BroadStreet Publishing set to release
The Passion Translation® New Testament
on October 31, 2017

Minneapolis, MN – (October 30, 2017) – BroadStreet Publishing is excited to announce the launch of the New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs in their bestselling Bible translation, The Passion Translation®—which has sold over one million individual books—on October 31, 2017.

The Passion Translation is a new, heart-level translation that expresses God’s fiery heart of love (using Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts), merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God’s Word. The lead translator, Dr. Brian Simmons (a missionary in South America for fifteen 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.

John and Lisa Bevere, founders of Messenger International have high praise for The Passion Translation New Testament expressing, “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 are certain it will do the same for you.”

Bill Johnson, pastor of Bethel Church said of The Passion Translation, “[It’s] one of the greatest things to happen with Bible translation in my lifetime.”

Bobbie Houston, co-pastor of Hillsong Church added, “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.”

BroadStreet Publishing has made the The Passion Translation New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs available on multiple digital platforms including Bible Gateway, Logos Faithlife, Olive Tree, ProPresenter, Word Search, and YouVersion.

This New Testament has been printed in a variety of stunning covers for every Bible reader—black, brown, pink, purple, and red in faux leather, and floral, ivory, and slate in hardcover. It features insightful footnotes, commentary, word studies, cross references, and alternate translations. Additionally, it includes extensive introductions and outlines for each book.
