A Meditação do Dia - Gerson Borges

Ler é um exercício espiritual. O texto por excelência, a Bíblia, revela uma pessoa - Deus. Pessoas. Relacionamento. Vida. Eis o mundo da leitura! " Tome e Leia!" (Agostinho)

Bono e Eugene Peterson


Bono, o cara na frente do U2 voltou a ler a Bíblia com prazer e devoção. Graças a tradução ( versão poética ) do pastor de pastores Eugene Peterson.
Para quem lê em inglês, eis o recado que ele mandou para Peterson :

"Hi Mr. Peterson, Eugene. My name is Bono. I'm a singer with the group U2. I wanted to sort of video message you my thanks, and our thanks in the band, for this remarkable work you've done translating the Scriptures. Really, really a remarkable work."

"As a songwriter, it was very clear to me that you were a poet as well as a scholar. You brought the musicality to God's Word that I'm sure was there, was always there in intention.

"There have been some great translations, some very literary translations, but no translations that I've read that speaks to me in my own language. So I want to thank you for that."

"And it's been ten years, that's a long time, so take a rest now, won't you? Bye."

....

Cool, huh?
