This Bible uses the NIV revised text and are ideal for church use. This
new edition takes into account the the latest developments on Bible
scholarship and language usage.
The 2011 NIV translation's goal is to bring the translation into line
with both contemporary biblical scholarship and with changes in English
language idiom and usage. The 1984 NIV update included various
corrections and revisions to the original NIV text. In 2005 a revision
process was completed that resulted in the separately published Today's
New International Version. The 2011 NIV update builds on both the
original NIV and TNIV.
95% of the text of the new updated 2011 edition of the NIV is exactly
the same as the 1984 text that it replaces. The majority of changes
involve minor matters of vocabulary, sentence structure and punctuation.
Some of the other change reflect advances in biblical scholarship over
the last three decades. Reasons for the change in text in the new NIV
2011 edition fall into three categories:
- Changes in English.
- Progress in Scholarship.
- Concern for Clarity
