Review quote

'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 '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 warmly commend it.' -- John Stottshow more
