I'm looking for a replacement to my previous NIV which used inclusive language so wonder if this one does?

Hi Lorna.
This Bible is not the original Inclusive Language version (1997) that was discontinued, but it does have some of the gender revisions that make it more inclusive.
There are roughly 160 passages that, for example, change 'man' or 'mankind' for 'humanity'.
Whilst there is a large amount of contention over the changes, the NIV (2011) is a much more Inclusive edition that its 1984 predecessor.
I hope that help you in what you were looking for.
Thank you for using the Q&A Forum.
Aaron
