More About Zondervan

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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
excellent resource  Mar 22, 2007
This Bible is an excellent way to get 4 of the best Bible translations all together in one place. It makes it very simple to compare verses without having four separate Bibles open. I plan on taking it to Bible College with me this fall in order to save space that would have been needed for four separate Bibles. The burgandy leather cover is very nice. My only negative comment would be the small print, but I realize that with four complete translations, it would end up being a huge book if the print were larger.
A great Bible for study  Jan 30, 2007
With four Bibles on each page, it is a very good way to study the Bible and have a more complete idea of what each verse means in everyday terms. The Amplified Bible gives an expanded view of each verse and helps to understand what the other versions mean. I highly recommend.
WOW!  Jan 29, 2007
I originally started looking for a Bible that would help with studying - side by side comparison to get a better flavor of the Word. One night, I had four or five Bibles lined up trying to dig in to a passage and thought - this is really clumsy, the pages don't match up and it was difficult to jump between Bibles and not lose track! SO this four translation Bible is a really great solution!! It's really great to have at Bible study.
It's easy to use, King James version on the left - all the print is easily readable (I've got some friends in their sixties and seventies who have no problem with the typeface), it fits into a extra large Bible cover in case you're wondering and weighs about two pounds.
Also - this site's service was really wonderful, the super saver shipping actually arrived more quickly than I anticipated - and all was in good condition! I am very impressed.
Great  Jan 17, 2007
Excellent for self or group study. I bought this as a gift for my boyfriend. This enables him to read his preferred translation and still have access to my preferred translation when we read together. It is always nice to have a KJV to reference when in question of something.
Awesome  Jan 9, 2007
This is awesome to get all translations in one place. It's much easier to read than you think (all the columns line up between all the translations). Highly recommended!
