NIV Revision

This has already gone around quite a bit already, but I thought that I might as well make the anouncement too being that translation is one of the interests of this blog:

The official press release says:

The global board of Biblica today announced its intention to update the New International Version (NIV) of the Bible, the first time it has been revised since 1984. The Committee on Bible Translation (CBT), the independent body of global biblical scholars solely responsible for the translation of the world’s most popular Bible, is slated to finish its revision late next year, with publication in 2011. The announcement was made at Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, Ill., the site of the historic first meeting of the CBT in 1965.

Some of the places you can find more information thus far are the new NIV Bible 2011 website, which has the press release and also a box for asking questions.

And these blog posts:

It sounds like the TNIV and the 1984 NIV will both disappear with this new revision.

A variety of Bloggers have also picked up on it. These are the ones I’ve seen so far (at least that I can find again):

Finally, I think all of this is hilarious in light of Mark’s post just a little bit ago:

    What can I say? I’m a prophet without honour!

    I think Biblica should spice things up a bit and grant the US publishing license to someone other than Zondervan. :-)
