A Conversation with Eugene Peterson - 2007

4/16/2007; 29 minutes

Author, poet, pastor and professor Eugene Peterson charms his audience as he recalls his effort to translate the Bible into The Message, an interpretation geared for modern readers. The book has such wide appeal that U2's Bono began quoting from it at concerts. But when told of this, Peterson's response was "Who is Bono?" Peterson is joined host Dean Nelson in Part 2 of the 2007 Writers Symposium by the Sea, sponsored by Point Loma Nazarene University. (#12227)
