“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, I know these pages will bring to life the One whose name is Jesus—whose passion is humanity and whose heart is for you.”

Co-Founder, Hillsong Church

“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.”

“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 worldwide. 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.”

“During my over four decades of ministry around the world, I have read and preached from various Bible translations in different languages. They are all powerful and anointed, and each has its particular strengths. The Passion Translation is one that speaks with particular poetic imagination in a style that is deeply moving and easily accessible. I have found it truly refreshing in personal devotion. It has been a steadfast help and comfort in the midst of many storms.”

Young and old are experiencing the inevitable freedom that comes when you encounter the power found in God’s Word, and are being ignited with a passion for Jesus that will not be extinguished. My own personal devotion and study has been deeply impacted by The Passion Translation and I am grateful for what this work is adding to the body of Christ.”

“The Passion Translation is a refreshing, dynamic version of the ancient Scriptures. Most translations of the Bible communicate what God has said, but The Passion Translation communicates equally God’s heart behind the words. It is a beautiful, moving read.”

“I have devoured The Passion Translation! There is a fragrance of God’s Spirit that emanates from the powerful expressions that Brian Simmons has brought forth in this translation. Not only have I used The Passion Translation for teaching, but I have picked up certain books of the Bible and read them like a living novel. I love this translation!”

“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, Colossians, 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 it reveals to them the beauty of the gospel and their 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.”

“The Passion Translation, what a gift! I have been deeply impacted by this beautiful translation. I have encountered the Lord in deeper ways than ever. I have heard his heart and seen his love in unprecedented ways as I have studied and meditated on the beautiful poetic words of his heart contained within this translation. I cannot get enough of this translation and the deep well of revelation that it carries. Brian Simmons has so beautifully partnered with the heart of God in this life-changing translation. This revelation of the whispers of heaven has ignited my heart in passion and love for Jesus in a whole new way. I find myself catapulted daily into a deeper level of encountering him, his goodness, his kindness, his love, and his perfect nature during my devotional time with the Lord as I study, meditate, and feast upon the glorious treasures contained within The Passion Translation.

“I’m passionate about making God’s Word come to life! What I love about The Passion Translation is that when I read it, it feels like a scratch-n-sniff Bible. The text jumps off the page and makes me excited to read more. Not only is the translation refreshing, but the commentary is brilliant!”

“Brian Simmons was handpicked for this masterpiece.

I have met Brian Simmons a number of times. We have spoken about our times on the mission field. It turned out we were in Panama’s Darién province at the same time—only separated by ten miles of jungle! (That’s a mighty long way in the jungle.)

Brian is a gifted linguist and Spirit-filled theologian. That’s an exciting combination and worth noting before you embark on your journey through the pages of his masterpiece.

This translation was written for this time when God is doing a new thing on the earth. The translation gives language to revival culture. It is filled with nuances and imagery of a fresh anointing that’s in the earth. The first book that Brian translated was Song of Songs. No wonder this translation was given the title ‘The Passion Translation.’”
