Sample passages:

From Luke 15
11 Then Jesus said, "Once there was a Father with two sons. 12 The younger son came to his Father and said, "Father, don't you think that it's time to give me the share of your estate that belongs to me? So the Father went ahead and distributed among the two sons their inheritance. 13 Shortly afterwards, the younger son packed up all his belongings and traveled off to see the world. He journeyed to a far off land where he soon wasted all he was given in a binge of extravagant and reckless living!
14 "Now with everything spent and nothing left, he soon grew hungry, for there was a severe famine in that land. 15 So he begged a farmer in that country to hire him. So the farmer hired him and sent him out to feed the pigs! 16 The hungry son was so famished, that he was willing to even eat the slop given to the pigs, because no one would feed him a thing!
17 "Humiliated, the son finally realized what he was doing and he thought to himself, 'There are so many workers at my Father's house who have all the food they want with plenty to spare! They lack nothing! Why am here dying of hunger, feeding these pigs and eating their slop? 18 I want to go back home to my Father's house and I'll say to Him, 'Father, I was so wrong! I have sinned against You! 19 I'll never be worthy to be called Your son, please Father, just treat me like one of Your employees.'
20 "So the young son set off for home, to his Father's house. But from a long distance away, His Father saw him coming dressed as a beggar and great compassion swelled up in His heart for His son who was returning home. So the Father raced out to meet him! He swept him up in His arms, hugged him so dearly and kissed him over and over with tender love!
21 "Then the son spoke up and said, 'Father, I was so wrong! I have sinned against You! I could never deserve to be called Your son, just let me be...' But the Father interrupted and said, 'Son, you're home now!'
22 "Then turning to His servants the Father said, 'Quick, bring Me the best robe, my very own robe, and I will place it upon his shoulders! Bring the ring, the seal of sonship, and I will put it upon his finger! And bring out the best shoes you can find for My son! 23 Let's prepare a great feast and celebrate! 24 For this beloved son of mine was once dead, but now he's alive again! Once he was lost, but now He is found!' And every one began to celebrate with overflowing joy!

From Acts 1
42 Every believer was faithfully devoted to following the teachings of the apostles. Their hearts were mutually linked to one another; sharing communion together and they came together regularly for prayer. 43 A deep sense of holy awe swept over everyone, and the apostles performed many miraculous signs and wonders. 44 All the believers were in fellowship as one body, and they shared with each other whatever they had. 45 Out of generosity they would even sell their assets to distribute the proceeds to those among them who in need. 46 Daily they met together in the Temple courts, and in each other's homes to celebrate Communion. They shared meals together with joyful hearts and tender humility. 47 They were continually filled with praises to God, enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord kept adding to their number daily those who were being saved.

Brian Simmons

DR. BRIAN SIMMONS is the lead translator of The Passion Translation. The Passion Translation (TPT) is a heart-level translation that uses Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic manuscripts to express God's fiery heart of love to this generation, merging the emotion and life-changing truth of God's Word. The hope for TPT is to trigger inside every reader an overwhelming response to the truth of the Bible and to reveal the deep mysteries of the Scriptures in the love language of God, the language of the heart. Brian is currently translating the Old Testament.

After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971, Brian and his wife, Candice, answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to unreached peoples. Taking their three children to the tropical rain forest of Central America, they planted churches for many years with the Paya-Kuna people group. Dr. Simmons established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed, and, having been trained in linguistics and Bible translation principles, assisted with the translation of the Paya-Kuna New Testament.

After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ. He and his wife planted numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in New England (U.S.). They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel full time as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world.

Brian is the author of numerous books, Bible studies, and devotionals that help readers encounter God's heart and experience a deeper revelation of God as our Bridegroom King, including Throne Room Prayer, The Sacred Journey, Prayers on Fire, The Divine Romance, and The Vision.

Brian and Candice have been married since 1971 and have three children as well as precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
