Updates on The Passion Translation project!

August 16th, 2013

Hi Friends!

The Passion Translation project is moving forward. You can learn more about this here:

We now have 5 volumes published in both paperback and kindle/nook formats:

Song of Songs



Letters from Heaven (Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1st & 2nd Timothy)


Next in line for publication is the Gospel of John, Eternal Love, which is now in the editing process and will published by 5-Fold Media sometime early next year! We can’t wait for you to be able to read for yourself John’s tremendous account of the life of Jesus Christ.

We hope you will help us get the word out about this project and its potential to bless the English speaking world. Many pastors and leaders have told us how it encourages them to preach from to their congregations. Ample footnotes that unlock even more secrets from the text have provide many pastors with a greater understanding of God’s Word. Thousands of believers are now reading the published portion of The Passion Translation each day and are being filled with fresh understanding of the Scriptures. Please pray for Candice and me as we move this project forward. And we invite you to click on the Partner page on our website to help support us in our journey. If you’d like to meet us, check out our calendar and see if there is one of our meetings near you! We love meeting our friends and getting to know them.

Let me give you a taste of Proverbs, I know you’ll love it!

Blessings to you!


Proverbs 13:13-16 TPT

¹³Despise the Word, will you?

Then you’ll pay the price and it won’t be pretty!

 But the one who honors the Father’s holy instructions

Will be rewarded.

¹⁴When the lovers of God teach you truth

A fountain of life opens up within you,

And their wise instruction will deliver you

From the ways of death.

¹⁵Everyone admires a wise, sensible person

But the treacherous walk on the path of ruin.[1]

¹⁶Everything a wise and shrewd man does

Comes from a source of revelation-knowledge,[2]

But the behavior of a fool puts foolishness on parade![3]

[1] 13:15 As translated from the Aramaic and the Septuagint. The Hebrew is uncertain.

[2] 13:16 Or, “A wise person thinks ahead.”

[3] 13:16 The implication is that the fool is unable to finish anything he begins.
