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.

I recieved it within days of ordering it which is great considering I live on the other side of the world almost. There was no damage to the book and it was well worth buying. Thankyou very much for the service. Danni
a nice sized portable bible at a good price! Oct 24, 2009
with all the controversy over this translation i had overlooked it for years being content with the new living translation. i never really was sold on the niv and figured this would be just along the same lines. so why bother. well i had visited john armstrong's blog and he had posted some good info on the tniv that prompted me to take a look at this version and i am glad i did. the tniv falls between a formal word-for-word translation and a dynamic thought-for-thought translation that seeks to be gender-accurate rather than gender-inclusive. the tniv basically is a update of the niv that made changes to about 7% of the niv text with only one third being related to gender. but there was hundreds of changes made in the text to " enchance the exegetical accuracy" that makes this translation more appealing to me than the niv. see The Complete Guide to Bible Translations: *How They Were Developed *Understanding Their Differences *Finding the Right One for You from ron rhodes for more info on this and other translations. in fact linguistic scholar craig blomberg has documented verses showing where he feels the tniv is more exegetically accurate than the niv. go to [...] and see "today's new international version: the untold story of a good translation." it's always good to compare translations to get the full meaning and understanding of the text. the scriptures themselves make the best commantary you can get. so for the price and the offers on this site(super saver shipping,4 for 3 promo) this is well worth adding to ones bible collection. especially now that the tniv is going to be discontinued to make room for the newly revised niv which is set to come out in 2011. evidently with all the misunderstanding and controversy over the tniv the sales were not what they were looking for!
