Do you ever read the Bible and feel like the words are old-fashioned? Do you wish it would come so alive that you couldn’t put it down? Imagine … a Bible that grips your heart with fire and emotion for the lover of your soul. Well that’s where The Passion Translation comes in––it’s a new Bible translation that expresses God’s passion and love to the modern world, bringing hope and fresh revelation through the breath of the Holy Spirit that will absolutely stir your heart!
But why have another Bible translation? Find out in this week’s Spirit Connection podcast episode, with my special guest Dr. Brian Simmons, a former missionary, linguist and the lead translator of The Passion Translation.
Brian and his wife Candice were long-term missionaries and church planters in South America; there, he translated the New Testament for the Kuna people of Panama. They traveled the world teaching the Word and pastored a church in Connecticut for 18 years.
After a 2009 encounter with the Lord, Brian began translating the scriptures into a fresh, dynamic version that doesn’t “de-supernaturalize” the Word of God. It is an attempt to bring God’s fiery heart of love and truth to this generation, bringing ancient manuscripts together with the emotion and truth of God’s Word, resulting in a clear, accurate, readable translation for English readers … not just intellectually, but heart deep!
