3 comments on “The Revised NIV: You Have No Choice but Love It

  1. One of the big changes too, is the average reading level in the US. In ’84 the average reading level was rated at an 8th grade level. You’ll notice the OLD NIV is pretty close to that. That was done on purpose. The average reading level is now around a 5th or 6th grade level, and they’re moving it down again.

    One other thing to make clear though, the Message is not a translation, it’s a paraphrase.

    Great post!
