Good news concerning the NIV. Shortly after our article in June, the International
Bible Society, who licenses the publishing of the NIV to Zondervan, stated that there will
be no gender-neutral version published in the United States. It also will make efforts to
stop its publication in England.
While we applaud the Society for its decision, this will not lessen the efforts of many
to make the church gender-neutral. As stated in the June issue, this is the real objective
for those pushing for such a translation. This is no time to fall asleep!
