Review quote

'Undoubtedly the most readable accurate translation of the Bible currently in English.' -- The Rev. Dr Michael Green, Adiver in Evangelism to 'What is most satisfying about it [the NIV] is its combination of fidelity to the original text with felicitous English language.' -- John Stott, Rector Emeritus of All Souls Church, L 'Over the past 21 years the NIV has established itself as one of the most widely used and appreciated modern versions of the Bible. The quality of its translation richly deserves this wide recognition and I hope that it will continue to be of equal benefit to many more people in the years to come.' -- The Most Revd and Right Honourable The Lord Archbi "I take my mobile phone and my pocket edition of the NIV Bible almost everywhere. I'd be lost without them." -- Steve Chalke, Founding Director, Oasis Trustshow more
