The NIV at 40

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the New International Version (NIV) of the bible being published in the UK, Biblica, The International Bible Society, and Hodder and Stoughton hosted a unique event in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Since its release the NIV has become the world’s best-selling Bible translation with more than 450 million copies in print worldwide. 

Behind the NIV Bible stands a world-class team of biblical scholars: the Committee on Bible Translation (CBT). CBT members bring decades of Bible translation experience to their work, along with an unshakeable commitment to God’s Word. Their efforts, which began in 1965, continue to this day, ensuring an accurate, faithful Bible translation for generations to come.

Doug Moo, Chair of the CBT

Mark Strauss, Vice-Chair CBT
