The NIV Bible Tour
“In may be the largest tour for a new title—a 90-city, 44-state tour called Bible Across America. That is Zondervan’s plan to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the New International Version Bible. A team of four is driving a 42-foot luxury motor home, more than 15,000-miles, criss-crossing the U.S. over the next five months.”
