The NIV translation of the Bible in renowned for being both readable and reliable. This version of the NIV popular Bible is ideal for personal reading, public teaching and group study.
The 2011 NIV translation's goal is to bring the translation into line with both contemporary biblical scholarship and with changes in English language idiom and usage. The 1984 NIV update included various corrections and revisions to the original NIV text. In 2005 a revision process was completed that resulted in the separately published Today's New International Version. The 2011 NIV update builds on both the original NIV and TNIV.
95% of the text of the new updated 2011 edition of the NIV is exactly the same as the 1984 text that it replaces. The majority of changes involve minor matters of vocabulary, sentence structure and punctuation. Some of the other change reflect advances in biblical scholarship over the last three decades. Reasons for the change in text in the new NIV 2011 edition fall into three categories:
1. Changes in English.
2. Progress in Scholarship.
3. Concern for Clarity.
"This newly updated edition of the NIV retains its commitment to accuracy even while remaining accessible to the widest audience possible." -- Philip Yancey.
