Commissioned by King James I, it was the achievement of nearly fifty translators, who over four years revised the Bishop’s Bible in the light of available Greek and Hebrew documents as well as other contemporary European translations. The result was the first Authorized Version, known to Americans as the King James Version. Subsequent editions corrected early misprints, modernized some spellings, and standardized features such as punctuation and italicization. The most famous revisions include the Cambridge edition of 1762, the Oxford edition of 1769 and Dr. F.H.A. Scrivener’s Cambridge Paragraph Bible of 1873. Zondervan uses the Scrivener edition for its KJV Bibles.The New International Version (NIV) is today’s most popular and most trusted English Bible translation. Since its release in 1973, the NIV has sold over 160 million copies. The goal of the NIV translation team was to produce a contemporary translation whose accuracy, clarity and literary quality would make it ideal for public and private reading, teaching, preaching, memorizing and liturgical use. Today the NIV is accepted by over 60 denominations--more than any other translation--and is supported by a library of reference resources unmatched by any other translation.

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/KJV Parallel Bible/Large Print-HC?
Like the lay out, do not like the lack of Christ's words in Red Mar 23, 2007
I really like this Bible. The layout is great. I like the fact that I can read both versions on the same page. This has helped me with my Bible study a lot. However, I am so disappointed that the words of Christ are NOT in red. It appauls me that words in red are not available for this type of Bible. Why in the world would that be omitted? That's almost like omitting Christ from out lives. What a horrible world this would be without Christ. Also, I wished the Bible had tabs. Add these two items to the Bible and this would be the perfect Bible.
NIV/KJV Parallel Bible, Large Print Jan 20, 2007
I am quite pleased to have this Bible. The only negative that I can think of pertains to the size of the font. The font is larger than most but not as large as some other Bibles I have seen. Otherwise, I would highly recommend it.
kjv/niv parallel Bible Jan 18, 2007
We are very pleased with this Bible. It is like it was described. We like this cover better than a hard cover. It is very useful in comparing the two versions to help to understand verses.
I didn't get what i payed for! Aug 18, 2006
I didn't get what I payed for! The screen said large print bible and I recived a bible with regular print! It was for my moms birthday, it was a good thing she wasn't to dissapointed.
Very Nice Bible Jan 31, 2006
This is a good quality and impressive looking Bible, and one that I'm sure I will enjoy and use for years. I have received numerous compliments on it, and I highly recommend it. I do have two things, though, that I might point out. If you're looking for a red-letter Bible, this isn't. This is a minor thing to me, so I didn't mark it down because of this. Why I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is that I bought this Bible sight unseen, and since I'm 57, and plan to use it for quite awhile, I decided to get the large print edition. When I first opened it, my first reaction was: Oops! They sent me the standard print Bible; as the print is what I expected as a standard print edition...meaning, the print is about what you would see if you received a typed letter. I have also had this same comment from several people who have looked at it. But it does say in the front of the Bible that it is large print, and I do have another Bible that does have a little smaller print, so I guess my idea of large print is not the same as the publisher. Anyway, if your eyesight requires large print, you might wish to look at this Bible first before you buy. I know other publishers do have larger print.
