Can you really judge a book by its covers? Wisdom says you can’t, but I think experience says different. For instance, if a writer, publisher or book seller can’t be bothered to see that a book has a decent cover – attractive and strong enough to survive the anticipated use, then you can be pretty sure they’ve not much respect for what’s inside. And if they don’t care about their book, why should you? The best books always get the best covers. Rare and valuable books get expensive though sombre bindings. Children's books have durable and colourful backings and books that will be in the recycling bin in a year or less – such as telephone directories and mass fiction novels, have equally throw-away covers.
So what is it with Bibles? While the contents of all Bibles are more to less the same, (a statement sure to cause controversy, but there you are), the quality and design of the covers is hugely variable. From thin paper to the most exquisite leather, and from plain black to the height of modern design, the Bible is about the only kind of book that comes with its own from zip fasten. Not so much a reflection of the contents, the kind of covers wrapped around a Bible reflect the kind of use it’s expected to get. Bibles destined never to leave home might have heavier more luxurious bindings. Bibles for ‘on the move’ will be smaller with lighter, softer, more flexible covers. Bibles for carrying to church are often the most ostentatious… for some reason.
What makes Bibles unique, is not what the covers say about the content, but what they’re taken to say about the owner. Don’t believe me? Just take a look through the Bible catalogue on Eden’s pages and see how many of those designs and covers you’d be happy to be seen with. Not many, I’m sure; which is no bad thing. It means the creators of Bible covers are taking their job seriously and trying to find and make the design that’s right for you. And you, of course, are unique. Now you could take a singularly cynical stance and say that’s just marketing. That all they’ve done is make Bible into a disposable fashion item. Think so? How many people do you know who’ve ever thrown a Bible away into the recycling skip? Somewhere between few and none.
Like dogs and diamonds, Bibles are for ever. But you’re tastes and characteristics aren’t. So what you want your Bible cover to say about you and, more importantly, what you want the cover to say about your relationship with God’s word is always developing. This NIV, in smooth peach fabric with gold foil stars, tells your friends and family who you are, and what you’re relationship with it is like. It says you’re not afraid or ashamed to be identified with a God whose word looks and feels like this. It says: “This is the kind of God I know… wouldn’t you like to know him too?” So there you are, you really can judge a book by its cover.
The NIV (New International Version) is probably the best selling and most widely read modern English language translation of the Bible. You’ll find it in most protestant tradition churches in the UK. The NIV uses modern English words and language in the way you would use them in everyday speech and conversation. The text is easy to read and understand requiring no advanced reading skills or expert knowledge of the language.
Constantly reviewed and revised, the language of the NIV is clear and modern yet authentic and true to the Bible’s original written sources. Continuing research maintains the accuracy of the translation to assure the closest following of the Bible’s original message and meaning. That’s why in 2011 a new and fully updated translation was launched. This reflects the latest trends in modern usage, while still keeping the meaning clear and unambiguous.
It was the rapidly changing social orders of the 1960s that highlighted the need for a new Bible translation that spoke the language of the modern world. Commissioned by a broad alliance of Christian churches and scholars, the Committee on Bible Translation (CBT) set out to create a truly modern English translation. The NIV creators wanted their readers to experience the Bible’s original form, structure and meaning in modern readable English. The latest (2011) edition reflects the committee’s continuing quest for accuracy, clarity and beauty.
From the beginning, the translators wanted the NIV be non-denominational and acceptable in theology and doctrine to a broad range of churches and traditions. While it doesn’t contain the addition books usually found int Catholic tradition Bibles, it is a measure of the NIV’s acceptability that it’s widely used in churches, schools, small groups and for individual study and devotion. The NIV’s modern English – and British English in selected editions, makes it ideal for even the most casual reader, while its accuracy and authenticity make it a reliable choice for the serious Bible student and scholar. For this reason, any popular personal development programmes, including the highly successful Alpha Courses, use the NIV translation as their principle source of Bible material.
Many NIV editions are supplemented with reading plans, maps, a dictionary and helpful illustrations. The latest editions (like this one) are presented in covers just as appealing and accessible as the modern English inside. As well as the more traditionally bound editions there’s a range of contemporary designs (such as the gold stars on peach cloth) and bindings attractive to young adults, teenagers and children.
Special editions created for baptisms, weddings and for all-occasion gifts make an NIV Bible as delightful a present to give as to receive. Practical editions designed for everyday use and light weight paperbacks feature together with economically priced whole Bibles and selections for groups and for evangelical campaign give-aways. An important feature of the NIV translation is the vast range of supporting study and interpretive material provided to enhance the reader’s individual or group experience. Study Bibles with a daily reading plan, guides to read the whole Bible in a year or follow specific themes guarantee that the NIV will remain accessible spiritual resource for many more years to come.
