a great way to minister to others for it allows all readers to find the bible accessible. Highly recommend.

This is a great bible that is easy to understand. I have started to reading the bible, and unlike many others, I can understand it and enjoy The Word of God. The cover feels very cool and is washable and the pages are very thin. There is a piece of pink silk that is attached to the book that is a very helpful bookmark. In the back there is: the Atopical Guide for Students, maps,and Books of the Old and New Testament organized in the general order of events. This is a great bible to get if you are wanting to read the bible and get a good grasping of it, then get this one. I got this at a Christian book store rather than Barnes and Noble, but this price is cheaper by only s few dollars. This is a must have in any Christian Home.

My teenager daughter loved this. It is a contemporary interpretation that teenagers understand and the packaging is cool.

This is a great version of the Bible that is easy to read and understand. I suggest it to anyone who says they have trouble understanding what they are reading.
