The Accessible Bible

For many, reading the Bible is a simple, daily activity, but for millions of individuals, accessing God’s Word can be a real struggle.

Many people with sight loss, learning disabilities or lower levels of literacy find accessing God’s Word difficult due to the formatting of the Bible. Scroll through the images below to see the inside of the 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
