 TNIV: New Zondervan Bible Translation Upsets Some Christians


WASHINGTON — A new Bible translation, aimed at younger readers, is drawing fire from some scholars.

Today's New International Version (search), or TNIV, has just been published in complete form by Zondervan Publishing. It's meant for the prime-time demographic: adults 18 to 34 years old.

In this new translation, some masculine references are made more gender-neutral.

Genesis 1:27, "so God created man in his own image" in the more traditional New International Version, is changed in the TNIV to "so God created human beings in his own image."
