This NIRV Bible far exceeds my expectations!
I serve adults with disabilities who often have limited reading skills. Often, they could only read a children's bible with silly pictures on it. This bible looks and feels like any other adult bible.
The NIRV translation makes the bible easier to read but has the full meat of the meaning. Although I can understand theologically challenging versions, the NIRV has become a real treasure to me. I use quotes from it for notes of encouragement on Facebook! Even unbelievers are touched by the simplicity.
The NIRV is also perfect for readers who are deaf or have English as a second language. I bought a case of paperback NIRV to give to the deaf members of our church. One lady held the NIRV to her chest, hugging it like a doll, and signed, "I never had a bible I could understand. I love it!"
