Description

The Mirror Bible is a paraphrase translation from the original Greek text of the bible. The Mirror brings a fresh perspective to the table and while the detailed shades of every Greek word has been closely studied, it has been done with the person of Jesus Christ Himself and His finished work as the proper interpretative lens. Christ is the ultimate text and each page of The Mirror drips with grace as we discover our own identity restored in the very image of the invisible God. The Mirror app gives readers a interactive way to consume the paraphrase with features such as bookmarking, writing margin notes, highlighting and sharing on social networks. Please note: The Mirror is an active and ongoing translation and some chapters and verses are not yet complete. However, app users will get periodic updates of freshly translated texts!

    We are all prodigals, but after reading The Mirror you will be running home to jump into your Daddy’s arms. Francios digs deep to uncover the true meaning of the original text which will have you glued to every Word. The Father’s love for His children through your long lost Brother, Jesus, becomes so apparent that you will weep with joy. It’s only the Truth that sets us free and it’s only found in the Christ. He is perfect theology because He only did what He saw the Father doing and only said what He heard Him saying. Got questions? Look no further than Christ and read the entire Bible through Him and what He did or didn’t do. Reading and feasting upon this translation has awakened my inner man to the newness of Life in Jesus. My relationship has risen to a whole new level of knowing God. The more I read the more free I became. I’ve noticed when I minister to others how freely His Life flows from me into them now. If we don’t know who we are we can’t release what we have. You will find your true identity while reading The Mirror as if standing and gazing in the mirror.

    The most life giving translation you'll ever read! The first book I read from this translation was Romans, WOW! If you'll take the journey, you're eyes will be opened like never before. Thanks Francois for this labor of love!

    This study and translation has changed my walk with God. I love the new revelation it gives me. However the app itself has some aesthetic issues. The commentary is distracting where it's places right now. Sometimes I just want to read the word and I don't like having to scroll all the way past the commentary to get to the word. Also the way the commentary is divided is confusing. The spelling and grammatical errors are also very distracting!

    This review is about the app itself. It needs work. It's actually a little frustrating to use. It routinely freezes up, not allowing you to scroll up or down without quitting the app altogether and relaunching. I'm using iPad Pro. Also, the commentary is right in the middle of each verse, making it difficult to simply read the scriptures. Also the fonts used to separate scripture from commentary is often confusing, making the reading experience a bit frustrating. I suggest separating the commentary from scripture but make it easily accessible as a side bar or at the bottom. It's a nice start as an app but definitely needs some work.

    This translation of the Bible has so much life on it. Even the commentary, which I'm usually not fond of, I do enjoy with this one because is very life bringing. It has a revelational value to it. However, the app itself, text formatting, as well as the spelling/grammar could need some help. If the below things were fixed, I would give it a five star rating. Perhaps it's just a personal preference, but I'd say that the commentary would be off not in bold face. In Romans 8, and maybe other places as well, you have parts of it that are in italics and parts that are not - but not consistently. Why not just put all the commentary in italics, and the regular text in regular formatting? Also, with night mode, and the highlights do not always show up, if I had previously highlighted it. As far as the share button, I have to copy and paste the verse first, otherwise it just shares The Mirror website.
  • Amazing translation

    I LOVE this translation. It is transforming my heart and mind and opening my eyes to the heart of God in whole new ways! However, I do have a complaint about the app. I love reading the commentary, but I do wish there was an option to turn the commentary off or at least put it at the bottom of each page. I find that sometimes I just want to read the Word without the commentary in the text. I'd love an option to turn it off! Also, I find that there are tons of different fonts/font sizes throughout the chapters. I know the bold font is the commentary, but sometimes there's other strange fonts and I don't know what they are for. I'd like it to all be the same font OR give an explanation on the app as to why there are different fonts (if they are for a purpose).

    Francois has finished the book of John but I can't seem to get the updated version. I delete the current version ad download again but I get the same version not a revised one with the rest of John. Help!
