SATURDAY, OCTOBER 17th @ 8:00 PM (EASTERN) – DR. BRIAN SIMMONS, author of The Passion Translation, joins Laura & Friends on Facebook.
If you were taught to think of Bible study as a spiritual “discipline,” it’s time to think differently! The Word of God is actually spiritual superfood. It will awaken you, build you up, strengthen and empower you. Come join in as we talk about how to unlock the massive power of the Word of God in our own lives. Hosted by Cindy Herzog.
COME LIVE IN THE YES! We believe that living connected to God is much better than living any other way, and we can all live connected to Him. YES exists to give real people real access, so that God’s presence and his love start invading our everyday lives.
THE LIVING WORD OF GOD: it’s the amazing power tool that you already hold in your own hands. It’s a massive love-gift, given straight from the Father’s heart to yours, and it holds the power to change your life. Let’s learn how to value it, how to experience it, how to use it; and what happens to us when we do.
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. His most recent releases include Genesis: Firstfruits and Isaiah: The Vision.
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 for more than forty-eight years and have three children, six grandchildren, and three precious great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
