A message from AE Founder Michael Cassidy on the passing of Eugene Petersen:
Carol and I and all in African Enterprise rejoice in the magnificent Christian life and testimony of Eugene Petersen and celebrate with all heaven his arrival there. Likewise will millions across the world who have been blessed by his writings and witness.
This is especially true of The Message which has enabled millions to grasp better the meaning of the Biblical text.
Eugene, Jan, Carol and I first met when we shared the platform together at a major conference in Northern Ireland. And we became firm friends ever after. A high point was staying a week in their lovely home on Lake Flathead in Montana. That was a deeply bonding time & one we will never forget.
Another great privilege was to have Eugene do forewords to two of my books. Perhaps many of those books sold just because people saw Eugene’s name on the cover!! Nothing to do with Michael!
The Christian world will miss the presence here on earth of this gentle giant, but till the end of time, people will be BLESSED by his writings and spirituality legacy.

We join a great multitude around the world in expressing deepest sympathy to Jan, Eric and the rest of the family as they mourn the loss of this precious man of God as a husband, father, grandfather, friend or partner in Christian Service.
We know too they will celebrate the glorious truth of the Apostle’s words when he writes: “Eye has not seen nor ear heard neither has there entered the heart of man the things God has prepared for them that love Him.”( 1 Cor.2:9).
Eugene has now entered these realities. PRAISE GOD.
