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.

This is the perfect Bible to keep with you no matter where you go!!!
I love it Jun 26, 2006
Easy to read and I love that the words of Jesus are in all in red.
A tiny testament - A huge value ! May 26, 2006
I always loved the NIV edition of the NT. Now I can take it with me anywhere I go to with great ease! This edition is leather bound. The pages are thin and delicate and the words of Christ are written in red colour as to distinct them from the rest of the book. While the book is small to fit in your shirt-pocket, the words are very readable. Other value is that the book can be given as a gift for someone special, as the first page is a page of "Presented to".
An excellent pocket-sized bible Jan 5, 2006
This New Testament is an excellent size for carrying in a bag or pocket. Unlike the identically-sized ESV New Testament (ISBN 1581345976), it has a very sturdy, fake-leather cover, which overhangs the pages to protect them from damage. It also has a useful fabric place-marker.
If you want a pocket NT, I highly recommend it. However, it's not entirely without faults...
- unlike some the other reviewers, I do not appreciate the words of Christ being in red: this makes them harder to read, and may imply to some readers that the rest of the bible is not equally inspired of God.
- while easy to read, the NIV translation often strays unhelpfully far from the literal meaning of the original Greek texts.
- there is a very unhelpful FAQ-style page at the back of the book, entitled 'Getting To Know Jesus'. Rather than pointing the reader to God's words on the subject (to be found throughout the preceding pages of the book!), the author gives only his own glib and somewhat misleading musings. What a waste of paper.
But overall, this is a very nice publication... I've bought several as presents for friends and family.
Tiny Book, Infinite Topic Sep 19, 2005
This tiny New Testament is a very convenient way to keep the historical, accurate record of Jesus Christ in easy close proximity. It is a great item to share with others as a gift.
