About this Translation

I’ve found the best source of information about the NIV Bible was in the preface of this Bible.

The goal of the NIV is to enable English-speaking people from around the world to read and hear God’s eternal word in their own language. Our work as translators is motivated by our conviction that the Bible is God’s word in written form. We believe that the Bible contains the divine answer to the deepest needs of humanity, sheds unique light on our path in a dark world and sets forth the way to our eternal well-being. Out of these deep convictions, we have sought to recreate as far as possible the accessibility for millions of English speakers around the world. We have prioritized accuracy, clarity and literary quality with the goal of creating a translation suitable for public and privet reading, evangelism, teaching, preaching, memorizing, and liturgical use. We also have sought to preserve a measure of continuity with the long tradition of translating the Scriptures into English.” (Quoted from the preface of this Bible.)

My Personal Opinion:

Personally I love the layout of this Bible and the way it lays flat. I find the study notes in this Bible very interesting, and very helpful for anyone who wants to get in-depth while studying the Bible. The size of this Bible makes it very easy to carry with you to church,work,school, or where ever you may like to carry it. I find the NIV Bible is a great translation to use when trying to study the Bible, because it is much easier to read and understand. I highly recommend this Bible to anyone who loves reading God’s word.
