Just bought the whole TNIV yesterday in hardback. Started in Genesis and am going to read the whole thing through. So, I am reserving judgement.
Re: NGSB. I was under the impression they originally wanted to do it in the NAS but ran into snags, and then got stuck into the NKJ(which is an excellent trans).
I just hope when the ESV one comes out in March, the PRINT won't be so abominable.
