More about the translation:
This revised and updated edition of the NIV includes three main types of change, taking into account changes in the way we use language day to day; advances in biblical scholarship and understanding; and the need to ensure that gender accurate language is used, to faithfully reflect whether men and women are referred to in each instance. The translators have carefully assessed a huge body of scholarship, as well as inviting peer submissions, in order to review every word of the existing NIV to ensure it remains as clear and relevant today as when it was first published.
Royalties from all sales of the NIV Bible help Biblica, formerly the International Bible Society, in their work of translating and distributing Bibles around the world.
Gender accuracy makes this version less personal
My pastor, who uses an older version of the NIV, pointed out that the use of "they" to replace "he" (in this newer version) does make this version gender accurate. However, the personal, individual aspect of the meaning gets lost. "They" is a plural pronoun, and I, as a woman, might feel spoken to, but I might fail to get that a certain passage relates to me personally, as an individual. I prefer to accept that a male pronoun includes females, as I like the idea of feeling personally spoken to.
