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 Witness Edition-SC?
Ecclesiastes Oct 23, 2006
I love reading and there have been many books that have impacted me. The book that has impacted me the most has been Ecclesiastes. One verse that has helped me a lot is Ecclesiastes 11:10, it says,"So then, banish anxiety from your heart and cast off the troubles of your body, for youth and vigor and meaningless." It always reminds me that I don't need to stress out about things, because I am still young and I have my whole life ahead of me. It is a great book about wisdom and it corrects many common thoughts.
font is a bit small May 24, 2006
After reading the GNB without the Apocrypha (paper back) I suppose I was spoiled by the larger font size. The way the Apocryphal material is translated is just as clean, to the point, and easy to read as was the non-Apocryphal material was. It's just that the font is a little smaller and harder to read for those who are getting older, and whose vision is getting worse.
RECOMMEND Feb 24, 2006
This is a very nice bible. It's easy to understand and read. I would recommend it highly.
Bible Review Sep 19, 2005
The service was quick and fast. The price was definitely right. Unfortunately, the item was quite old. I purchased it for my granddaughter as her first school Bible, and it wasn't what I really wanted for her. Of course, it is a Bible, so I kept it and got her a new Bible at my local book store.
66 Books in 1? Cant be bad! Nov 29, 2004
This is a collection of stories and chronologies spanning from Whence Time Began, through to the End of Days, and has all the ingredients which have made it a best seller world wide.
You have kings and kidnapping, adultery and angels, and proof that one man Can make a difference! I suspect that in many years time when the DVD comes out complete with the extra gospels edited out at the council of Hippo in 393, and four alternative endings to coincide with the differing way things can be interpreted, one of which will no doubt include the original ending of the gospels in which there was no resurrection, just an empty tomb, it will break a fair few sales records across the globe.
Certainly this book captures the imagination. Like every good book, the reader becomes involved with the text and it stirs their emotions to a point where it becomes possible to immerse yourself completely. It has developed quite a cult following all over the world, and the regularity of festivals which originate from biblical events is truly mind-blowing.
Like a good film, it has also become extremely quotable, to the point where most people will know exactly what you are referring to after you've reeled off a few lines.
The only real let down is the ending, where things descend into the realms of dungeons and dragons, and although the whole of the last book is pretty much agreed on by scholars to be a metaphor, it just takes away that area of believability which had been built up from the beginning, but... all in all, it makes for a read quite like no other you'll pick up for a very long time!
