I would like very much to know the exact orgins of the NIV. If I believe the preface of my NIV Bible. It seems it was created from Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic texts. Which in fact the KJV 1611 Bible is too. I own one of these too. What bothers me is this. I have heard that the NIV beginnings were less than let's say Godly. Could someone please shead some light for me here?
