TNIV

I was just going to get around to finally buying a copy of the Today’s New International Version of the Bible and now I hear that Zondervan is going to discontinue it, after a vitriolic campaign against it by the usual suspects of the American evangelical right. It’s times like these that I despair about evangelicals. Great post about it here.

  1. As some of the comments on the original post raise, it will be interesting to see what the NIV 2011 will look like.

    I found it interesting when doing a translation comparison of a number of ‘difficult’ passages a few years ago that the ‘conservative’ NIV actually came out on the left of the ‘liberal’ NRSV. …Interesting in that I was studying in a ‘liberal’ institution where the NIV was less acceptable than a copy of the Qur’an.
