NIrV Outreach Bibles

The New International Reader's Version (NIrV) is a version of the New International Version (NIV) written for a third grade reading level -- among the lowest reading level of any Bible translations available. Like the NIV, the NIrV achieves great accuracy through equal rigor to the original languages and today's English. The NIrV makes the Bible understandable to younger readers and anyone else who would benefit from easier-to-read language.

It is the ideal Bible for:

  • children ages 6-10
  • adults who need a little extra reading help, and those for whom English is not their first language (ESL)
  • prison ministries, camps, children's ministries, and community outreach
