Rev. Eugene Peterson

The Rev. Eugene Peterson, a Presbyterian minister, biblical scholar and author whose writings have shaped the thinking of pastors and church people and whose colloquial translation of the Bible, “The Message,” has sold millions of copies, died Oct. 22 at his home in Lakeside, Mont. He was 85. We are very sad to hear of his passing, but we are grateful for his contribution to the Kingdom of God.

An 18 minute documentary was recently produced by Award Winning/Multi-Nominated Documentary & Music Video Director, Greg Fromholz from Ireland. The film received several nominations from the Great Lakes Christian Film Festival. The film is entitled Peterson: In Between The Man and The Message

But after months of reviewing and narrowing down to the 30 hours allotted, these films were selected and nominated in several categories, including Best Feature and Best Actor.
