Next year, 2011, will be the 400th anniversary of the publishing of the first King James Bible, AKA the Authorised Version.
I plan to celebrate by purchasing a 2011 NIV Bible and reading it!
The nice thing right now is that you can already read the new NIV text online at BibleGateway.com.
(Now I just hope Zondervan et.al. comes up with some excellent covers/formats early on in production.)
