From the Heart of a Pastor
Eugene H. Peterson is a pastor, scholar, writer, and poet. After pastoring for thirty years, Peterson spent ten more creating The Message - a Bible brimming with the life God has for today's readers. Transforming the ancient languages into modern English, Eugene's mission remained clear: help his congregation enjoy the Bible and draw people closer to their creator and redeemer.

'Seems like forever since I've picked up a Bible that made the stories so fresh and new. My name is on that long list of folks who love to read The Message. What a friend this Bible has become.'

About the Author
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.
