If you are participating in an NIV Bible study group, your new version should be pretty similar to the NIV or TNIV version you are already using. According to the Biblica’s “About the New International Version Bible: Update Status/Timeline” page, “about 95% of the text remains exactly the same as the1984 NIV,” but the revised NIV is getting a “fresh focus to the principles that stood behind the original NIV charter, seeking to reproduce, as closely as possible, the reading experience of the original audience. The copyright for the TNIV is held by Biblica, and the NIV and the TNIV is published by Zondervan in the United States. The update status page was accessed February 13, 2011.
