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 Mens Devotional Bible/Classic Edition-HC?
Question about quality May 3, 2009
Does the bible open wide enough to read the page without wrestling with it?
[Editors Note: - I would suggest you contact the manufacturer - they know their products the best, and they are the only people who will truly be able to answer questions of this nature.]
Quite pleased! Dec 22, 2006
I ordered this for my husband for Christmas and I am quite pleased. The bible is beautifully presented in hardcover and the cover is of a rowboat on a lake in shades of tan. It's a very contemporary presentation and I think it's welcoming to men, particularly those who may be new to the faith. I think he'll love it.
The NIV text is great as it's very understandable. The daily devotions are outstanding. There is one for every day of the year. They are written not only by ministers/pastors, but also Christian surgeons, athletes, accountants, writers, teachers, etc. They give personal, but Godly, perspectives on all aspects of a man's life. They address issues specific to those striving to be real Christian men in this world. (This is the 1995 publication, but I still think it's wonderful. After reading through his, I'm going to get the Women's Devotional Bible!)
The only thing missing for me is that I wish there was space after the devotions for the reader to make personal notes/reflections. However, that's a minor thing because you can always make notations in the margins if you wish.
Decent bible for a small price Mar 13, 2006
I wouldn't consider this a fantastic or a keepsake bible, but it is practical and has some good reflections for men in it. The index is very lacking in functionality and completeness. If you are looking for something basic, this is good.
Excellent devotional Bible Oct 1, 2005
The New International Version Bible has been my personal favorite translation for nearly twenty years. And this Men's Devotional Bible is, perhaps, my favorite edition of the NIV Bible. In addition to the Word of God to guide one's daily walk with Christ, this Bible contains many great devotions to help draw a man closer to God. This Bible is loaded with writings from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, C.S. Lewis and St. Francis of Assisi, as well as contemporary writings by Charles Colson, Billy Graham and Chuck Swindoll, to name a few. There are also some great devotions by professional athletes such as Dave Dravecky, Orel Herschiser, Mike Singletary and Reggie White. Also included are author biographies of the devotional writers and a subject index. Altogether, the NIV Men's Devotinal Bible is a great devotional Bible for men to help them become better husbands and fathers in addition to growing closer to God.
A wonderful resource Jan 6, 2005
In the summer of 1994 I received the original hardcover version of the NIV Men's Devotional Bible through a book club. I hadn't intended to use it myself, rather I thought that it might make a nice gift for a friend. After I started going through the daily readings and the accompanying devotions, I decided to keep it for myself. Although I've been a Christian for many years, I've always found it to be beyond my level of self-discipline to continually practice the habit of daily Bible readings; using this Bible, I changed that. Although it still took me nearly two years to read through the one year of devotional readings, for me that was infinitely better than any other daily devotional books or Bibles, none of which I have ever finished. Since that time, I am now going through it for the third time.
I can't say enough about how this edition of the Bible has changed my life. The Bible will change anyone's life, if that person is willing to read it and meditate on what it says. This Bible edition, for the first time, helped me to do that on a daily basis. Since I started reading it, I have given it as a gift to nearly every male friend of mine, always in the hope that they will gain from it some of what I've received.
If you'd like a good taste of some of the better devotionals, and if it's possible either to find them on-line or at your local bookstore (Walmart used to carry it, even), I'd especially recommend looking at the devotions in Song of Songs (aka "Song of Solomon"). The beauty of the devotional writings is their depth and breadth, which is incredibly diverse. While there have been some readings which did little to challenge or encourage me, I'm more impressed by how many actually did.
The best recommendation that I can give for this book is this: Any male Christian who uses this Bible as a devotional tool, reading and meditating on the daily Scripture readings, will grow to know, love, and obey God in a deeper sense. I believe that those who know me would agree that God has used this in my life to make me more loving and sensitive, as well as more assertive and outspoken about my faith.
Great Devotional Tool Mar 28, 2002
I have truly enjoyed this devotional bible. It has such "real world" devotional applications in it. This is my working bible as I have underlined and hi-lited many of the verses that applied to my particular need at the time of my reading. This particular bible has fueled my desire to further my personal growth in God's word. What an asset it has become in my life.
