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 NIV Archaeological Study Bible-Burgundy Bond?
It's all Here! Mar 25, 2007
I love history, archeology and the BIble. THey're all together here and with a lot of "factoids" that I'd been wondering about.
Minnesota Charlie Mar 20, 2007
Excellent Bible for study. I ordered one for my daughter at Christmas because she would take my edition off the shelf when I was ready to do some reading. I like the NIV for reading (I have 3 other styles) and the extra info included is very interesting to read. I ordered the NIV Bible on CD's and my goal is to make it thru the Bible at least twice in one year.
Good but Mar 17, 2007
This Bible is great for some information but falls short in the reference area. I still like it and do not regret the purchase at all.
This bible is truely a marvel Feb 24, 2007
What can I say? If you are any kind of history buff, this is *the* bible for you! It is remarkable. Just look at the other reviews! Decide for yourself. David W.
Great Historical Culture Book Feb 19, 2007
A wonderful edition to add to one's Biblical Library. It gives not only the Culture of the ancient Hebrews but also the culture of those around them. The print is very small for the notes and articles, Many people will need something like a magnifying bookmark to keep from getting headaches. It does have the look of a history textbook and could be used for a survey of the Bible class. I do wish it had been published in the King James Version, then it could also be used for a Bible as Lit class.
