“The Word of God is our collective and yet deeply personal love letter from above. It positions you and me within proven, godly wisdom and gives precious insight into the heart, nature, and goodness of God. I have loved the individual books published thus far from The Passion Translation, and look forward with great anticipation to adding the entire New Testament with Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Songs to my own private (and public) reading. 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.”
- Bobbie Houston - Co-Senior Pastor, Hillsong Church

“The Passion Translation is a refreshing, dynamic version of the ancient Scriptures. Most translations of the Bible communicate what God has said, but The Passion Translation communicates equally God’s heart behind the words. It is a beautiful, moving read.”

"Forged many years ago while translating the Scriptures among South American tribes, and hammered out on the anvil of decades of personal devotion and apostolic experience, my dear friend Brian Simmons brings to the earth a powerful and refreshing translation of the Scriptures that is fueling and inflaming the hearts of tens of thousands world wide. Like the Living Bible that sprung forth in the days of the Jesus Movement, this translation bursts forth from the womb of this present revival. Read it and get caught up in a God-swirl of spiritual understanding and revelation."

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, the publisher really dropped the ball on the Kindle formatting with this release, and by the looks of the reviews, the print version as well.
First, the good:
I LOVE the Passion Translation, and to date have bought almost every single Kindle book Brian Simmons has produced, often times at the same price as "full length" books, just because I think his work is valuable and a great service to the Body of Christ. When I first saw the entire New Testament and Psalms, Proverbs, and Song of Solomon in one book instead of having to have a bunch of different files on my Kindle in order to access passages in the TPT, I was excited and pre-ordered it.
Once I finally got my hands on it, I started reading Song of Solomon and didn't notice the glaring navigation problems until I thought I'd check some segments out of John 14, 15, and 16 for a small study I was doing on passages from those chapters. I couldn't believe a digital Bible would neglect to include a way to easily navigate to the individual chapters of each NT book from the TOC menu. So, if you want to read a specific chapter out of the Psalms for example, you have to go to the beginning of it and swipe forward until you get to the chapter you want. Or I suppose go to Proverbs and swipe back. Either way, a time waster if you just wanted to open it up and read later in a book or reference something from it.
Either way, I'm surprised this made its way onto Amazon with this major oversight. When this is fixed I'll adjust my review and publicly give it the five stars it otherwise deserves.
June 27th, 2019 Update:
As some commenters on my review have pointed out, the TOC has been updated. Perhaps they've not used the same Kindle Bibles as I have, as this is still a BIT more convoluted to navigate than it need be compared to how other publishers set up their Kindle Bibles.
When you go to the link you're taken to the beginning of the letter/Gospel, but there's not an obvious way to navigate to the specific chapter of that book if you wanted to follow along with a preaching during a service or something like that on your Kindle device or app. It took e a long time to realize that the end of the previous book has the chapter links for the next one. So for example, if you wanted to go to a specific chapter in John, and you go to the "go to" tab on your Kindle reader like I did, you're taken to the introduction for John. If you swipe BACKWARD, you're shown the chapter links. If you're using an app, like the one for your Mac or PC, it show in the TOC that you're actually in Luke.
It took me forever to realize the chapter links were included because this is NOT an intuitive way to set up your chapters, IMO but I'll take it over the way the TOC was sorely lacking before!
I have the complete paper back collection & it’s Kindle companions.
I also have some of Brian Simmons other books which are a blessing as well.
Concerning this new Bible bound in Black Imitation Leather:
The binding is Smyth Sewn and ok for the price.
The Imitation Leather is actually pretty nice and soft.
This Bible lays relatively flat at about 70 pgs in.
It is a paste down liner & appears more on the cheap side (expected for this price.)
I really love it’s size; it is a Hand Size Bible for sure. Thinner than a Clarion but slightly taller by about an inch with the width being about a half-inch wider.
The paper appears to be less than a 28gsm; not sure exactly but it is very thin.
***It is not line matched.
***The paper quality is really subpar and thus the ghosting is so pronounced it makes this production of the tPt Translation unreadable.
(Some pages are not bad, while other pages are really bad.)
I would of preferred a slightly thicker Bible with better paper.
But you can get a nice 28gsm with Line Matching for this same thickness IMO.
It’s more the quality of the paper process that the paper goes through v. the gsm.
The Line Matching can make all the difference with 32gsm or lower and still is such a blessing for the 36gsm Bibles.
So I like the translation as a back up translation to use on top of a Solid Literal Translation, but again the paper quality for this current production is really bad and makes it unreadable.
I do not understand how this can make it past the quality control check.
I have $25-30 Bibles (slightly less) that have much better paper than this.
I would love to see another attempt made with Line Matching and Better Paper.
I would purchase one for sure.
My apologies with the shadows in the pictures; thank you all for reading. :)
I have waited so long for this to come out, and was so excited to open my box, but the font and see-through page issue is very very disappointing. I have to put a blank paper under the page I am on in order to read it. This is a little help, but only a little.
Thant being said, I am confident that it is going to be amazing, and I hope that a correction to these conditions comes out soon. I would much rather the book be larger and thicker to make up for the font and page visibility issue.

I haven't had any problems with the print or the thickness of the paper.
What I would find helpful is, where God is mentioned be it Father, Son or Holy Spirit, that the "He" or "Him" written in those verses could have a capital "H". This is the case in one of my other Bibles and it makes certain verses so much clearer.
Love the translation. Has such a freshness and sparkle about it.
Also love the soft faux leather in purple!
What is not so good is the ease of finding the chapters and verses. I 'searched the book' for Proverbs and then scrolled through until I reached Chapter 16. That was hard work! Maybe someone has found an easier way to search Bible Passages.
Footnotes , entirely voluntary but far from dry or onerous, excited me to learn more deeply of the accuracy of what we have been handed down and the passion of God's heart in communicating through His words to us
