Eugene Peterson’s ‘The Message’ Is A New Age Perversion Of The Bible. A casual study of the New Age religion quickly exposes their light-god. A best selling New Age book of the 90’s was Embraced by the Light by Betty Eadie. The Message has sold over 10 million copies. The list of prominent people in the Christian world who endorse this evil work is beyond belief. Light is the cornerstone of NAM. The popular new age prayer called The Great Invocation by Alice Bailey, (originally published by Lucifer Publishing), begins with the words, From the point of Light within the Mind of God Let Light stream forth into the minds of men. Let Light descend on Earth.

For a culture so awash in fantasies of freedom, we are conspicuously lacking in the experience of freedom. In "Traveling Light," Eugene H. Peterson, who is translator of "The Message Bible," explores the free life in Christ that we must both receive as a gift and practice as a skill. In an engaging, often passionate dialogue in which Paul's letter to the Galatians faces off against the crises of modern life, he offers both encouragement and challenge to men and women trapped in the anxieties and determinism of our age. Eugene H. Peterson was pastor of Christ Our King United Presbyterian Church in Bel Air, Maryland, for nearly three decades, then served as professor of spirituality theology at Regent College, Vancouver, BC. Dr. Peterson is translator of "The Message" and author of numerous other works, among them "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction" and "Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places." "Like a skilled eye doctor, Eugene Peterson turns the lens that clears our vision and enables us to discriminate between reality and fantasy, to see what satisfies and what leads to bondage." -- Rebecca Pippert

I'd start by saying, for most of my adult life, Eugene Peterson has been a guiding light and a model of faithful Bible interpretation and faithful living. That said, I've been disappointed in Traveling Light on a couple of broad fronts especially related to its appeal to young people.

First, it's wordy. He seems to say in multiple paragraphs what he could have said as well in one well-constructed paragraph. This seems like one article or one short sermon series, expanded into a book.

Second, it seems uncomfortable with much nuance in the relationship between freedom and church structure/process. While it's certainly true that church structure and process CAN be stifling and were used in an attempt to stifle Paul, Dr. Peterson's narrative doesn't acknowledge that not every newcomer to a church has Paul's mandate and maturity and that the early church defined roles and processes as a way of "discerning and discipling".True, structure should not dominate or be used to stifle Spirit-inspired innovation, but it has important uses and, even with young people, it has an appeal. It's interesting, for example, the movement of young people toward the Anglican or Catholic or Orthodox churches which are on the high end of the structure/tradition continuum and the increased use of liturgy in churches with non-liturgical traditions.

Finally, for young people it may be a true solution to a problem they don't acknowledge. A central thrust of the book, while absolutely true, seems to be in need of re-framing with young adults. Although the message of freedom from sin through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ speaks to me and people of my generation, that message may be less persuasive to younger people who have grown up with LOTS of freedom and too many choices and a limited sense of moral constraint. As Paul did on Mars Hill, writers wanting to reach young people may benefit from beginning with acknowledging what they believe or need, which for this group may benefit from a focus on Christianity as the source a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as an all-wise and caring mentor who leads you into all truth, including the truth of the need for salvation from sin.

Again, I'm grateful to Eugene Peterson for his writings and insights across the years, and I understand that this book was not intended solely for young people, but, IMHO, is not one of his best books.

Eugene Peterson opens up the meaning of Galatians for me. His writing style makes the content easily understood and engages the reader in deeper contemplation of the book.

Brings new insights into the meaning of Paul's letter. Not your traditional views!

The early transcript for his now world-famous paraphrase...plus reflections. Outstanding.
Clonanau
Clear, concise, and very motivating with many stories of how lives are changed. Peterson is a master writer with the ability to mix the "good news" of the New Testament with contemporary living.
Raniconne
Very well written book..something to read and reread.

Excellent book! My Bible class has been using it as a guide.
An excellent reflection on Paul's letter by a masterful and creative commentator - great for use as a group Bible study resource
