    We are looking at getting one of our children a Bible and have considered the NiRV and the ICB.

    Does anyone have experience with these to offer some insight?

    I am aware that the ICB was first the EVD (English Version for the Deaf) and then it became the ICB.

    Here is a link of the text of the ICB: https://www.bible.com/bible/1359/jhn.1

    Unfamiliar with ICB.

    The NiRV is a great translation for kids. Super easy to read. Obviously it is heavy on the dynamic range, but for a young kid it is a great translation. For those who are agaisnt gender neutral language, no need to worry about the NiRV. It avoids that practice.

    Here is the ICB rendition of 2 Thess. 2:13: "Brothers, the Lord loves you. God chose you from the beginning to be saved. So we must always thank God for you. You are saved by the Spirit that makes you holy and by your faith in the truth."

    Not how the text actually reads, but totally consistent with Calvinism. The actual text reads we are chosen through faith in the truth, a conditional election.

    So it seems the ICB would be a great tool to indoctrinate the children of Calvinists.
