I just received an email that the NIV Thinline Reference Bible, Large print edition in ebony cowhide is on its way. I was lucky and found a website with this $129 Bible listed for $52. So I quickly jumped on that deal. The website no longer has this Bible at $52 but now at $90. Otherwise I would tell you where you also could get this great deal. I only wish that this edition was a single column layout rather than the standard double column. But everything else looks great on the web and I should have it in my hands by next week. I look forward to having an updated NIV in print (or perhaps more appropriately called the Revised TNIV, but RTNIV is probably too long for an acronym). Now as I carry out my studies and sermon preparations, I can consult the NIV 2011 and pass on my findings to you. Now I just need my Bible software program to make the updated NIV available and then I will be able to really dig into the new NIV.
By the way, I am currently reading A Slave by John MacArthur. If I find anything interesting or questionable from my reading I will be sure to share it with you.
