Eugene Peterson

Best known for The Message transliteration of the Bible, Eugene Peterson is a “shepherd’s shepherd”—a pastoral writer who aims to keep Christian leaders grounded in robust biblical theology amid the din of shallow preaching aimed at self-improvement and megachurch marketing campaigns to “do more.” The founding pastor of Christ Our King Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, Peterson is “retired” but continues to shepherd through his spiritual theology writing, notably his recent memoir, The Pastor, and over 30 other books.
