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.

Reviews - What do customers think about TNIV | The Message®//REMIX Parallel Bible (Today's New International Version)?
Not What I Thought Dec 12, 2006
I purchased this for my mom for Christmas this year and it just arrived. First, I was saddened to find it isn't actually leather. If the cover was leather it would be one of the coolest looking bibles I've ever seen. But it's man made so it's going back for that alone. Second, I purchased this particular one because of it's size. I thought a larger bible would have larger font. Absolutely not. I'm 26 w/ perfect vision and I had a hard time reading the text because of the font size they chose. Other than the two problems above, I really like the side by side passages and the feel of the book.
TNIV/Message Remix is a great bible Nov 6, 2006
I really like this Bible. I was hesitant to get it after reading other reviews complaining about the font size, but while the font is rather small, I do not have any vision problems so it hasn't bothered me at all. It's similar to the font that you get with the pocket-sized Bibles.
The Message Remix is the type of reference that you'd like to have handy, but don't want to use as your only resource, so I've found it very helpful to have alongside the TNIV, so I can read the TNIV and refer to the Message Remix whenever I want to get a fresh perspective on the text.
It is much bigger than the thin-line Bibles, but that's what you expect when you get two Bibles in one binding. Another thing to know is that there is no red text (customarily used to highlight the words of Jesus). This is more than compensated for by the Message Remix book introductions, which are a less than 1 page summary at the start of each book in the Bible describing the context in which that book was written and the general message. These introductions are probably my favorite part about this Bible, and make it something that would be very good as a gift to a new Christian or someone who is not a Christian.
Recently a friend of mine who is a new Christian commented how he was reading his TNIV and wondered why it made such a big deal about Jesus eating with "tax collectors". This example shows why this Bible is a great idea as a gift for people new to Christianity, because if he had had the Message Remix right next to the TNIV text, he could have looked over and seen that the Message version says "people of disreputable character", or something like that.
Great Bible, highly recommended for young readers (due to the font size, may not be good for older people or people with vision problems), people new to Christianity (because of the book introductions and the ability to use the Message Remix version to understand difficult texts), and people who have been Christian for a long time (because of the fresh perspective the Message Remix version gives you on the text you are reading!).
Controversy...uh, where's the critical review? Oct 29, 2006
Wow. You'd never guess that the this site review space would be the place to discuss translation controversies and personal name calling. I'm a little more interested in knowing if I really want to buy this book.
As previously mentioned, the type is small and that can be a problem for many people, but I did find the pages to be bright. The bright page allows for a good contrast and aids the reader when looking into the small print.
As to the cover... This particular cover is hardback which is mentioned in the description. The hardback cover is stout and has a refined almost creamy feel to it. I was impressed with it for the low price.
Lastly, as a parent of teenaged boy that likes the paraphrase of The Message, I am particularly happy to see the coupling of the paraphrase with a quality translation like the TNIV. With this tool, I expect my teen will be able to enjoy the paraphrase while measuring it against true translation sciences.
Overall, this is a great bargain on a high quality offering.
More a paraphrase than a translation Sep 17, 2006
In my opinion the TNIV strays too far from the original manuscripts it is based on. It is more a paraphrase than a translation. I prefer the NKJV, NIV, or NASB to this.
It's awesome, but... Aug 9, 2006
I love the style of it. And i love the fact that it's two Bibles in one. The TNIV is an awesome translation, and the Message Bible helps you get a better understanding of things. But the pages are too delicate. They're not as thick as i'm used to. I feel like i'm about to rip a page when ever i turn one. The font size is a bit smaller than what i'm used to, but not that much smaller. It's still readable without any problems, for me. I give this Bible four stars because i don't like how delicate the pages are.
