Have You Ever Wondered How the New International Version (NIV) Bible Came to Be?
It started in the early 1500s with a humble man and a huge conviction: to translate the Bible into the English language. Standing on the shoulders of William Tyndale, the Committee on Bible Translation (CBT) was commissioned in August of 1965 “to prepare a contemporary English translation of the Bible.” Thirteen years later, the complete text of the New International Version was made available, and still remains today’s most widely-read modern-English translation.
Now, after fifty years, the world celebrates one of the great Bible revivals. A translation that captures the original meaning of Scripture in common, everyday language. A translation that is true to God’s Word and has changed how people read, experience, and live out the Bible ever since.
Simple. Clear. Trustworthy. Beautiful. The NIV.
