For more than 35 years, beloved author, professor, and pastor Eugene Peterson has used his expertise in the original language of the Bible and his passion for God's word to re-create the informal, earthy immediacy of Scripture in expressive, contemporary English. Just as the writers of the New Testament used everyday language to convey God's message to their readers and listeners, Peterson's conversational translations and graceful insights into Christian life speak powerfully to the concerns of today's men and women and offer timeless wisdom for every day of the year.
“. . . Living the Message sets before us much of [Peterson’s] piercing wisdom, for our own very great benefit.”
-J.I. Packer, author of Knowing God
“[A] year of days of divine companionship. No voice is wiser nor so deeply convincing.”
-Walter Wangerin, Jr., author of Saint Julian
