Bono and Eugene Peterson Team-up in Short Film

Apparently, Bono is a big fan of The Message, Eugene Peterson’s idiomatic English translation of the Bible. Bono has been known to quote from it during his concerts. He has even read to his dying father from Peterson’s rendering of the New Testament.

Now Bono and Peterson have teamed up for a conversation about the Psalms. The teaser trailer is above. It is produced by Fuller Seminary, and here’s the description from the teaser’s YouTube page:

What happens when the lead singer of U2 and the writer of The Message meet to discuss the Psalms?

Find out in a new short film on Bono and Eugene Peterson premiering exclusively on FULLER studio, Fuller’s new online resource for a deeply informed spiritual life: Our stories. Our theology. Our voice: launching April 26.
