The New International Reader’s Version (NIrV) is a translation of the Bible which uses simpler language and shorter sentences. Although designed to be more accessible to children and people who have English as their second language, it is by no means childish and remains as profound as ever.

Individual volumes cost £1.50 each, however, bear in mind that some books will be over several volumes, dependent on their length and font size, and some volumes will have more than one book within them. Please contact Client Services to help guide you through the process of purchasing these to meet your individual needs.
