This bible was everything I was looking for. It is an excellent bible for it's price. It's not a high quality bible, but it's an average looking bible. I personally got it for the reason of collecting translations of the Holy Scriptures, and what an awesome translation this one was, with it's updated text. I'm probably going to get more for the sake of sharing the gospel. Overall I highly recommend buying this if your looking for a normal looking NIV Bible.
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.
