5 Stars Out Of 5
January 26, 2015
This Bible is well put-together. I am partial to "thin-line" editions of the Bible, anyway. Also, the updated NIV-2011 is much improved over the 1984 edition. It removes much of the taint of Calvinism, and makes a great companion to study along side some of the more literal versions. No translation is perfect; but overall, this one isn't bad! One final note on the "gender neutral" aspects. This translation seems more balanced than other attempts at gender neutrality. The simple fact is, sometimes "man" just means "man!" Other times, it means "mankind." Clearly there is room for some latitude of translation on "gender" depending on context.
