NIrV—New International Readers Version

Imagine a Bible, not just for scholars and adults, but a Bible for people of all ages!

The NIrV, The New International Readers Version, is exactly that!

And the best part? It’s a Bible translation, not a paraphrase, especially geared to children and those for whom English is not their first language, with no compromise in the accuracy of the biblical text!

A child can read the Creation account, for example, not rewritten as a “story,” but in a biblical text easily understood.

What one mom described as “a fantastic experience” for her child!

Second- and third-grade children were asked by translators to be a focus group, and they enthusiastically gave their understanding to many of the words used. Again and again asking: “When will our Bible come out?

It is truly “their” Bible—a Bible for all people—of all ages!
