About the NIV

The New International Version of the Bible is one of the most popular translations in history, and the official Bible translation of many churches around the world. The NIV attempts to balance word-for-word with phrase-by-phrase translations, providing a mix of readability and staying true to the original Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew languages. Some people find the language too simple, though, sacrificing accuracy for more contemporary English. It is ideal for study, preaching and reading. Many good Bibles and study resources are available for the NIV.
