It presents the fruit of the ongoing study of the same team of translators that were responsible for the original NIV. The uniqueness of "TNIV" rests in its ability to speak God's word clearly and accurately in English that has developed and changed over the last quarter century. The result is a Bible text that reflects the NIV but also clarifies and updates passages and words to provide a more timely, contemporary English rendition for a new generation of Bible readers. The royalty from every Hodder and Stoughton "TNIV Bible" that you buy helps to fund the International Bible Society's effort to translate and distribute Bibles to people in need around the world.
The International Bible Society (IBS) commissioned both the NIV and TNIV. Its mission is to faithfully translate, publish and reach out with God's Word to people around the world. The Committee on Bible Translation (CBT) produced both the NIV and TNIV. It is an independent body of the most renowned English-speaking biblical linguists and scholars in the world.
