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.

Great Book, Endless Subject Matter Jan 26, 2005
I am amazed that the most sought after, fought after book in history has not been reviewed. Well it is an honor to be a trail blazer in writing the first this site review on the Bible. First off I prefer the New King James Version of the bible because it preserves the old english language but makes it more understandable in todays vernacular. It is unfortunate that many have used Christianity for ill and have never even referred to the basic teachings of the Bible. The Bible speaks in figurative and literal language and for first time readers I would definitley recommend a Bible with commentary to explain the many issues the Bible addresses.
To see the bible as one book is the wrong approach. It is sold and marketed as one book but for literary and historical purposes it must be seen as a collection of books that tells a story, inspires, teaches and expounds on theological principles. Some books are very historical in the way they are written such as Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. Others are very poetic like Psalms, and Song of Solomon others are prophetic like Isaiah, Psalms, Daniel, and Jeremmiah. It is inspirational throughout and theological in many books particularly the new testament books of Ephesians and Galatians.
Another way to look at the bible for those who see it as complicated, is seeing it as a play with 66 scenes, each scene representing a book. It also has two acts-the old testament (Genesis-Malachi) and the new testament (Matthew-Revelations) The gospels or the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John speak on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and were each independently written but coincide in its message but not necessarily on its exact content and writing style. They do complement each other in an amazing way.
One reason that I refer to the bible as inspirational throughout is because the teachings relate to our lives in a direct way. With most books, after reading once or at most twice, you never want to read it again. But unlike most books, the Bible has a way of giving new revelation even when reading the same chapters or books many times over. Of course some disagree with me on this, but from whatever perspective you read the Bible, you cannot objectively refer to it as irrelevant and lacking in depth.
It is definitely worth the read and has been the catalyst to hundreds of thousands of books that expound on its teachings.
The book of 2nd Timothy 3:16-17 says " All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
To read it is to love. Whether you are a college student in a literature class, a person hungry for knowledge about God, or a person seeking a message for today's world, the Bible is definitely your book.
