In 1931, Zondervan Bible publishing was born in the Grandville, Michigan, family home of Pat and Bernie Zondervan. Zondervan quickly became an established and trusted source for Christian content, and in 1971, the company was approached by the Committee on Bible Translation (CBT) to be the sole North American licensee for the New International Translation. Zondervan published the full NIV Bible for the first time in 1978. Within a decade, it became the bestselling English-language version of the Bible, a position it holds to this day.
Zondervan also publishes the New Revised Standard Version, the New American Standard Bible, and the Amplified version.
