Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., was founded in 1962 by editor and author Dr. Kenneth N. Taylor. Concerned that his ten children weren't understanding the family's devotional reading of the 17th-century English in the King James Version of the Bible, Taylor wrote what has become The Living Bible so they could hear and understand the Scriptures in everyday English. In 1962, Taylor exhibited his self-published Living Letters at the Christian Booksellers Association convention. The following spring Billy Graham saw a copy of Living Letters and decided to purchase copies and offer them on the telecasts of his crusades. Half a million copies were given away through the Graham crusades. Ken Taylor's dream had become a reality and more -- a publishing entity had been born. -- from Tyndale House's Corporate profile.

These are not abstract opinions, but rather serious, committed, and honest attempts to confront the urgent and contemporary questions of skeptics, of believers, of himself, and of his God...
