Hi folks,

 

I am looking for a downloadable New International Version compatible with the e-sword version 7 I am currently using. Help Please?

 

Daniel.

Unfortunately, the NIV is still under copy right, so the only legal source for an NIV module is estudy source, and they only distribute materiel that is compatible with  the current version of e-sword.

 

There are, of course, bootleg copies out there, some of them are likely good copies.

 

Rather than stir the still glowing embers of the "God's word should be free" verses  the "A Christian should respect the property  both physical and intellectual of others" war, I will say no more.


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
 

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.

only $25?

 

Ah, excuse me, but the fully legal Kindle version of NIV seems to be available on Amazon for $3.25.

 

And a number of paperback editions are also affordable, not much more than Kindle. So can someone help me (and others) understand the seemingly high cost of electronic products for esword?

 

Thanks,

Steve

e-Sword does not set the prices for premium modules. eStudySource.com does since they have permission and licence  from the copyright holder ( International Bible Society) to distribute it in that format.

Hi Steve,

When you buy the NIV, you don't just get the NIV, you also get the NIrV (New International readers Version) with it. Before you use to be able get the TNIV in the bundle, but this translation has been discontinued by the looks of it. So, considering that you get both the NIV and the NIrV in one hit, then the price you pay isn't really all that expensive.

 

Moreover, the reason for these "lower" prices is because of Amazon being an extremely large company that has the capacity to mark their prices down to the bare bone.

 


And a number of paperback editions are also affordable, not much more than Kindle.

 

As true as this may be, it is only to a certain extent. What you seem to be leaving out and failing to mention that these are very cheap editions. If you want to buy leather a bound Study Bible, i.e., NIV Life Application Study Bible, or something similar, then you would be paying for something that is in well in excess of a mere $25 for only one copy.

 

I don't have a huge income by any stretch of the imagination, however, US$25 (approx NZ$31) isn't a really bad deal for two Bibles.

 

Blessings,

The NIrV is frequently used as a childrens translation, as it is about a third grade read.  

 

I bought my copy of the NIV set when it was the NIV, NIrV and TNIV (Today's NIV), as APsit190 pointed out the TNIV seems to have disappeared


Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)
