The Invitation features Eugene’s thoughtful introductions from The Message.

Readers will encounter a profound overview of the Bible that invites them to delve deeper into God’s Word.
That’s how millions of readers have responded to The Message, Eugene H. Peterson’s best-selling contemporary translation of the Bible–and to Peterson’s accompanying personal insights into God’s Word.
In fact, many readers requested that those insights–Peterson’s heart-to-heart introductions to each biblical book of The Message–be gathered together into a concise, easy-reading overview of the Bible.
The result is The Invitation, a simple guide to the Bible written not for the scholar (though scholars have asked for it) but for today’s Everyman and Everywoman.
Simple, yet profound.
In these pages you will find a refreshing perspective on the key premises, promises, and provisions of God’s Word. You’ll discover its surprises. And you just might rekindle your desire to invest more time reading, learning, and growing from the world’s most precious Book.
