In the Mail: @Zondervan’s “The Greek-English New Testament: UBS 5th Revised Edition and NIV”

This really is a beautiful bible and matches up quite well to the other Greek bibles/helps. &lt;br /&gt;<br /> The most widely used edition of the Greek New Testament and the most widely read contemporary English Bible translation are now available in one volume! Featuring the UBS 5 critical text (with the full apparatus) and the New International Version, this reference volume stands to become the standard edition for translators and students. Like the 28th edition of the Nestle-Aland Novum Testamentum Graece, the UBS 5 text is the leading edition of the original text of the New Testament. It


Continuing to Celebrate the NIV’s 50th!

There are somethings you might like to read about the NIV at 50 years. 50 years old. Can you imagine that? I am but 37… that means the NIV is only 13 years older than I am! And yes, there is a new one: Having two editions in print of what was essentially one Bible translation was intended to satisfy the concerns of those who did not understand or accept that masculine nouns and pronouns were no longer universally understood as referring to both men and women as well as those who wanted a translation that accurately reflected contemporary


a NIV Zondervan Study Bible, edited by D.A. Carson

Remember when I shared this celebration about the 50th anniversary of the NIV? The NIV Zondervan Study Bible, featuring Dr. D. A. Carson as general editor, is built on the truth of Scripture and centered on the gospel message. An ambitious and comprehensive undertaking, Dr. Carson, with committee members Dr. T. Desmond Alexander, Dr. Richard S. Hess, Dr. Douglas J. Moo, and Dr. Andrew David Naselli, along with a team of over 60 contributors from a wide range of evangelical denominations and perspectives, crafted all-new study notes and other study tools to present a biblical theology of God’s special


celebrating 50 years of the NIV (with free stuff)

In 1965, the Committee on Bible Translation, took on the most massive translation project of modern times: to prepare a contemporary English translation of the Bible from the best available original manuscripts. Fifty years later, the New International Version remains the global standard as an accurate, beautiful, trustworthy translation of God’s Word. It’s faithful to the original text, rooted in everyday English, and perfect for biblical study—that’s what has made it the bestselling modern-English translation in the world.

More from the Zondervan and Thomas Nelson merger – The MacArthur NIV Study Bible

You know how I feel about Christian publishing houses as ruled by Murdoch, especially when you consider that 50% of the Christian publishing market is essentially controlled by Murdoch. Anyway… It seems that John MacArther will not added his notes to an NIV Study Bible: The project has been in the discussion and planning phase for more than a year now, said Chip Brown, Zondervan’s senior vice-president and publisher of bibles. Under the deal, Zondervan will license the NIV translation to Thomas Nelson, which will publish the bible, expected to be released in fall 2013. How Zondervan struck a


Southern Baptists Decry NIV 2011

As an ardent supporter of the NLT – I’ve never read the NIV 2011. No need too. But this was a bit surprising. In a surprising and dramatic move moments ago, messengers voted first to consider a resolution highly critical of the TNIV 2011 and then passed the resolution nearly unanimously. The resolution came from the floor — introduced by messenger Tim Overton — and not from the Resolutions Committee. Overturn’s appeal for messengers to consider the resolution passed by at least a 2-to-1 margin, and the resolution itself got only a handful of opposing votes. The Resolutions Committee

Leave a comment here letting me know that you’ve posted the link and which version you would prefer. Okay, so that’s the boring stuff. Now its time to get creative. You can choose one or both of these tasks. If you don’t have a blog simply leave a comment
