Overview

“How long, O Lord?” “When will you answer my prayer?” “Why must I wait so long for your promise to be fulfilled?”

The Christian journey is not endless bliss with perfect relationships and an abundant financial portfolio. Perfection can only be found in Christ. Even though lovers of God experience fullness of life, they still face unexpected trials, unpredictable difficulties, and seemingly unsolvable problems.

Every child of God will have a wilderness experience, but not everyone has to have a wilderness wandering.

In The Wilderness, Brian and Candice share some of their difficult seasons as tribal missionaries in Central and South America where they encountered demonic powers, lost their possessions in a flooding river, and experienced their daughter being bitten by a venomous snake. Combined with the wilderness encounters the Israelites faced, these stories will help you understand your own challenges of faith, delayed answers to prayer, and miraculous interventions that display God’s glory.

God wants to bring you from the wilderness to a miracle. You will make it through to the other side and discover God’s heart of love for you!

"One of the greatest things to happen with Bible translation in my lifetime."
"The Word of God is our collective and yet deeply personal love letter from above. It positions you and me within proven, godly wisdom and gives precious insight into the heart, nature, and goodness of God. I have loved the individual books published thus far from The Passion Translation, and look forward with great anticipation to adding the entire New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs to my own private (and public) reading. With my husband, Brian, and our Hillsong church family, we know these pages will bring to life the One whose name is Jesus—whose passion is humanity and whose heart is for you."

"Forged many years ago while translating the Scriptures among South American tribes, and hammered out on the anvil of decades of personal devotion and apostolic experience, my dear friend Brian Simmons brings to the earth a powerful and refreshing translation of the Scriptures that is fueling and inflaming the hearts of tens of thousands world wide. Like the Living Bible that sprung forth in the days of the Jesus Movement, this translation bursts forth from the womb of this present revival. Read it and get caught up in a God-swirl of spiritual understanding and revelation."

"Over the past few years, The Passion Translation has deeply changed my life. In the summer of 2016 I brought “Letters From Heaven” including Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Collisions, and I & II Timothy on vacation with me to read in the early hours of morning before my children woke up. Little did I know how eye opening this translation would be. I found myself weeping in the midst of revelation and then laughing at the goodness and profound nature of God’s love for us. I not only saw the word of God with fresh lenses, but with a depth I’ve never experienced. I cannot encourage you enough to dig into The Passion Translation."

"I love the Bible. I own dozens of translations and hundreds of commentaries to immerse myself in the language and the context of the biblical narrative to see how the Living Word of God impacts culture and the love of God transforms lives. It has been amazing to witness how The Passion Translation has awakened a new love for the Word of God in so many lives, and how for me personally it has given greater depth to the things I had previously explored. I know that I am benefiting in such a profound way from hundreds of hours of someone else’s journey by opening these pages. It allows individuals to dive right into an encounter with Jesus regardless of their previous experience with the Bible or church. In plain language it opens the doors for a post-Christian culture to hear the Word of God with fresh language that speaks directly to who they are and where they are at, and reveals to them beauty of the gospel and they’re desperate need for Jesus. Thank you Brian Simmons and the whole team at The Passion Translation for partnering with the Holy Spirit in such a tremendous and necessary project."

"Having studied New Testament in Germany on a Fulbright Scholarship, I grew to marvel at the pithiness of Martin Luther’s translation (1534) of the Bible into German. Unfortunately, it made me disappointed every time I opened an English translation of the Scriptures. Just didn’t have the same “bite” and passion of Luther. I’ve been following The Passion Translation as each book of the Bible has been published, and finally I’ve found something that rivals the work of the great reformer. The Bible is an edgy book, and TPT returns that sword of the Word of God back to its razor-sharp edge and shine."
