More About Tyndale
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 The One Year Bible Companion?
A great companion resource for in-depth daily Bible readings Mar 9, 2007
This is truly a wonderful blessing! This book adds an extra level of inspiration to study the Bible everyday. I have learned so much more about scripture through this book than I ever learned from Bible readings alone. Kudos!
A good start Mar 8, 2007
The One Year Bible Companion is a good start for bible study. It is very brief, however, and many daily readings need more than its one page format. I often go to other texts in order to get more historical detail, and more importantly to seek the scriptures' meaning in my daily life.
Much more than I expected! Feb 21, 2007
I was expecting only a reading plan with some study guides. And this book certainly has that. But the coordination of scriptures from different parts of the Bible is outstanding. Frankly, I don't know how they managed to do that so well. Each day has a reading from the Old Testament, another from the New Testament, a passage from Psalms, and a short snippet from Proverbs. Their comments are well thought out, and stimulate further reading. There is a section at the beginning to give a summary of each Bible book, including author, date written, content and theme. But the greatest value of the book is its ability to lead you through a daily walk through the Word of God. I bought my copy last November, and have been buying more as gifts for relatives and friends. Highly recommend!
The One Year Bible Companion Jan 11, 2007
Very helpful in understanding some of the Scripture passages.
Not as much as I'd hoped for Dec 29, 2006
Many of the "answers" in this Q&A-format book are gleaned verbatim from the footnotes in the Life Application Study Bible, so if you have one of those, that's strike one. On the plus side, I don't think you can get a One Year Life Application Bible (yet), so this is a good way to put some of the content of that Bible into the One Year format.
Strike two is that there are only 2-4 questions for each day's reading, which means that there often isn't even one question per reading (OT, NT, Psalm, Proverb). And often they aren't exactly the "deepest" questions, either. On the plus side, this brevity keeps the book smaller.
If you're really into the Q&A thing, I recommend a Quest Study Bible -- a cool product with tons of good questions in the margins, great for study, devotion, or impromptu discussion/teaching. Or else you can use the One Year Bible blog to supplement your daily reading. Otherwise, just stick to your One Year Bible and let God's Word do its work.
