NASHVILLE, TENN. (14 Oct 2013) - As of Sept. 24 and for the first time ever, one of the leading study Bibles - the MacArthur Study Bible - became available in the New International Version (NIV.) With more than 1 million copies distributed since 1997, the MacArthur Study Bible is now accessible in the world's most popular English Bible translation.

Since published by Thomas Nelson Inc. in 2011, the NKJV and NASB versions of the MacArthur Study Bible have outsold all other versions on the market. With Dr. John MacArthur's verse-by-verse teaching, this NIV edition, now published in partnership with Zondervan, is one of the most comprehensive study Bibles available. With detailed commentary, explanations and helpful insights of Biblical truths to live by, the NIV MacArthur Study Bible is expected to quickly reach equal sales levels with the NKJV and NASB.

"I am grateful for the privilege of providing the explanatory notes of the MacArthur Study Bible to those who use and love the NIV," shares Dr. MacArthur, pastor and teacher of Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, Calif. "Having the Word of God is the start. Understanding the Word of God is the goal. The meaning is the message from which all spiritual blessings flow."

"We couldn't be happier or more excited to partner with Dr. MacArthur and to unite his beloved study notes with the best-selling NIV translation," says Chip Brown, Senior Vice President and Bible Group Publisher, HarperCollins Christian Publishing. "The MacArthur Study Bible notes have already had such a tremendous impact on so many Bible readers and it's a privilege to be part of the team spreading this message to a whole new community of NIV readers. We look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship with Dr. MacArthur and pray this Bible enlightens millions of people worldwide."

Written to help transform a reader's study time, Dr. MacArthur provides a clear look at the Scriptures by explaining difficult passages and presenting the Bible in an applicable way. For more information on the NIV MacArthur Study Bible, please visit
