More About Tyndale House Publishers
Tyndale House is a publisher founded in 1962 by Kenneth N. Taylor, in order to publish his paraphrase of the Epistles, which he had composed while commuting to work at Moody Press in Chicago. The book appeared under the title Living Letters, and received a television endorsement from Billy Graham. This ensured the book's great success, and in 1971 Tyndale published Taylor's complete Living Bible. Taylor named the company after William Tyndale, whose English translation of the New Testament was first printed in 1526. The current president of Tyndale House is Mark D. Taylor.
During the first nine years of Tyndale's history, Kenneth N. Taylor continued paraphrasing the text of the Bible. Living Letters was followed by Living Prophecies (1965) and The Living New Testament (1967). Finally, The Living Bible was launched in 1971. According to Publishers Weekly, it was the bestselling book in the United States in the years 1972-74. The Living Bible was published in many different editions and binding styles, including a popular youth edition called The Way and a study edition called The Life Application Study Bible.
Today, Tyndale publishes a wide range of books by conservative Christian authors such as James Dobson, Charles Colson, Francine Rivers, Karen Kingsbury, and Joel C. Rosenberg. Its most successful publication in recent years has been the Left Behind series of novels by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins, which is one of the best-selling book series in history with more than 60 million copies in print. Recently it has had a string of very successful sports-related titles by such coaches and athletes as Tony Dungy, Joe Gibbs, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, Emmitt Smith, Jim Tressel, Gene Chizik, Shawn Johnson, and Deanna Favre.
In 2007, Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy reached No. 1 on the New York Times hardcover, non-fiction list. It spent more than 30 weeks on either the primary or extended list, and has sold well more than one million copies. It is one of the best-selling sports-related titles in history.
Subsequent books by Dungy, including Uncommon (2009), The Mentor Leader (2010), and The One Year Uncommon Life Daily Challenge (2011), have all reached the New York Times best sellers list.
Tyndale first non-fiction book to reach No. 1 on the New York Times hardcover, non-fiction list was Let's Roll, by Lisa Beamer. Beamer (born April 10, 1969 in Albany, New York) is the widow of Todd Beamer, a victim of the United Flight 93 crash as part of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States.
In 1996 Tyndale House released a new English translation of the Bible under the title New Living Translation (NLT). While its predecessor, The Living Bible, was a paraphrase, the NLT is a translation that was created by a team of 90 Hebrew and Greek scholars. The NLT copyright belongs to Tyndale House Foundation. A major revision of the NLT, aimed at making the translation more precise, was finished in 2004, and editions published after this date are known as the NLT2, or the NLTse — "se" standing for Second Edition. A third revision in 2007 made minor alterations that had been suggested by the Translation Committee

Good Buy Jan 18, 2007
This bible is great for kids ages 7 and up. The activities it purposes are easy, and help to commit the story to memory. The bible itself is easy to read and understand. I highly recommend this bible for any one intrested in teaching or learning from the bible.
An excellent interpretation of the Word of God Jan 9, 2007
Originally, this book was a gift for my grandson by one of his elementary school teachers--ordered on this site.com. I started reading the book and could not put it down. Because we live in separate housing, I realized that I wanted this book for my own. Even if you have spiritual interpretation of the scriptures, this book explains the scriptures in layman's terms for today. Try The Hands On Bible for yourself and you will realize the truth that is magnificently displayed. You, as well as, your children will have a clear understanding of so many things that we have been so ignorant of.
First time Bible reader Nov 6, 2006
My 12 year old grandchild attended Vacation Bible School for the first time this summer. She has never had a Bible and she found this one to be well organized and in fairly simple terms. She reads it often (for her)...she hates reading, so I am pleased with the product.
LOVE IT! Aug 28, 2006
This is a great Bible. Straight word of God with easy wording for kids. this site has the cheapest price for new copies on the internet today. Even buying the bibles from the Group (publisher), you'll pay 15.99 for HUGE quantities or 19.99 for just one. This is a steal when you consider the free shipping bonus!
Fun alive and really applicable Oct 10, 2005
If you have a child between 6-12, this is THE Bible to get. The new living translation really brings the Bible to life and is written simply. Learning about Jesus shouldn't be complicated but simple to understand! It also shows the kids how to apply the Bible in their lives. I love the KJV but have found it a hard read at times, not so with this. It also has a daily reading list for kids along with a question to answer to get them thinking. In addition, it has a family devotion section which is great for the family to get involved!There are fun facts, a time line, and object lessons to help them relate that hey can do easily at home. It's packed with fun so that kids can learn in a fun involved way!
