Product Description

Review

'I went over every word of the NIV text in depth. I found it to be a wonderful balance of accuracy and accessibility, and I've used the NIV as my standard text ever since.' (Philip Yancey )

'I warmly commend it.' (John Stott )

'The NIV has the clarity of our modern language without losing any of the poetry; it is accessible but avoids being over-familiar.' (David Suchet )

'The NIV is excellent. It uses clear, uncluttered, modern English, yet it seeks to convey the meaning of the original as clearly as possible ...No translation is perfect: but this one ranks with the best.' (Don Carson )

'The Bible is the only reliable data we have about God. The NIV is a trusted Bible translation - it communicates clearly and relevantly to our world today.
I would encourage every Christian and every seeker to read this reliable translation daily and thoughtfully.' (Canon J. John )

I'm not going to debate the contents of this book, suffice it to say the New International Version is easy to read and in fairly clear language. I chose this version as I wanted one with a cover that was different to my boyfriend's so we did not get them muddled. It is a lovely deep purple, satin finish hardback. The text inside seems slightly larger than normal and slightly wider spaced, making this an easier to read copy. There is plenty of space in the margin to mark down prayers or thoughts as you read through. I progressed to this one from the Youth Bible, and while this one isn't as fun, it is still an easy access manual for life with all the vital info packed in there.

Very good Bible 2 Jun 2013
By Sam Amenta - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the 1984 NIV. The layout and the font is perfect. I can read it comfortable without my glasses. It's a good size. The cross reference in the center of the page is not distracting. There is a small concordance and a few reading suggestions, but other than that, it is pretty bare bones... ie no study notes, personal applications, etc.
