    Wow. This is awkward because I think I am the lowest rating for this book... Anyway. I don't think this was that terrible but it seemed... wholly unnecessary? I read this alongside reading Psalms from the Bible itself. And while I love reading Psalms the language isn't overly complicated. It's actually quite straightforward and easy to understand. In fact, I think the Bible even words the psalms more beautifully than this translation does. And pslams almost reads as poetry as well. Which means th Wow.

In fact, I think the Bible even words the psalms more beautifully than this translation does. And pslams almost reads as poetry as well. Which means that if the original text is easy to understand, reads like poetry and also is beautifully worded, why do we need this translation? Answer: we don't. In the end, when comparing the two, I found this poetry translation to be less enthralling, simplifying the already simple (aka oversimplified) and in comparison just not as good? So I would recommend just reading Psalms. However, this was given to me with a devotional companion where you responded to the Psalms and that was actually a really great devotional! So get the devotional and fill it in as you read Psalms :)

    The Passion Translation is a new translation that includes the Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew underpinnings of each word and phrase in the Scripture. The psalms are called Poetry on Fire, and it is an apt title. The Passion Translation uses more expressive language than the historical translations (NIV, ASV, etc.), or the NLT. It uses more imagery and analogies that provide new depth in contemplation and meditation. This language and use of imagery make it easier to hold on to the truths in the Scrip The Passion Translation is a new translation that includes the Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew underpinnings of each word and phrase in the Scripture.

It uses more imagery and analogies that provide new depth in contemplation and meditation. This language and use of imagery make it easier to hold on to the truths in the Scripture and to unpack the deeper levels in these words. There’s also more focus on one’s personal relationship with God and its implications. My review from the Passion Translation is from a devotional perspective for those who read the Bible to draw closer to God. From that perspective, it’s a must read. - M.L.

    This translation of the Psalms lives up to its subtitle -"the Passion Translation." It really brought out the heart / emotions of the various authors in the Psalms in ways many other translations don't. I'd recommend meditating in this book.

    I read this slowly, spending close to a year reading and meditating on each one. It was a beautiful experience and this was a great translation.

    I received a copy of the Psalms from the Icon media Group for an independent and honest review. I was surprised. The translation is fresh and full of unique poetic language. From Psalm 73:7, "Pampered and pompous, vice oozes from their souls." this is a thought-for-thought translation, not word for word. It is a fresh look at poetry that shows unique expression.

    I am so enjoying a fresh slant on the Psalms. Like uncovering a new understanding of God's Character. Refreshing at every level. Every adjective that describes who He is a pouring water on dry ground. Thank you for allowing the Lord to inspire you. I am so enjoying a fresh slant on the Psalms.

    I gave this book my highest rating of 5 stars (rating scale in bio). It's been said, "Emotions are excellent servants, but horrible masters." Brian Simmons teaches us to use our God-given emotions along with scripture instead settling for either extreme: excluding emotions or only using emotions. I strongly recommend this translation to those who are interested in allowing Christianity to fulfill its role in our world in the forms of revival, restoration, and revitalization.

    This is a beautiful translation, breathing a freshness into the book of Psalms, and making it a joy to read. I've taken my time over it's reading and feel all the more satisfied as a result.
