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 to be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
"Real Life Bible"
“If anyone knows how to be a pastor in the contemporary context that person is Eugene Peterson. Eugene possesses the rare combination of a pastor’s heart and a pastor’s art. Take and read!” (Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline) “I’ve been nagging Eugene Peterson for years to write a memoir. In our clamorous, celebrity-driven, entertainment culture, his life and words convey a quiet whisper of sanity, authenticity, and, yes, holiness.” (Philip Yancey, author of What Good is God)

"Must listen to this book again"

The biblical passages in these studies offer encouragement to continue in the path Christ has set forth for us.

In these pages he draws readers into a fascinating conversation on the nature of language, the ancient practice of lectio divina, and the role of Scripture translations.
"Great book dreadful narrator."

The Message: REMIX is read by artists whose lives have been impacted by The Message.
"Listen to the LORD daily"
Eugene H. Peterson considers all the ways that Jesus is the Way compared to the distorted ways the modern American church has chosen to follow. Arguing that the way Jesus leads and the way we follow are symbiotic, Peterson begins with an extensive study of how the ways of those who came before Christ - Abraham, Moses, David, Elijah, Isaiah of Jerusalem, and Isaiah of the Exile - revealed and prepared the "way of the Lord" that became complete in Jesus.
Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places reunites spirituality and theology in a cultural context where these two vital facets of Christian faith have been rent asunder. Lamenting the vacuous, often pagan nature of contemporary American spirituality, Eugene Peterson here firmly grounds spirituality once more in Trinitarian theology and offers a clear, practical statement of what it means to actually live out the Christian life.
This audio puts the life-changing power of the Bible , the vibrant emotions of the Psalms, and the rich practical wisdom of Proverbs into the same easy-to-listen terminology people today use to talk to friends.

"An Interesting Perspective"
Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, but find a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because it is from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Unlike other audio Bibles, The Message was fashioned by Eugene Peterson to be read aloud, not as a study Bible.
"A real blessing!"
It's Christmas Eve and Andrew is upset. His father won't let him open his gifts early. So Andrew and his little sister, Lindsay, run away to the woods. As they venture deeper into the forest, Andrew and Lindsay hear a thundering, gravelly voice, "Who's s-s-s-sitting on my b-b-b-belly?" It was a troll with orange spiky hair!
Finding hope is a matter of seeing, of looking in the right direction. Hope means having the right perspective, point of view. We lose hope when our focus is fuzzy or we look in the wrong direction. Only God has the perfect perspective on every event, every circumstance. Our perspective will always be limited by the very fact that we are finite. But we can make choices on where we look that can give us a more accurate picture and bring hope.
