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.

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.

Dr. Simmons believes that the Song of Songs is a key that unlocks the treasure chest of God’s divine love. No other portion of Scripture has such power to reveal the journey of those longing to know Jesus like the Song of Songs, Solomon’s great prophetic epic that Jesus himself sings over you. The Holy Spirit has hidden within the Song of Songs an amazing Sacred Journey. Dr. Simmons seeks to help unlock this mystery through his revelatory teaching. He prays that all who attend will encounter the fiery heart of God’s love!
