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 New NIV Popular Bible 15 Jun 2011
By C. Wood
Format:Hardcover
This new version of the NIV Bible has a lot to commend it. It is well laid out in an easy-to-read font with the chapters laid out in headed sections. Ideal if you don't want to lose your place when you are reading in church! The summary of each book at the back is useful background knowledge and helps to put each book in context. It also lies flat wherever you open it. The help sections at the front are a quick and easy way to find something if you have forgotten where to look for it. An excellent buy.

1.0 out of 5 stars NIV ceases to be accurate 19 July 2011
Format:Hardcover
I was disappointed in the updated NIV. There a number of examples of where accurate translation has been abandoned in favour of 'Politically Correct' substitutes. Example; Gratuitous change from Father to Parent - example Proverbs 15:5; 1984 NIV A fool spurns his father's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence - 2011 NIV A fool spurns a parent's discipline, but whoever heeds correction shows prudence. The Hebrew text has 'ab' which means father, not parent. Fifteen other verses in the 2011 NIV make a similar change. Such a paraphrase seeks to eliminate father when that is the precise meaning of the Hebrew text! Yes English does change (not radically) but Father is still very much in current use - and understood. There are loads of changes in this direction. Given this I cannot trust this bible to convey God's message, when passages are deliberately mistranslated.
