‘For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her.’ (Proverbs 8:11, NIV)
Wisdom is treasure. Better than treasure, as Proverbs suggests, for it can be found by reading and meditating on the Word of God in the Bible. The New International Version is celebrating its fortieth anniversary, and this shimmering, ruby-themed Thinline Bible is one of a trio of special editions published to mark the occasion.
The cover is made from an attractive dark red imitation leather which shimmers as it catches the light.
The Bible has a removable paper presentation wrapper, over a flexible cover. It includes one ribbon marker, a presentation page and a red elastic strap closure.
First published in British English in 1979, the New International Version is the world’s most popular modern English Bible. It is renowned for its combination of reliability and readability and is ideal for personal reading, public teaching and group study.
