Hi

I hear some people raving about this translation and others not so keen.

What is the value of The Passion Translation and how do you use it?

Thanks

My wife kept pointing me to it (she had the paper copy), & as a pastor I wanted to know what I can recommend. When she gave me a hard copy, I decided to use it devotionally, but to use it with Logos open, checking his translation choices with all my language tools. Invariably, he made me think... sometimes, his insights are inspired. Other times, I ended up wondering what he was thinking (or what Greek or Hebrew text he chose--my copy included only the Psalms, Proverbs, & NT).

I now have it in Logos, as well. 

Devotionally, I can recommend it, though Logos elected not to include the parts of the OT that have been completed. 

For serious study, I wouldn't choose it. 

Grace & Peace,
Bill

I think Mike Winger (The Bible Thinker) will have renowned experts - Doug Moo and the like - answer this in a book by book interview series starting this December.

Speaking of Mike Winger, he did an interview with Remnant Radio about the Passion translation that might be helpful where he goes into some of the details of the problems with it. He mentions the reactions of the scholars he has reviewing it.

Andrew Shead (Old Testament scholar) also wrote a review of the Psalms in the Passion translation in Themlios 43, no.1 (2018): 58-71.

Mike Winger has hours and hours into this. Everything he has produced on this is worth watching. His latest into it as mentioned above is having top scholars analyze it. They will be publishing papers. I am being cordial here. You need to educate yourself about this and everything surrounding it.
