Praise for the Print Edition

One of the greatest things to happen with Bible translation in my lifetime.

—Bill Johnson, Pastor, Bethel Church, Best-Selling Author

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....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.

—Bobbie Houston, Co-Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church

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.

—Lou Engle, The Call

Brian Simmons’ work is truly breathtaking! We so appreciate the labor of love that went into translating the Scriptures directly from the Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic. The Passion Translation has energized our study of the Bible, and we’re certain it will do the same for you.

—John and Lisa Bevere, Founders of Messenger International and Best-Selling Authors

I believe the Passion Translation will be the Bible of choice for the next Jesus people movement.

—Dr. Ché Ahn, President & Founder, Harvest International Ministry Founder, HRock Church, Pasadena, CA, International Chancellor, Wagner University

The Passion Translation makes powerful truths more accessible and at the same time stirs our inner man to rejoice and receive.

—Graham Cooke, Speaker, Author, and Founder of Brilliant Book House

    This is not a reliable translation of the Bible, and should not be treated as such.

    I love The Passion Translation! As a pastor who has charismatic and pentecostal roots it is great to have a version of scripture that reinforces the gifts of the Spirit as being alive and working today through God's children. It supports my views of a victorious eschatology and non-dispensational theology. An amazing version of scripture.

    Steer clear of the Passion. There is a wide array of other more reliable, helpful, and accurate translations. There are very many reasons that the Passion Translation is problematic, but some of the most important reasons are: 1) The author regularly exaggerates his qualifications to translate (he is not trained in the Biblical languages) 2) The author claims that he received “downloads” and secrets in the Biblical languages from Jesus himself although multiple scholars who have reviewed the Passion attest strongly to the fact that this is not an accurate translation (which also show that his claims to have secrets to the languages is inaccurate) 3) The author regularly references the “original Aramaic” (which is not a real thing, he is talking about the Aramaic translations of the Greek) which he deceivingly suggests is better than using the language the New Testament is actually written in (Greek). 4) The author regularly makes additions to and changes to the text in order to match his theological views 5) The Passion is advertised on its website as an “excellent primary translation” which is one of many of the deceiving ways in which it is advertised (it is at best a sectarian paraphrase) Ultimately, the author makes some staggering claims about this translation (one being that Jesus breathed on him to give him secrets to the biblical languages). If these claims are true, then we should all be using this translation, if they are false it seems most wise to steer clear. We have very good reason to believe many of his claims about his qualifications and his visions of Jesus are false (the wide agreement among scholars that the passion is not a translation and the fact he doesn’t have any training in the Biblical languages). At the very minimum, we must recognize it is a paraphrase and use it as a 3rd of 4th reference to multiple reliable translations, but the issue with this is that this is not advertised as a paraphrase, but it is advertised as a faithful rendering of the Bible making it dangerous. Mike Winger has interviewed many scholars who reviewed certain books of the Passion and you can easily find these reviews online.

    This is a very poor translation. It's barely a paraphrase. And it adds a lot to the original text including using denominationally specific words and overusing specific words, seemingly to push certain theology. It's good stylistically, but not worth your time if you're looking for any kind of accuracy.

    I already use the TPT New Testament, Psalms, Proverbs & Song of Songs in both their WORDsearch and Kindle versions alongside other Bibles I have now in LOGOS. I find it a very useful 'paraphrase' to use to help make points to people in today's UK society together with the Hodder & Stoughton NIV, MSG, CEV and NKJV. I am just waiting for the full update TPT to be downloaded to LOGOS, hopefully this year. Blessings.

    I have no idea why this book is so popular, it adds so many words to the actual Bible as to make it say something completely different it’s really annoying! It’s almost as if Yoda did this version. I would also say that it is not a translation in that it has not been written by a team of biblical scholars and translated from the Greek, and claims to be from the original Aramaic, but the bible was not written in Aramaic!? The only thing going for it is that you can buy it with many different cover designs, and it could accompany bible reading, but on the whole miss’s the meaning mark so much , that unless you have sound doctrine there is a danger that it will completely mislead the reader. Definitely wouldn’t recommend it for teaching.

    Great translation that helps point people to the heart of God! John 5:37-40 I docked one star because Logos didn't include the Psalms, Proverbs and Song of Solomon which was available at the time of production and was/is included in Amazon's version of the product. Please fix and give us a complete product.

    Definitely has a particular goal in mind here, and it is stated in the description. Useful to understand the thinking of some movements within the church, which is why I've given it a second star. It picks its spots to take liberties with the text and most certainly approaches a paraphrase more than a faithful translation.

    This paraphrase, not translation, came about because the "Apostle" Brian Simmons was summoned to Heaven and was Commissioned by Jesus to write this massive piece of heresy. The story itself should clue you in to the author and make you RUN AWAY from this hot mess. This does not deserve a plus rating of any sort.

    This is an amazing translation, bringing out the depth of the original language. Rather than an attempt at paraphrasing the original text, Brian Simmons and team have worked diligently to convert the meaning of the original language of the day and time of writing. This version melts my heart. You just gotta love it! Having been a LOGOS user through multiple years and update, I wish to express my deep gratitude to LOGOS for bringing this to our library. Thank you!

    This is an easily accessible translation/paraphrase of the New Testament. I have been blessed by TPT and look forward to the completion of the OT (Isaiah is now available). The footnotes provide a fascinating take on passages, bringing the poetry and imagery to life. Psalms in particular reads beautifully and draws you in.

    Will this be updated to include the Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs? I hate when Logos releases a partial product. If I were to buy this from Amazon it would include those books in addition to the New Testament.

    This is not a translation but rather a rewording to fit the writer personal theological belief. I do not know which translation he used to reinterpret but it does not reflect the original intention of the message in several areas. I wish I could give this rating a one star review.

    I love this translation! It forces me to see scripture in another way. If you're looking for a "thought for thought" translation to add to your study or personal devotions this one is great.

    I use NASB as my main bible and often reference ESV, NIV, NJJV for my study, each have limitations. I have also referenced The Passion Translation (using other software and printed version) many times and found it bring a rich depth of understanding to the passage in modern English, very insightful and valuable. If I did not have any other Greek/Hebrew tools and only one translation, I would use The Passion Translation + the Holy Spirit. Thanks Brian Simmons and all involved.

    Be careful. This is NOT a translation, but a paraphrase. It contains one man's thoughts and interpretations that could be misguiding. Proceed with Caution. Let it tickle your ears, but do not let it shape your theology. Philippians 4:7 for instance...among many others
