About the Author
DR. BRIAN SIMMONS is known as a passionate lover of God. After a dramatic conversion to Christ, Brian knew that God was calling him to go to the unreached people of the world and present the gospel of God’s grace to all who would listen. With his wife Candice and their three children, he spent nearly eight years in the tropical rain forest of the Darien Province of Panama as a church planter, translator, and consultant. Brian was involved in the Paya-Kuna New Testament translation project and studied linguistics and Bible translation principles with New Tribes Mission. Brian is now working to complete a new translation of the Scripture from the ancient Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek.

Anyway, the only thing that I wish Brian would have done is to translate more passages from the Aramaic, instead of the Greek, or Hebrew Matthew (for the book of Matthew). In other words, he wouldn't translate using the Aramaic, but he put the Aramaic in the notes. Many, many times I loved the Aramaic - and I wondered why he didn't use it in the translation? I'm sure he had his reasons. This is a little thing, and how I am glad he gave the Aramaic in the notes!
My wife and I have fallen in love with this translation, and my wife loves the small books/booklets in this collection. I, on the other hand, can't wait until he gets the whole New Testament done, and comes out with a leather bound N.T., and then the whole Bible. I hope that everyone will remember that all our Bibles, no matter what version we read, is a translation. My conclusion is that the English translations based upon the Greek alone are not the best, and that the translations from the Aramaic are more accurate, and understandable. Admittedly, Brian draws from both. Enjoy the Word of God in understandable English!
The only practical drawback that I've noted: I ordered the set, and when I was one chapter into the book of John, pages started falling out and the cover fell off of the binding. I may have to get it rebound, because I know I'll be reading it often.
