BroadStreet Publishing releases The Passion
Translation New Testament in Fall 2017

Minneapolis, MN (June 15, 2017)BroadStreet Publishing® is thrilled to announce the release of the New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs in their bestselling Bible translation, The Passion Translation, which will be in bookstores October 31, 2017.

The Passion Translation is a new, heart-level translation that expresses God’s fiery heart of love to this generation using Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God’s Word. The lead translator of The Passion Translation, Dr. Brian Simmons—a missionary in South America for 15 years, linguist, minister, and Bible teacher—has studied Bible translation principles to help Christians encounter the heart of God through their Bible reading.

Dr. Simmons believes that God longs to have his Word expressed in a way that unlocks the passion of his heart. The goal of this work is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible, revealing the deep mysteries of the Scripture in the love language of God—the language of the heart.

The timing of the release purposefully coincides with the 500th Anniversary of the Reformation on October 31, celebrating its famous motto: The Word of the Lord endures forever!

The Passion Translation New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs features easy-to-read single column format and in-depth footnotes that include insightful study notes, commentary, word studies, cross references, and alternate translations. It also includes extensive introductions and outlines for each book with words of Jesus in bold, readable font for main text and footnotes, and a ribbon marker. It is available in both hardcover and faux leather.
