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.

Today's Parallel Bible Mar 20, 2007
Great parallel Bible! Good Points: I think these are four of the best translations available today, although if I had my choice I might have picked the ESV or the HCSB instead of the NLT, although I love the NLT and already own a well used copy. The format is laid out where you can go across both pages and all four translations to see the same verse. Great! I own all of the translations except for the NASB which I have developed a quick attraction too and was debating on whether to get a new NASB Bible or this parallel, in the long run I decided on the parallel and glad I did. Even though it is heavy and bulky it has become the Bible that goes with me everywhere. Questionable or bad points: The bonded burgandy leather cover(the only available cover other than hardcover) is thin and cheap looking and feeling. Why Zondervan would not offer at least a genuine leather cover for a Bible with this much bulk is beyond me. I have written Zondervan and was told that my comments were forwarded to "the Bible dept" but have not received and most likely won't receive a response. I have already glued the back binding just for my own peace of mind. In addition, as stated on other reviews there are no maps, no concordance, not much room for notes and pretty much no way to personalize it in anyway - just four marvelous translations of God's Word. There is a 1/2" margin that I try to cram notes into and if you use highlighters than make sure you use the dry variety, these pages are very thin and bleed easily. Even though it seems on this review my complaints out number my positives that is far from the truth it reality. I use, read and love this Bible everyday and highly recommend it, the only reason that it wasn't a five star product is because of the cover and binding. As far as purchase I do recommend purchasing it on this site. I ended up paying about $60 including freight and the very same Bible at the local Christian bookstore was $90 + tax. Enjoy!
Great Buy!! Feb 23, 2007

This parallel bible gives an in-depth look at Scripture for the serious bible scholar. Having the various translations gives one an opportunity to understand the verses they are reading and studying by comparing various ways of wording scripture to meet anyone's biblical educational level. A great resource to understand and develop a personal relationship with Jesus.

Just what I thought it would be. In my estimation, all the best translations in one book. Excellent every day tool.
