I think, this translataion is the best in the midst of the Christian translations! It uses very simple and understandable language, so a children can follow its text and learn the Scriptures! I have studied Shaul's letter to the Romans, and seen, that the chapters 9, 10,11 that are very important from Messianic Jewish perspective, far better than the most Christian translations.
I keep its disadvantage, that it - like any other translation - is making a very "Christian" one from the Good News, instead of giving back its essential Jewishness and place it and Yeshua our Messiah to His original context.
I've had this Bible since 5/12/2011, but i just now started reading it. I didn't think i would like the NIV but i like it alot. As far as the quality of this Bible, its good for its price. The print size is pretty small, but its readable. Overall, this is a wonderful Bible and i would highly recommend it to you!!! Blessings.
Periodically I buy NIV Bibles; I facilatate Beth Moore Bible studies and she uses the NIV and our church uses the KJV. Thank you for having these at a reasonable price. CBD has been there for me for many years. Thank You!
