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.

Reviews - What do customers think about TNIV Thinline Bible-Black/Black DuoTone?
God's word Feb 18, 2008
I think this is a great product because it is God's word in contemporary language!
I love my TNIV! Oct 1, 2007
I just purchased the TNIV (got the red one) and I LOVE it! This Bible is the perfect size - not too small, not too big, the font is easy on the eyes, it's light and easy to bring around, and I love the soft feel of the cover.
The translation is wonderful! Much of the more dubious phraseology in the NIV has been updated so that it's more readily understandable (e.g. "with child" changed to "pregnant")... and unlike many opponents of the TNIV suggest, this translation is not "gender-neutral" as much as it is "gender-inclusive." I love that it is CLEAR that I (as a woman & daughter of God) am included in the commands, exhortations and promises of God. :) I thought I would never make the switch from my beloved NIV (from which I had memorized over a hundred Scripture verses), but the Strauss vs. Grudem debate tipped me over to "the other side" -- i.e. the TNIV. It has been a good change -- refreshing and enlivening for my Spiritual journey. Thank you, TNIV translators!!!! =)
Strange taste Aug 21, 2007
Just one sentence about the translation: handy as a second translation, but not suitable for study or liturgical use; the NRSV is still unbeaten. Now to the strange taste. Burgundy/brown leather with silver(!!) page edges. So kitsch. Why not gold? Silver makes the publication look so cheap. Now for the binding: glued. Not the best way to bind a bible with a leather cover. Made in China: why China? What happened to the US or EU book binders? Red letter text: why does Zondervan ignore the express wishes of the translators by using red letter text in the NT? Zondervan seems to know better. There are other black letter publications of the TNIV out there. The above more than justifies the three stars. But ... at last there is a version of the TNIV which can be used by adults. Most versions seem to be aimed at putting off adults from buying it because of the gaudy covers which seem to be aimed at young people with little or no taste. Zondervan seems to be afraid that adults will get to like the text and stop using the NIV. For other versions suitable for adult use try those from Cambridge University Press. Zondervan seems to be more interested in milking the bible for big $$$ than offering quality.
Re-newed Bible reading vigor... Mar 8, 2007
Great Bible. Cool and compact. Pages turn with that gentle manner that only pages in a Bible, emitting that ever aromatic "new Bible" smell. This is a great translation. Much careful scholarship went into this version, gender inclusive or not, it is hands down one of the best translations around.
More a paraphrase than a translation Sep 17, 2006
In my opinion the TNIV strays too far from the original manuscripts it is based on. It is more a paraphrase than a translation. I prefer the NKJV, NIV, or NASB to this.
