Thomas Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, is pleased to announce the release of The Open Bible, now available for the first time in the widely read New International Version (NIV) translation.
The Bible is a book filled with different genres, like wisdom literature, poetry, prophetic speeches, and historical reporting and was written by many writers in many cultures in different languages over a long time. While its message points to one unified truth, the Bible in all its many parts can be complex and difficult to navigate.
The Open Bible helps readers approach this profound work with confidence and clarity. Offering a user-friendly navigation system that allows readers to easily find the connectivity of Scripture, it’s no wonder why The Open Bible is trusted by millions.
Now offered in the popular New International Version, The Open Bible continues to stand up to its name as the ultimate reference Bible for more than 40 years. A robust topical index with more than 8,000 names, places, concepts, and doctrines, all connected by both verse and page number, The NIV Open Bible gives readers more access to the truths of the Word. Book introductions and outlines improve understanding of the history and context of each writer, the important themes, and how Christ is the message from Genesis to Revelation.
In addition, The NIV Open Bible includes:
- Extensive cross-references so readers can find related passages and texts
- Visual Survey of the Bible, illustrating an easy-to-follow diagram of Scripture from Genesis 1 to today
- Amazing study aids, including a concordance, How to Study the Bible, The Christian’s Guide to the New Life, The Scarlet Thread of Redemption, and Prophecies of the Messiah Fulfilled in Christ
- Clear and readable NIV Comfort Print® in a 9-point print size
