Author information

Sponsored by the International Bible Society and first published in 1979, the NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION has become the world's bestselling contemporary Bible translation. More than 100 scholars worked for 15 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. International Bible Society has three key objectives: translation of the Scriptures into other languages; to publication and distribution of the Scriptures, contextualised to particular people, problems and issues; outreach to non-Christians.show more
