About the Author
First published in 1979, the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION has become the world's best-selling contemporary Bible translation. More than 100 scholars worked for fifteen 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.
Sponsored by the International Bible Society who receive a portion of the purchase price of every NIV Bible to help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

i also needed a decent size font as can no longer read small print comfortably.
this Bible fits those criteria, the leather bounding makes it v durable but easy to use, the font is a great size & also as it lays flat it's very easy to read.
i was initially not too keen on Christ's words being in red, not as easy to read i thought, but actually it's really not bad at all & i can read it easily!
i like the book mark ribbon (though always think more than one would be useful!).
i've given 5 stars because the 2 niggles i have are minor! i'd really have found a brief introduction to each book helpful (as i have in another Bible) & ideally i'd like all print in black & not some in red, but these are so minor i've still given 5 stars!
this Bible is packaged so nicely & has a presentation plate it'd make an ideal gift. i ordered the brown/ tan 2 tone leather & it has gilt edging so it's beautiful to look at too.
it's also a new edition (march 2011) so totally up to date & the NIV is such a straight forward translation to understand.
This is a newly revised (2011) version, updating the language from the previous NIV revision of 1984, and also building on the TNIV (2005). It is not yet available in British English (I assume), but you only occasionally notice the slight differences in vocabulary and spelling. Having used the NIV for many years (as well as a range of other versions), I was surprised by how often revisions in the translation occur. Much of this arises from updated use of gender-neutral language, so that "the man who loves God is known by God" becomes "whoever loves God is known by God". 30 years ago "man" was accepted as referring to "a person" in certain contexts, but that is no longer the case -- chairman has become chairperson, and so on. As far as I can see, the language of the 2011 NIV has hit a good balance. There will no doubt be places where I don't like their choice of words, but no translation is perfect!
All in all, a very good buy at under £16, and it is hard to see anyone being disappointed in purchasing this edition. The only disadvantage would be in being out of step with users of previous versions of the NIV, especially where a church has already established the NIV as a version for use in services.Thinline Bible-NIV
