I am interested in an e-version (stand-alone or available in Logos Bible Software or even Kindle or a pdf file) of the New International Reader's Version. 

I am helping with teaching at a state facility and the Bible version available to the young prisoners (about a 3rd grade reading level) has already been selected as the NIRV. The prisoners have NIRV paperback bibles available. I would like to be able to prepare lessons and handouts (perhaps someday even project a searchable pdf or other document or use software without active internet connection which is forbidden on property) using the NIRV so the text will correspond with what they have in their hands. 

I can open the NIRV on BibleGateway or other on-line software and then copy/paste verses just fine while preparing a lesson, but I am seeking a downloadable version so I can access a full Bible in this version without an internet connection (which is forbidden onsite).

I don't see the NIRV available in my Faithlife Library 

Logos Bible Software 8.17 SR-3
8.17.0.0022

 Can someone kindly help provide some help so I can effectively minister to the least of these?

Of course I am also interested in any Bible curriculum or Youth Prison Christian curriculum suitable for this audience.

Welcome Big Smile

Searching Faithlife Ebooks for NIRV => https://ebooks.faithlife.com/search?query=NIRV&sortBy=Relevance&limit=60&page=1&filters=status-live_Status&ownership=unowned&geographicAvailability=availableToMe&autoFacets=0  finds some resources that may be helpful for curriculum.

Also suggest contacting Prison Fellowship (PF) to inquire if their Academy curriculum has a youthful variant. PF Academy goal is Bible application as a number inside prison have Bible knowledge (lot of time to read) while lacking practical application: e.g. how to live in love.

Another Faithlife Ebooks search is Prison => https://ebooks.faithlife.com/search?query=Prison&sortBy=Relevance&limit=60&page=1&filters=status-live_Status&ownership=unowned&geographicAvailability=availableToMe&autoFacets=0  as culture inside prison is different.

One state has inside adult residents helping with youthful ones (video calls, ...). Note: to me, every "offender" residing inside prison is a resident, the result of someone's sin choices.

Another organizational contact is CMCA (Correction Ministries & Chaplains Association) => https://www.cmcainternational.org/

FYI: if like more email spam, then public posting of email address helps (otherwise can remove email from posting & follow thread so any replies are emailed to you).

Keep Smiling Smile
