The Message is a reading Bible translated from the original Greek and Hebrew scriptures by scholar, pastor, author and poet Eugene Peterson. He spent 10 years working on The Message after teaching in seminary and preaching in churches for more than thirty years. It combines the authority of the Word of God with the cadence and energy of American English and has been thoroughly checked and approved by twenty biblical scholars.
It is not intended to replace study Bibles; instead its purpose is to bring God’s Word to those who don’t understand the Bible or have lost interest in learning what it has to say. It brings familiar passages of the Bible to life.
