A Fascinating Biography I’m Reading – A Burning in my Bones
Eugene Peterson is most well known for his paraphrase of the Bible, The Message. My upbringing caused me to hold The Message at a distance for the early years of my Christian walk. Now, however, I have a fuller appreciation of Peterson as a pastor who had a desire to help his congregation not just know scripture with their heads but to experience and walk in it with their whole lives.
A Burning in my Bones is the authorized biography of this renowned pastor, teacher, and Bible translator. It is fascinating to read how God molded and shaped Eugene’s life.
“This hunger for something radical—something so true that it burned in his bones—was a constant in Eugene’s life. His longing for God ignited a ferocity in his soul.”
Encounter the multifaceted life of one of the most influential and creative pastors of the past half century with unforgettable stories of Eugene’s lifelong devotion to his craft and love of language, the influences and experiences that shaped his unquenchable faith, the inspiration for his decision to translate The Message, and his success and struggles as a pastor, husband, and father.
Author Winn Collier was given exclusive access to Eugene and his materials for the production of this landmark work. Drawing from his friendship and expansive view of Peterson’s life, Collier offers an intimate, beautiful, and earthy look into a remarkable life.
For Eugene, the gifts of life were inexhaustible: the glint of fading light over the lake, a kiss from Jan, a good joke, a bowl of butter pecan ice cream. As you enter into his story, you’ll find yourself doing the same—noticing how the most ordinary things shimmer with a new and unexpected beauty.

A Quote from I’m Thinking About
