RIP Eugene Peterson

Recommended Posts

I thought I would pass this along.  Eugene Peterson, author of "The Message," passed away Monday, October 22nd.  As many U2 fans know, Bono has drawn much inspiration from Peterson's modern-day interpretation of Scripture, often quoting it during live performances and basing different lyrics from its themes.  I live in Montana, in Peterson's home town in fact, and was amazed when Bono visited Peterson a few years ago before U2 kicked of the IE tour in Vancouver.  Check out the link to the article about Peterson's death, as well as the video of he and Bono's conversation about the Psalms.  RIP Eugene.
