Some people have an agenda and that is to attack the NIV. I have many documents that bring a strong defense of the NIV. However the latest and perhaps most scholarly is a most excellent book called Has God spoken by Hank Hanegraaf. Although we disagree in matters of Bible prophecy, and the age of the earth, other than those issues Hanegraaf is a great apologist and wrote a good book here. I notice that the NIV is the default translation, and hearing Hanegraaf defend it on the air to callers, I have to wonder if any NIV hater or critic can rebuff this great book? If so please speak, or forever hold your peace.
