Reviews - What do our customers think?
Today's New International Version   Mar 8, 2007
Having read reviews and commentaries by several theologians and biblical historians, I was anxious to draw my own conclusions. There is apparently a good deal of controversy among some denominations regarding primarily one methodology used in the translation. An effort was made in translating to use gender neutral terms where the original sources indicated them to be appropriate, both from the language and context. From my reading to date, I have found nothing to be the least bit offensive to me, personally. It is not, as some have said, a "feminization" of the Bible. I consider myself to be a "moderate" Christian who belongs to a "conservative" denomination. Those who believe that the Bible (in whatever translation they favor)is word-for-word literal will likely find this translation to be problematic. Those who believe the Bible to be God's Word in a more general sense, will find it refreshing and easy to read. The historical footnotes are excellent references, and as with the original NIV, the literary qualities of the Bible are well-maintained.
Very Readable with Great Study Notes  Mar 8, 2007
I am really enjoying reading the TNIV, but what I am enjoying even more are the study notes. They are very comprehensive and enlightening. Most of the notes are different than what are found in other study bibles that I have.
Get me a magnifying glass! Does Zondervan even care?  Nov 28, 2006
My review will not discuss the TNIV translation itself, which I like quite well. The text alone I would rate 4 stars. My review will deal only with the quality of publication and on the notes in general.

On a good note, the actual binding looks strong and since the Bible is quite thick, the binding has a lot to hold. The leather used for the European leather is more like synthetic rubber, not real leather. (But I still like the look and durability.) The paper has a weird texture but seems tough. The Bible is SINGLE COLUMN, the major selling point. Also, many of the notes, espcially those with historical content, are very helpful and informative.

Now to the bad stuff: The paper is still very thin, with shadowing. All the pages of this enormous Bible (about 2500 pages) are stuck together due to the gold edging, so dedicate some time to do the work that this publisher should have done. After you unstick them all, the edges are wavy and not straight; they seem to have a lip on the edges.

The print size, even on the regular sized Bible, is tiny, maybe 8.5 - 9 pica. Also, the print is not bold at all, so the reading is even more difficult. The notes are smaller print yet. If you have good eyes, you can get used to it, but be aware of this fact before you buy.

The doctrinal notes are marginally helpful and reflect only an evangelical perspective (which I can accept, since this is not meant to be a systematic theology), and are full of abbreviations and references to other notes. Not enough detail to analyze, just propogate. At places where the translation should be questioned or alternative readings given, there is rarely a comment! Translator notes are sparse, compared to many other translations.

Another problem: The translator notes and the cross references are all referenced by superscript letters. Which letter goes to which reference? You tell me. Why didn't the typesetters use asterisks or some other designation?

I don't think that Zondervan cares about the TNIV yet. They won't publish a quality edition. Maybe they are waiting to see if it takes off, in case they have to cut their losses. They haven't even put out a real pocket Bible yet (one that actually fits into a pants pocket) or a quality CD Audio Bible (the one out there now has many voices and is far less than professional quality). Their new Audio CD, the Bible Experience, made by real professional actors, may be worth having, but I haven't listened to it yet.

Zondervan needs to realize that MANY of the readers of their products are 40 plus years of age and need a respectable print size. Single column is far preferable, no bleed-through paper distracting the reader, some real quality leather. Don't sell Bibles with all the pages stuck together- that is CHEAP!

If they don't put out some quality products soon, I'll have to ditch the TNIV and go to one of the other modern translations, like HCSB.

P.S. I have been so critical of this particular edition because I use it as my primary translation and study Bible, so I want Zondervan to take notice.
Nothing special, but quite interesting  Nov 21, 2006
When purchasing any publication which contains the letters NIV, one knows the slant which will be given to study notes and annotations. The TNIV text reflects the new insights gained in the years since the publication of the NIV, but lacks the accuracy of the (N)RSV. The text is interesting to read alongside the NRSV - it is always good to read more than one translation if one is unable to read the texts in Hebrew or Greek. The study notes are what one would expect from authors firmly seated on the right wing of the church. As with any annotations, one has to be selective when reading them - blindly accepting what is written just because a big name has written it shows a lack of depth to one's faith. Those of us who are more critical and who are open to less rigid interpretation of biblical texts will find our toes curling on many occasions whilst reading the annotations. This study bible is useful as a secondary source alongside the New Oxford Annotated NRSV, the new edition of the HarperCollins Study Bible NRSV or the New Interpreter's Study Bible NRSV (note that all the major study bibles use the NRSV!!).
The layout of this study bible is pleasant to the eyes and the single column text makes for better reading (the New English Bible also used single column text). Unfortunately Zondervan did not take the trouble to read the notes provided by the translators, especially the part where the translators make known their dislike of red letter text. Red letter text is both unnecessary and irritating. Why people need it is most puzzling. The text in red letters is most unlikely to have been spoken! The first gospel (Mark) appeared quite some time after Paul's first letter - a fact conveniently forgotten by many who should know better.
To sum up: this publication is useful as a secondary resource; the TNIV is what the NIV should have been in the first place.
Great Updated Text!  Nov 4, 2006
As a pastor, I have always been a fan of the NIV Study Bible because it gives students resources for understanding biblical texts, both in terms of background and interpretation. I was pleased to see the publication of the TNIV Study Bible because I have also become a fan of the TNIV with its updated language and non-exclusive use of gender terms (unrelated to God's identity). The TNIV Study Bible uses the basic text of the NIV Study Bible, including helpful maps and charts. It simply updates the text to match the TNIV. This is the perfect resource for those who love the TNIV and the the advantages of the NIV Study Bible.
