More About the Author

Francois grew up in a home where Jesus was loved and lived. His parents were in fulltime ministry in an interdenominational mission. His eldest brother Leon, is a missionary in the Ukraine and Russia for many years.
Lydia and Francois met on the 25th of August 1974, while he was working with Youth For Christ. She was sixteen and he nineteen! The following year he studied Greek and Hebrew at the University of Pretoria for three years while Lydia completed her nursing training. In 1978 Francois also spent a year with Youth with a Mission.
They married in January 1979 and are blessed with four amazing children, Renaldo,
Tehilla, Christo and Stefan. They worked in fulltime mission for fourteen years, during which time they also pastored a church and led a training facility for more than 700 students over a five-year period.
They then left the ministry and for ten years did business mainly in the tourism industry. They built and managed a Safari Lodge in the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and eventually relocated to Hermanus where they started Southern Right boat-based whale watching.
In December 2000 Francois began to write the book, "God believes in You" which led to him being invited to speak at various Christian camps and churches.
They are now back in fulltime ministry since February 2004, and travel at least once a year abroad and almost every month into Africa and around South Africa.
Francois has written several books in both English and Afrikaans, including God Believes in You, Divine Embrace, Done! and The Mystery Revealed. He is currently passionately engaged in continuing with The Mirror Translation.
His work is being translated into several African languages as well as Chinese, Russian, Hungarian, German, French, Spanish, Swedish, Polish, Portuguese, Japanese, Dutch and Slovakian.
They reach thousands of people daily on facebook and bulk email. You can also subscribe to his daily devotionals.

Format: Paperback
God has done the unthinkable ... the impossible, when He became a man. Despite the limitations and constraints of a human body, the infinite One lived and moved and revealed himself, without constraint, in the person of Jesus Christ. The human body by itself is only flesh ... but united with God, it becomes the most holy place of sacred encounter. In similar manner, God did the impossible in giving us the Scriptures: Despite the limitations and constraints of human language, God is able to reveal himself without constraint through these words. The words by themselves are simply human words appealing to nothing more than human intellect... but united with God, they become spirit and create an environment for sacred encounter. It is out of this place of sacred encounter that Francois brings us a fresh and exciting translation of the New Testament books. There is such a wealth of understanding contained within the variances and subtle meanings of the original Greek ... the sheer number of translations are testimony to that. The Mirror Translation makes full use of the richness within the words themselves, but even more importantly, it is inspired by the revelation of Christ in us, the mirror encounter in which we see Jesus as the unveiling of our own identity. Francois' translations of the scriptures have inspired me for more than 20 years ... it is time that the world benefits from them!

I have been reading this Bible online for years now, and eagerly awaiting the release of this print version! Why? Because it gives context. It gives each verse a paraphrase that fits with the overall point of the Bible, to reveal Christ in you! It could really help those who are new to the true message of Christ and his accomplishment at the cross, saving them the confusion of random verses that don't seem to make sense.

Honestly, every Bible translation has it's bias, and parts of every Bible out there have been translated according to the revelation of the translator, even Bibles that have been translated by teams of people. The wonderful thing about this Bible, is that the author has genuine revelation of scripture, and is a scholar of considerable insight into Christ. I thank God for Francois, and this Bible, because they have helped me considerably, to really dig into the scriptures and find fascinating things, facets of God in Christ that I never knew! They have revealed facets of Christ in me that I never dared to dream!!

Read this paraphrase alongside all of the various translations, and enjoy, as the Holy Spirit leads you to see the beauty of Christ in you, and you in Him, a never ending adventure of JOY!!

Format: Paperback
This translation is Christ-Centered. For so long the Bible has been twisted into a book of rules designed to keep people in a never ending search. But behold the kingdom of God is at hand. The earth is filled with the glory of the Lord. The old order of things, the fall, was crucified with Christ. Behold the new creation has begun. The Good News proclaims the whole world reconciled to God. If you are wondering if the gospel really means "good news" then check out this paraphrase translation by Francious Du Toit. It will help you to see that the Bible is all about the good news of Christ. We do not have a skitzofrentic God who "for so loved the world" but who is also angry at the world. In Christ he has done nothing but reconcile the world to Himself.

Format: Paperback
The King James version of the Bible is widely considered to be the greatest piece of literature ever published in the English language. Known for its almost poetic expression of a literal translation from the original languages, the KJV is the most beloved rendering of the Bible in the English-speaking world. However, what lacks in a literal word-for-word translation is the ability of expression of the various nuances and meanings within each word. Many believe the Amplified Bible was the solution to what was missing from literal word-for-word translations. However, while allowing for greater expression and therefore greater understanding of what is written in the text, the Amplified sacrifices the poetic majesty of Father's expression of Himself and us in Him. Father never intended for a written testimony of Himself to be rendered in cold, exact phrases; but rather, the scriptures are His love letter to all creation, the benevolent love of a Father to His children, and the passionate wooing call to His beloved bride--all in one. It is a great pleasure to declare that the Mirror Word translation is the perfect fusion of the poetic and powerful language of the King James with the expressiveness of the Amplified, clearly manifesting the scriptures as they were intended: to be a witness and testimony of Jesus and that by seeing and beholding Him as God, we consequently discover our own identity, having sprung forth from the logos (mind, thoughts) of God. The Mirror Word is a poetically literal paraphrase packed with dunamis power spoken directly from the heart of the Father that reveals Jesus as what God has believed about mankind before the world began. --Jeff Pate, author of By the Grace of God I Am What I Am.
