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

Reviews - What do customers think about KJV/NLT2 Peoples Parallel Bible-Black Bond?
Parallel Bible Jan 22, 2007
I purchased this Bible for a Christmas gift. I received it timely. I could not find in the purchase description if it was a red letter edition or not; so I assumed it could be red-letter. It was not. Also, most Bibles have Holy Bible written on the cover, this one does not. It looks rather plain. The parallel scriptures were very good. The receiver of my gift liked it, since he really wanted the parallel scriptures more than anything else anyway; so I am pleased.
A very nice Bible Jan 17, 2007
The more I carry this Bible, the more I like it. The binding does not smell like leather, but it has a very soft and high quality feel to it; the two tone stitched cover is stylish but still somewhat conservative. The NLT translation is the improved second edition. There are no cross-references in the text, but there are a few helps at the front of the Bible. The helps include a one-year reading plan, a subject based topical index and a short list of Bible promises. Although I am not sure about the font size, it appears to be about 8 point. I have not had any difficulty reading it, but I do not require large print. (yet) I am very pleased with this Bible and find it perfect for its intended use. My church emphasizes the KJV, but often I find it helpful to have an easy to read translation handy. In my opinion, this is a very nice Bible.
