The New Century Version of the Bible is a revision of the International Children's Bible. The ICB is aimed at young readers and those with low reading skills/limited vocabulary in English. It is written at a 3rd grade level (from the introduction) and is both conservative and evangelical in tone. The New Testament was first published in 1978 and the Old Testament followed in 1986. The ICB was revised somewhat to be a bit more sophisticated (reading level grade 5) and was dubbed the New Century Version. This revised version was first published in 1991.

Recently, the New Century Version text has been combined with notes containing advice on teenage issues to form "The Youth Bible", and was updated in 2007. The NCV is now available as a stand alone version.

Also available as a New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs version known as "Clean; A Recovery Companion"
