No Book divisions

There are no separations of books or chapters in terms of headings. There is no way to tell what book or Co alter you are on. Love the translation but I think this was an omission in the way they set up the audio book.

Written and spoken versions.

Soooo enjoyed this book. The audible has more words in it than the written one and sometimes he misses a few words in the written. Male gender is in the written version of chapter 8 when the female gender is intended. Overall it is fabulous to hear and read at the same time and receive the heart of God so passionately for us. 💞

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.

I enjoyed this translation of the Bible

I enjoyed the passion translation as a devotional reading version of the Bible. However I find this audiobook difficult because there are no markers of what chapter in the Bible you are at so you do a heck of a lot of scrolling try to find the passage that you wanted actually read or lisren to. I also find the music between the books and the chapters to be a tad distracting. especially when I am reading the Bible as a quiet devotional.

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! https://drive.google.com/file/d/1OXmDcHjfociETVgmCeCUVNpZao6e9c2M/view?usp=sharing

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!

Wonderful translation / gross oversight the chapter numbers are not included

This is a great translation that opens a whole new freshness to the word of God. It’s wonderful to have all these books in one audiobook. That being said, the fact that chapter numbers were not originally included in the first edition is a terrible oversight on the part of this production. I am reviewing the second edition which still does not have chapter numbers to my great disappointment. I feel that we all deserve a third edition that includes chapter numbers and we should not have to pay to re-purchase the audiobook again to get the basic navigational tool to play this book. Audible.com there are many many reviews that state the same thing about the chapter numbers, would you please consider re-issuing a third edition with the chapter numbers so we can easily navigate this book. Thank you for your consideration

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.

So so...So Good. Gets even better with study!

After listening 50+ times, so far, I am more convince than 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. John 1:14

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.

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. Best Regards, Lisa from Norway
