New International Version Inclusive Language Edition

The New International Version Inclusive Language Edition (NIVI) of the Christian Bible was an inclusive language version of the New International Version (NIV). It was published by Hodder and Stoughton (a subsidiary of Lagardere Publishing) in London in 1996 and was only released in the UK, and has now been discontinued.

In 1997, an article by World Magazine accused the NIVI of being "a feminist seduction of the evangelical church". This led to a protest in evangelical circles, led by James Dobson. Despite a number of evangelicals coming to the defense of the NIVI, Zondervan responded by not releasing the NIVI in the United States.[1]
