InterVarsity Purchasing Biblica Book Division

From IVP’s Andy LePeau on Tuesday:

InterVarsity Press has announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Biblica Books, the book-publishing arm of Biblica Worldwide.

This includes Operation World, the definitive global prayer guide that’s now in its seventh edition.

Biblica has translated the Bible into more than 100 languages and is the translation sponsor and publisher of the New International Version® (NIV) Bible, the most widely read and trusted contemporary English translation. It recently made a strategic decision to narrow its focus to the Bible, and went in search for the right strategic publisher to take on its book-publishing portfolio.

    Love the cat and dog theology paradigm. Have even used it evangelistically as I walk my dog in the neighbourhood…

    Describing the NIV as the most widely read Bible translation may well be correct, but most widely trusted? Presumably no one at IVP USA reads Tom Wright… (in the C of E we tend to use the NRSV).
