The Passion Translation
BroadStreet Publishing is the publisher of The Passion Translation. It represents their passion for creating meaningful, inspirational products that share God's truth to the world with beauty, quality, and creativity. They are thrilled to partner with Dr. Brian Simmons in this groundbreaking attempt to re-introduce the passion and fire of the Bible to English readers.
Many wonderful versions of the Bible grace our bookshelves, bookstores, software programs, even apps on our phones. In fact 88 percent of households own an average of nearly five Bibles! So why add one more?
The reason is simple: God wants His message of love to be received in every culture, every community, and every language.
About every hundred years or so the vocabulary of people undergoes a dramatic change. In this era of modern technology we find an even more rapid shift. Therefore, it is important to keep translations of the Bible in step with changes in the English language.
That's where The Passion Translation comes in.
The Passion Translation is an attempt to bring God's fiery heart of love and truth to this generation using Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts, bringing them together with the emotion and truth of God's Word, resulting in a clear, accurate, readable translation for modern English readers.
In past translations wonderfully gifted scholars were trained to focus on other factors besides the emotion of the text. As Brian has studied the original biblical manuscripts, he has uncovered what he believes is the love language of God that has been missing from other translations.
God refuses to meet us only in an intellectual way. God also wants to meet us heart level, so we must let the words go heart deep—which is what we're trying to do with this project. To bring words that go right through the human soul, past the defenses of our mind, and go right into our spirit. There is a language of the heart that must express the passion of this love-theology. That's why The Passion Translation is an important addition to peoples' devotional and spiritual life with Christ.
