The Accessible Bible

For many of us, reading the Bible is a simple, daily activity, but for millions of individuals with sight loss, learning disabilities or lower levels of literacy, accessing God’s Word can be a real struggle.

Introducing the Accessible Bible…

The Accessible Bible

The Accessible Bible

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and the most powerful book ever written – therefore as an organisation, we remain committed to the development of quality translations and increasing access to this life–changing book.

The NIrV Accessible Edition is one step towards greater Bible access and inclusion within the church, for those who may struggle engaging with the text and formatting of a ‘traditional’ bible. 

Developed in partnership with Livability, Torch Trust and Urban Saints, the NIrV Accessible Edition uses Biblica’s NIrV translation and features:

  • Shorter sentences and simpler language
  • A specially designed (16pt) font
  • More white space
  • Single column setting
  • Simpler navigation
  • Accompanying ebook and audio versions
  • Bespoke illustrations to aid understanding
