You may be wondering why there are so many versions of the Bible. But, you may be even more interested to know that in 1966 a large number of people felt that the language of the Bible needed to be more contemporary. That is where the idea of the New International Version, or NIV, came from. When this was being created it took 15 scholars to work on it.
The New York Bible Society decided that they would take on any financial responsibility for this project. More than 100 different scholars worked on the translation for this version. It was finally completed and printed in 1973. If you have ever considered quoting the New International Version ( NIV ), then you should know that you can do this without having any written permission or authorization from the publisher of the Bible.
This book has been thought to bring an understanding of the Bible, and the Bible Verses inside, to those individuals of all ages and nationalities.

It has been thought that this version has been successful at bringing more people closer to God and helped more individuals understand the word of God.
