While NIV is easy to read it is not the best modern translation. I would not recommend it, it has a clear doctrinal bias and in places it could even be called a dishonest translation. The New Revised Standard Version is much better for anyone who wants to understand what the Biblical authors were saying with out learning Greek and Hebrew. ( )

People complain about the gender-smoothing in the 2011 NIV, but most of it is harmless; occasionally I think it is a mistake. However, when compared with the NIV 1984, overall I think 8 of 10 changes are definite improvements, 1 out 10 is indifferent, and 1 out of 10 is retrograde. Whilst it is fine to moan about gender-smoothing (and I would often agree), it has to be seen in context. Considering gender-smoothing alone is rather doctrinaire. ( )

Disambiguation notice
Various printings and bindings of the 'original' NIV have been combined here. Please continue to combine any printing with the Old and New Testament texts only here. Please do not combine NIV editions that contain the Apocrypha with this work. Various "study editions" with extensive notes and aids should not be combined here. Please separate any that are here, and combine such editions as separate works. Note that this is not the same translation as the TNIV, sometimes confusingly called "Today's NIV". Likewise the new 2011 NIV translation should not be combined here, as it is significantly different from the original edition.
