NIV Bibles & Resources

celebrating 50 years of the NIV

Engineer and inventor Howard Long was a passionate man, known by friends and colleagues for his deep Christian faith. While struggling to share the Gospel message of the centuries-old KJV translation with contemporary English speakers, he set out to develop a new translation for the everyman. After a decade of development, in 1965 the NIV translation was born. By 1978, both the Old and New Testaments had been translated into the new, easy-to-grasp New International Version, setting the standard for readability and comprehension. Today the NIV is the most widely read Bible in contemporary English, spreading the gospel of Jesus to generations of believers past, present, and future.

Praise for the NIV Zondervan Study Bible

"This NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a tremendous tool for informed Bible reading and study. The notes are written by the best assembly I've seen of faithful, international scholars. I highly recommend this publication."

Tim Keller,
Redeemer Presbyterian Church, New York City


"The NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a magnificent achievement. The illustrations are stunning and the maps are expertly done. Most important, the content in both the articles and the commentary is superb. Every Bible reader and person in ministry should turn to it often for help."

Dr. Thomas R. Schreiner,
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


"This is a Study Bible like no other! Hess and Alexander on Genesis. Waltke on Proverbs. Carson on the Gospel of John. Moo on Romans. Introductions. Notes explaining "what this means" and tracking the Bible's own developing themes. About 30 essays on major biblical themes. Historical guides. A distinctive biblical-theological approach. Deeply informed throughout. What more could we want? It's not every study Bible that brings a layman-accessible seminary education with it, but this one surely does. It does not take a prophet to predict that many who do not already use the NIV will begin using it now just because of the learning this Study Bible delivers."

Fred Zaspel,
Calvary Baptist Seminary, Reformed Baptist Church of Franconia, PA


"With brand-new notes and maps, pictures of the land and artifacts, and more thorough introductions to the biblical books, this interactive Bible will serve a new generation of serious Bible readers in a whole new way. I can't wait to get mine."

Michael Wittmer,
Grand Rapids Theological Seminary


"Written by a noted and trustworthy team of scholars, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible offers valuable insight at every turn."

Craig Keener,
Asbury Theological Seminary


"The new NIV Zondervan Study Bible has exhibited precisely those kinds of helps a Bible reader would hope to find to aid one's understanding and appreciation for what the Bible teaches. This Study Bible has all the marks of greatness about it, both in its introductory articles and the accompanying notes, pictures, and graphs. The NIV Zondervan Study Bible, under D. A. Carson, has assembled some of the best Biblical interpreters and teachers to explain any places where the average reader of the Scriptures would need help to make the reading and study of the text more pleasurable and insightful. Here is one of the great tools that will help reduce and eradicate the poverty of Biblical knowledge and increase the appreciation of God's word in all of its power for life today."

Walter C. Kaiser, Jr.,
President-Emeritus Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary


"Don Carson and the whole team deserve our congratulations. The notes and articles of the NIV Zondervan Study Bible are helpful, thorough, and readable, and the maps and artwork are beautiful. I am particularly grateful for the writers' emphasis on Biblical Theology and the unity of the Bible."

Paul R. House,
Professor of Divinity, Beeson Divinity School of Samford University


"With a treasure trove of fair-minded introductions to biblical books and themes, accessible verse-by-verse commentary by a stellar cast of experts, and a reliable series of articles on the gospel-shape of all Scripture, the NIV Zondervan Study Bible is a uniquely important resource to add to your collection."

The Rev'd Dr John P. Dickson,
Founding Director, Centre for Public Christianity
