God’s heart message is for us

The Bible translated from the perspective of what God’s heart message is for us. A love letter written over time preparing us for His Son.

Amazing!!!

I'm so happy that this Translation is on audio!! I just discovered this Translation a few months ago and instantly loved it.

The only thing I would add would be to rename the chapters to the Bible chapters for easy navigation.

*EDIT*: I made a chart with all of the Chapters labeled! See link to get it!

Great translation! Impossible to navigate!!

The Passion is a great translation but Audible has treated it as one book with single chapters instead of dividing into 27 Books with their corresponding chapters. It’s impossible to find the book of the Bible you are looking for!

Throughly Enjoyable

I am generally not a “fan” of Bible Translation as I grew up with King James : my father was a minister.

However, this translation have moved like no other. I purchased both the Kindle and the Audible versions.

My only criticism is that the Books of this Translation are only identified as “Chapters” in the Audible version.

Otherwise; this is a great resource in its understanding , scope, and subsequent application.

No way to locate books within bible

I enjoy the Passion Translation. However, it is a very large book considering of multiple books and NONE of the books or chapters are titled so it is difficult to locate any specific book you may want to listen to within the bible.

The Passion Translation comes alive as Dr Brian Simmons dramatizes it!

I have listen to the entire 36 hours and loved every minute! Even slept with him reading it! I’ve been reading the Bible for 42 years and this Translation and now the Audible version have created a deeper hunger for MORE!!

So so Good!

After listening 17+ times, so far, I am more convinced then ever of its accuracy and the absolute need to consume God's word daily! Intimacy in a relationship requires time. God wants to talk to you! and this makes it easy to listen.

Wonderful!

This translation is so wonderful and tranforming. Being Christian all my life I'm very familiar with the Bible, but this was like reading it for the first time again. Loved it! Thank you so much for this translation, which is so needed for this season. God bless you Brian Simmons.

samsung mobile app audible chapters

I read the other post about not being able to navigate very well and had read where it was supposed to have been updated Nov 3. It was not updated for mobile app. I had seen where someone had posted the descriptions of where the actual chapters started in reviews but since purchasing the book I can no longer see the reviews to find that listed books/chapters.
