  • The Story

    The “Greatest Story Ever Told” is more than just a cliché. God goes to great lengths to rescue lost and hurting people.
    That is what The Story is all about—the story of the Bible, God’s great love affair with humanity.
    Condensed into 31 accessible chapters, The Story sweeps you into the unfolding progression of Bible characters and events from Genesis to Revelation. Using the clear, accessible text of the NIV Bible, it allows the stories, poems, and teachings of the Bible to read like a novel.

  • The Journey Bible

    The NIV Journey Bible is uniquely designed to help you discover the practical aspects of Christianity and better understand God. Patterned after the Willow Creek model of ministry and intended for those in the investigative stage of their spiritual journey, The Journey’s exploratory approach addresses key questions inquisitive readers may have about the Bible and its relevance today. Notes and insights are woven throughout the complete NIV Bible text, drawing readers into the message and pointing the way to a relationship with Jesus.
