Zondervan plans to release an updated version of the New International Version in 2011, timed with the 400th anniversary of the King James Version. Begun in 1965, the NIV has more than 300 million copies in print worldwide. The new edition will re-evaluate “dated” language, and review “every gender-related change since the publication of the 1984 edition,” according to NIV spokespersons. Previous editions of the NIV, including Today’s New International Version, will be phased out after publication of the new edition.
