Eugene H. Peterson is a pastor, scholar, writer, and poet. After teaching at a seminary and then giving nearly thirty years to church ministry in the Baltimore ares, he created The Message: a vibrant Bible paraphrase that connects with todays readers like no other. It took Peterson a full ten years to complete. He worked from the original Greek and Hebrew texts to guarantee authenticity. At the same time, his ear was always tuned to the cadence and energy of contemporary English.
Petersons work has been thoroughly reviewed by a team of recognized Old and New Testament scholars, who ensured that it is accurate as well as faithful to the original language.
