Language never stays the same. New words are introduced and old ones change their meaning. Different social groups and cultures use different words in different ways. As society becomes more diverse and more demanding so more and different demands are made on the publication of God’s word in print.
Add to that the current pace of new discoveries and deeper understanding of the ancient texts. It’s clear there’ll always be a need for new translations and new editions of the world’s most influential book if that influence is to be maintained and its relevance assured.
New International Version (NIV) Bible 2011
Perhaps the biggest new Bible event of 2011 is imminent release of the new updated New International Version (NIV) available from Eden.co.uk in November.
The new edition is a significant update on the 1984 issue and the outcome of research into current English usage as well as the latest discoveries of Biblical scholarship.
As with all NIV editions, readers will be supported with a comprehensive range of study aids, daily reading guides, dictionaries and other resources. Special creations for baptisms, weddings, youth, children and all-occasion gifts along with light weight paperbacks and economically priced packs of whole Bibles and selections will complete the new edition’s near universal appeal.
