Biblica announces expanded partnership around Nueva Versión International (NVI) Bible

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Dec. 1, 2017 — Biblica, The International Bible Society has announced the expansion of distribution partners for the Nueva Versión International (NVI) Bible. In addition to long-term partner, Vida-Zondervan, Biblica has recently agreed to partner with Lifeway Publishers to provide even greater access to God’s Word in a contemporary translation for Spanish speakers.

For over 15 years, Biblica and Vida-Zondervan have successfully partnered to bring the NVI to  readers and churches worldwide.  Biblica is excited to add Lifeway to their publishing strategy in an effort to increase distribution and opportunities for more people to engage in the NVI throughout the region.

“I believe there will be more impact and an expanded reach, thanks to this agreement,” says Esteban Fernandez, Biblica’s Area Executive Director of Latin America. “We expect God to do great things.”

Biblica looks forward to seeing more lives touched by Christ through His Word as this new and exciting publishing partnership moves forward.

“When contemporary translations of the Bible are placed in people’s hands, it has the power to change everything in their life – it’s the living Word of God! Through the expansion of our publishing partnership of Biblica, Vida-Zondervan and Lifeway, we are thrilled to see the Word of God reach more people.” said Stephen Cave, Biblica’s Chief Ministry Officer.

Biblica provides the Bible in accurate, contemporary translations and formats so that more people around the world can have the opportunity to be transformed by Jesus Christ. We do this through Bible Translation, Bible Access, and Bible engagement programs. Biblica has stewarded God’s Word for more than 200 years. We believe that when the Bible is placed in someone’s hands, it has the power to change everything.
