Special Order
The book of Luke is a glorious gospel and perhaps the most compassionate, love-filled account of the life, humanity, and ministry of Jesus. Also known as the Mercy Gospel, the Gospel of Luke offers rich details of Jesus' love of children and the forsaken. It further shares Jesus' teachings on prayer, forgiveness, and our calling as Christians to demonstrate mercy and grace to others.

The book of Acts details the ascension of Jesus, the birth of the church, and the early years of the expansion of God's kingdom on earth. Paul's three missionary journeys are also explored, illustrating the spread of the gospel, the addition of new believers, miraculous answers to prayer, signs and wonders, and deliverance.

Revealed before our eyes in these two books of the Bible is the glorious man, Jesus Christ, and his undying love for us. This inspired account of church history awakens our souls and grants us courage to be witnesses for Christ.

"Not one promise from God is empty of power. Nothing is impossible with God "
Luke 1:37
BRIAN SIMMONS is the lead translator of The Passion Translation(R). 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. After a dramatic conversion to Christ in 1971, Brian and his wife, Candice, answered the call of God to leave everything behind and become missionaries to unreached peoples. Taking their three children to the tropical rain forest of Central America, they planted churches for many years with the Paya-Kuna people group. Simmons established leadership for the churches that Jesus birthed, and, having been trained in linguistics and Bible translation principles, assisted with the translation of the Paya-Kuna New Testament. After their ministry overseas, Brian and Candice returned to North America, where Brian began to passionately work toward helping people encounter the risen Christ. He and his wife planted numerous ministries, including a dynamic church in New England (U.S.). They also established Passion & Fire Ministries, under which they travel full time as Bible teachers in service of local churches throughout the world. Brian is the author of numerous books, Bible studies, and devotionals that help readers encounter God's heart and experience a deeper revelation of God as our Bridegroom King, including Throne Room Prayer, The Sacred Journey, Prayers on Fire, The Divine Romance, and The Vision. Brian and Candice have been married since 1971 and have three children as well as precious grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Their passion is to live as loving examples of a spiritual father and mother to this generation.
