About the Author


Eugene Peterson

Eugene Peterson

EUGENE H. PETERSON (1932-2018) was a pastor, scholar, writer, and poet. In 1963, Eugene founded Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, where he was the pastor for twenty-nine years. Following that, he was James M. Houston Professor of Spiritual Theology at Regent College in Vancouver, B.C., Canada from 1993 to 1998, and continued there as emeritus professor until 2006. He spent ten years working on The Message--a paraphrase of the Bible--translating it from the original Greek and Hebrew. He authored more than twenty books, including A Long Obedience in the Same Direction, The Contemplative Pastor, and Leap Over a Wall. Eugene died on October 22, 2018 in Montana at the age of 85. He and his wife, Jan, had three children and nine grandchildren.

About the Author


The Message - A Paraphrase

The Message - A Paraphrase

Reader Level: Grade 5-10 (Depending on the Passage)
Sample Verse: John 3:16-17 16-18 “This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again. Anyone who trusts in him is acquitted; anyone who refuses to trust him has long since been under the death sentence without knowing it. And why? Because of that person’s failure to believe in the one-of-a-kind Son of God when introduced to him."

Translation Summary: A paraphrase re-articulating the message of the Bible in contemporary idioms.

About Translation: The Message uses informal modern English to help contemporary Bible readers feel the vitality and directness with which God’s word originally communicated. Published in 1993, updated in 2002.
