More About Zondervan Publishing
Zondervan is an American international Christian media and publishing company located in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Zondervan is a founding member of the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA).
Zondervan was founded in 1931 in Grandville, MI, a suburb of Grand Rapids, by brothers Peter ("P.J.", "Pat") and Bernard (Bernie) Zondervan, who were the nephews of publisher William B. Eerdmans. The company began in the Zondervans' farmhouse and originally dealt with selling remainders and publishing public domain works. The first book it published was Women of the Old Testament by Abraham Kuyper, in 1933.
Within a few years Zondervan developed titles of its own, and began publishing Bible editions. The Berkeley Version appeared in 1959, and the Amplified Bible in 1965. The NIV New Testament was published in partnership with the International Bible Society in 1973, and the complete NIV Bible appeared in 1978.
The company was bought by HarperCollins, a division of News Corp, in 1988, and is the company's principal Christian book publishing division.
Zondervan also publishes many other books by Christian authors focusing on topics of interest to Christians. In the 1970s it published The Late Great Planet Earth by Hal Lindsey, which has sold more than 30 million copies. They are also known for the Bible storytelling books of Ethel Barrett, Joni by quadriplegic Joni Eareckson Tada, Baptist minister and author Rick Warren's The Purpose Driven Life, which has sold more than 35 million copies, Sacred Marriage, the modern marriage classic by Gary Thomas (author), and Rob Bell, author of Velvet Elvis and presenter of NOOMA. NOOMA is a series of short spiritual films. In 2004, Zondervan expanded to include Renee Altson, Shane Claiborne, Sarah Raymond Cunningham and Margaret Feinberg, authors writing for young readers.

Someone at my church had a similar Bible which prompted me to check out what might be available. My primary interest was to have a light-weight Bible to take when I travel. I found what I was looking for at this site and ordered one for myself and a friend and ordered several for gifts. I was very pleased with the quality and it exactly met my expectations!
great deal! Jul 10, 2006
I love this Bible! Small, great graphics on the front, leather is nice. Only complaint - print is a bit small for middle-aged eyes, but the small type makes the small size possible. You can't have it all, but this Bible does portable, complete, and cute really well. A winner!
Cute little travel Bible May 16, 2006
I use this Bible on my bus/train commute to work. Before I got it, there were times I wanted to look up scripture & had thought of carrying a full sized Bible with me, but I wasn't willing to carry the bulk in my backpack. This is a perfect solution & cute too. It's a regular NIV translation & the words of Christ are in red. The print is a bit small for me (I'm in my 40s), but is as expected for such a small book (3.5" x 7" &<1" thick). I couldn't use it all the time & it's not a study Bible, but really meets my needs when commuting.
