Praise for the NIV from Pastors, Scholars and Ministry Leaders

  • The NIV is a gift to the church. Its clear, readable English is accurate to the original languages, communicating the Bible’s rich message in a way that will reach people of all ages, education, and spiritual maturity. –Tremper Longman III, Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College

  • In my estimation, the NIV provides the best translation to the original text while using a language style that is easier for contemporary folks to understand. I have started using the new NIV with the same confidence I have had all these years. I believe with all my heart that this translation will fill the lives of people today with great joy. –Randy Frazee, Senior Minister, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio 
Author of The Heart of the Story

  • The New International Version follows in the same tradition as the King James Version, although it is tailor-made for the way English is spoken around the world today. The NIV is the most popular translation today because it remains faithful to the original Scriptures while being easy for people to understand. –Charles Stanley, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church in Atlanta 
Founder, InTouch Ministries
