Newer version with gender neutral revisions--would like an older NIV version
on October 9, 2012
Love having my Bible on my phone, always loved the NIV. However, this is a newer, politically correct, gender neutral version which is not an accurate translation. (When it came out in the general marketplace, it was called "Today's NIV"-I guess they got so much flack about their new version, they took out the "Today's" and made it standard NIV.) When you add words, you are not translating, you are adding commentary, in my opinion, to the Word of God. Will probably delete this version as soon as I find an older NIV available (there is a 1984 version in the iphone apps...) Hate wasting money, but hate more that when I read what I have known and memorized and find it is different.
Nope-won't make the difference between heaven and hell--but it is my opinion.
