The Gideons International

The Gideons International is an organization that distributes Bibles to hotels, motels, students, first responders, prisoners, the military, etc. Generally the Gideons have used the King James Version in their work. At times the Gideons have also used other versions as well. These versions are listed here.

Comments:FlexCover 12mo; sewn binding. 766 pp. British spelling. »N. I. V. text used by agreement with Hodder and Stoughton.«
Scripture text in single column and bold print, which is way better to read than the eye- inflaming print in the NIE (above); all poetic parts, Psalms etc. in ciolometric print; no extras except paragraph headings. Appendixes start with page 2; Scripture text with p. 52.
In the "Acknowledgements" we read: " The followin changes [are] incorporated in this special edition:
"1. The omission of the footnotes in both the Old and New Testaments (which formed an integral part of the original translation).

2. The incorporation into the text in the following instances of certain alternative readings which formed part of the footnotes in the original translation: John 1.14, 18; John 3:16, 18; Acts 13:33; Hebrews 1:5; Hebrews 5:5 and 1 John 4:9.

3. The incorporation into the text of the New Testament of certain verses which formed part of the footnotes in the original translation. These verses have been placed in corner brackets." [Just to name a few: Mat. 6:13b and the "comma Iohanneum" 1 John 5:7, to incorporate readings that are borrowed from the Majority text.]

Birnbaum's remark: Not clear is since when Gideons in Britain had the "special NIV" printed. This 2012 edition was edited after (!) the publication of the 2011 update of the NIV. Other than in the U.S. predecessor NIE, the British Gideons have clearly pointed out, that there are a textual differences between the standard NIV and their "modification".

Comments: Cloth board 12mo, sewn binding; (8) & 866 pp. Bible paper; 2 coloured maps.
This is an early copy of the German Edition published when the German Gideons still were supervised through West–Berlin by their U.S.- mother. This first Gideon NT is basically a so called "Senfkorn- Testament" ("Mustard Grain" - Testament), produced for the reader, who wanted a small size NT plus Psalms for his pocket. The Gideons obtained it completely from the Stuttgart printing office of the Württembergische Bibelanstalt, who embossed the Gideons logo "Torch in Trumpet" on the cloth board. This "Mustard- Grain" Testament has all the extras of the regular edition: Single- column scripture text, cross references within text and in the margin, paragraph references and headings and two coloured maps. The Gideons could afford it only until February of 1963, it was just too expensive.
The NT- text is that of the then latest revision of 1956, the Psalm- text dates from 1912, as the OT revision of the Luther Bible was finished only in 1964.

With the year 2014 Gideons Germany changed their policy regarding the usage of translations. Now the traditional "Lutherbibel" has been replaced by the "NeueLuther Bibel", which is a private revision of the 1912 "neu durchgesehene" (=newly revised) version; it started its life in late 1994 (Gospels & Acts) and was completed in 2009. The Greek behind it is the Textus receptus, the "Received text". The traditional Luther- bibles past 1912 are translated after the Nestle and, later the Nestle- Aland NT Graece.

With the year 2014 Gideons Germany changed their policy regarding the usage of translations. The "NeueLuther Bibel" is meant for the traditional reader; this "bibel.heute"- edition by K.-H. Vanheiden is more towards a paraphrase and intended for younger readers. The New Testament was completed in 2003, the Psalms in 2008, the entire Bible was published in 2010.

The original Bible book "bibel.heute" was called »NeÜ – Neue evangelistische Übertragung [=New evangelistic Rendering], when the NT was published in 2003, the title being changed with the advent of the Psalms and the complete Bible in 2008 and 2010 to »NeÜ – Neue evangelistische Übersetzung [=New evangelistic Translation]:
»Newly translated with the help of German- and English - language translations and commentaries and with regard to the original text« [= Alexandrian text type/ group, not the Textus receptus or Majority text].
