If your translation of choice is the New International Version (NIV), and if you appreciate The Message for the freshness and insight it brings to your reading of the Bible, then you'll love the NIV and THE MESSAGE SIDE-BYS-SIDE BIBLE. Setting the NIV and The Message together, this Bible allows you to instantly compare the NIV and Eugene Peterson's bestselling paraphrase verse by verse.
The New International Version is the world's most popular modern English Bible translation. Developed by Biblica, formerly the International Bible Society, the New International Version is the result of years of work by the Committee on Bible Translation, overseeing the efforts of many contributing scholars. The translators are drawn from a wide range of denominations and from various countries and they continually review new research in order to ensure the NIV remains at the forefront of accessibility, relevance and authority.
