Published over 21 years ago, the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION has become the world's best-selling contemporary Bible translation. More than 100 scholars worked for 15 years to complete it. Their main concern is that the NIV is faithful to the original languages while producing a clear, beautifully written and dignified translation suitable for private and public use.Review:
'A magnificent edition with a detailed and carefully constructed reference system and a concise but comprehensive concordance ... an excellent basis for detailed biblical study.' -- Professor I H Marshall 'An invaluable resource for the serious student of the Bible.' -- Richard J Foster 'Over the past 21 years the NIV has established itself as one of the most widely used and appreciated modern versions of the Bible. The quality of its translation richly deserves this wide recognition and I hope that it will continue to be of equal benefit to many more people in the years to come.' -- The Most Revd and Right Honourable The Lord Archbi 'we [Westminster Chapel] have been using it [the NIV] for about fifteen years, and we are extremely happy that it is part of our regular ministry.' -- Dr R. T. KENDALL 'I am frequently asked to read a lesson during a church service, and the NIV seems almost invariably to be the version to be used. Its strength, clarity and dignity strike me each time I read aloud.' -- SIR CLIFF RICHARD, OBE
