Product Description

Product Description

With over 400 million Bibles in print, the New International Version is the world's most popular modern English Bible. It is renowned for its combination of reliability and readability. Fully revised and updated for the first time in 25 years, the NIV is ideal for personal reading, public teaching and group study.

British Text:
This edition uses British spelling, punctuation and grammar to allow the Bible to be read more naturally.

More about the translation:
This revised and updated edition of the NIV includes three main types of change, taking into account changes in the way we use language day to day; advances in biblical scholarship and understanding; and the need to ensure that gender accurate language is used, to faithfully reflect whether men and women are referred to in each instance. The translators have carefully assessed a huge body of scholarship, as well as inviting peer submissions, in order to review every word of the existing NIV to ensure it remains as clear and relevant today as when it was first published.

Royalties from all sales of the NIV Bible help Biblica, formerly the International Bible Society, in their work of translating and distributing Bibles around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars No more 'sayeths', 'doeths' and 'heareths', etc. 15 Sep 2011
By Steve
Format:Kindle Edition
Was horrified at first when I pressed MENU then GO TO and there was no TABLE OF CONTENTS then, deep joy, I found the 'FINDER'. It really is very easy. Whatever verse or passage you are reading, the 'FINDER' link is always on the page, so when the preacher's firing references at you really quickly, you can keep up. I'm really pleased with this version, it was well worth the wait. I think with most kindle books you can download a sample for free and try out the navigation. Thank you NIV ebook publishers, Job Well Done :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting better 15 Sep 2011
By Mr Ed D
Format:Kindle Edition
I have just purchased the Kindle edition of the New International Version (NIV) Bible and I must say I'm impressed. Don't get me wrong as far a ebooks go its not perfect. You still can't search BOOK:ChapterVerse, eg, John3:16. What you have now though is finder links and chapter links within each book. There is NO table of contents. Pressing right or lift on the d-pad takes you forward or back a book making jumping around the 66 books easier.

When you first enter the book you are presented with "Welcome to the Bible [Finder]", followed with the intro blurb to the NIV. Clicking on [Finder] takes you to a page containing all the links to all the books. They are displayed horizontally and not vertically like in other ebook bibles. Below the book links are further links to "Welcome to the Bible", "The Bible at a Glance", "People of the Bible", Well-known events in the Bible", "Well-known events in the Life of Jesus", Selected parables of Jesus", "Selected miracles of Jesus", "Help and Guidance", "Reading Guide", "About the NIV (Preface)", "Tables of weights and measures", "Bible Guide" and "Copyright Information"

When you select a book to read there is a [Bookname][<][>][Finder] Link above every chapter.

Overall for the price I think this is a great Bible ebook. It has solved some of the navigation issues that are prevalent in ebook bibles and I only hope that as publisher get use to producing ebooks of this nature that they improve on the getting-around-it bit.

Enjoy and God Bless!

3.0 out of 5 stars Different NIV 10 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Most of the comments from previous reviews are relevant but, if you're used to the `traditional' NIV as used in churches in Britain, be prepared for some surprises with this Kindle version.

This translation is a later version, which seems to have been paraphrased to some extent. For example, Mark 1:17 in the `traditional' translation says, "Come, follow me, Jesus said, and I will make you fishers of men." The `new' translation says, "Come, follow me," Jesus said, "and I will send you out to fish for people."

In a group session, which included a biblical Greek expert, we discovered that the `people' option was the more correct but `make' was more correct than `send'. `Make' denotes an element of training while `send' simply means to dispatch, trained or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very handy. 17 Sep 2011
By Xandra
Format:Kindle Edition
NIV Bible eBook (Bible Niv Internationl Version)

This is proving to be very handy indeed. The navigation around the books of the Bible and the texts is greatly aided by the 'finder' facility. As a regular reader of the Bible, it's tremendous to be able to carry it around in the Kindle with the text enlargement facility.

4.0 out of 5 stars The best Bible for the Kindle 26 Dec 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was a bit wary of buying a Bible for my Kindle because of navigation issues, but this is really easy to navigate - the only way it could really be better is actually being able to flick through the pages. For anyone who wants a Bible for their Kindle, get this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Hodder and Amazon! 18 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been using the 2011 revision of the New International Version since last November via the web, and have had printed copies since May 2011. It is a wonderful translation, treading a good line between readability and keeping true to the original language. Now it's on my Kindle and can go with me absolutely everywhere and be read anywhere. My only gripe with e-books of Bible versions is that few have good navigation, though the finder feature in this does help. Many books we read cover to cover, but the Bible isn't one of those. Most of the time we want to navigate to a particular chapter and verse of a particular book.

The Kindle is a great asset, I have over 100 books on mine - most are theology books and Bible commentaries to support my theology studies and my training as a Methodist Local Preacher. Its usefulness cannot be understated. My bookshelves were full and overflowing, but my Kindle has prevented the crisis worsening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent edition but slightly flawed Search 26 Sep 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For the most part I'm really pleased with this version. I'm delighted that the UK are finally allowed to have the NIV on Kindle. The Finder is good with the contents well laid out to minimize page turns and there are handy links at the end of each chapter. There are a few excellent extras. The Help and Guidance section gives you Bible verses to help with problems you may experience e.g. When friends let you down.

My only criticism (and the reason for dropping a star) is that, like many Kindle versions of the Bible, the layout hasn't taken into account the Kindle's Find ability being limited to Whole Words; the verse numbers have been put immediately in front of the first word in the verse and this means you won't be able to find e.g. Matthew 11:29 by typing in 'Take my yoke' because the word 'Take' is read by the Kindle as 29Take.

About the only Kindle Bibles that have managed to avoid this while still allowing good navigation is the KJV Easy Navigate Book by Hendrickson Bibles and the wonderful Bibles by Osnova (unfortunately, Osnova doesn't do the NIV yet)
