God Draws Us Into THEMESSAGE

In memory of Eugene Peterson, a guide as well as a fellow traveler.

Eugene Peterson lived the joy of the Christian life. Intent on sharing it with others, he found himself translating the Bible for his congregation. A scholar of the Greek and Hebrew languages, Peterson worked to get the ancient text in their language while being true to the Bible's original languages. Peterson never tired of sharing the invitation that is God’s Word.
