The New International Version of the Bible (NIV) was commissioned by the International Bible Society (IBS). Its mission is to reach out to people around the world with a faithful translation of God's word. The NIV was created by the Committee on Bible Translation (CBT), which is an independent body made up of renowned biblical linguists and scholars
The translators of the New International Version of the Bible were chosen from a wide range of denominations and various countries to form the Committee on Bible Translation, a working group overseen by the International Bible Society.
'A wonderful balance of accuracy and accessibility.'
'I warmly commend it.'
'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
