New TNIV website

According to a note on the website, there is supposed to be an update on July 13 such that visitors to the TNIV site will be redirected to a page on the new, which is the new name for IBS-STL Global.

Biblica is the new name for the merger of IBS (International Bible Society) and STL (Send the Light). The following is the announcement on the new website:

For 200 years International Bible Society (IBS) has been sharing God’s Word around the world. Through two centuries of ministry, IBS has provided Scriptures to soldiers on battlefields, inmates in prisons, immigrants, the poor, and anyone who needs the hope of the Bible.

For 50 years Send the Light (STL) has been taking Christian literature to the farthest reaches of the world, so that people everywhere could encounter Jesus Christ through the gospel message.

In 2007 IBS and STL merged to take the Bible and biblical resources to new places, in more languages, in ways never before envisioned.

IBS-STL moves into a third century of ministry as Biblica. But this is much more than a simple name change. Biblica is driven to reach those who have never experienced the transformational power of God’s Word in ways that uniquely meet their personal needs.

We are motivated by 200 years of passion and commitment to the provision of God’s Word, but with a fresh vision to reach the world with the Bible and resources that bring people into deeper relationship with God.

As you enjoy your time at, we pray that you will engage deeply in God’s Word and join us in sharing it with the world.

    It is interesting that under the “Bibles Online” tab, it doesn’t have the ESV as an option. Zondervan must be trying to ignore the ESV…or they simply forgot about it?

      My takeaway from that menu/page was that the listing included those translations that Zondervan (and IBS?) have published.

    Christian Book Distributors did Zondervan a Favor?…

    Of course I cracked a smile.
