Is it safe to read The Passion Translation? How about the NIV or any other Bible translations? Fear NOT the translations! I have been in your shoes and I’d like to offer some helpful insights on this topic. You do not have to live in fear of deception. You can trust God to help you with that. In the video, I mentioned a book that may be of help to you. It’s called “Know How We Got Our Bible” and it’s written by Ryan Reeves, a seminary professor who wrote an easy to read book. It’s great read for anyone. No, you don’t need a college degree.
