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 Holy Bible: Catholic Reference Edition (Burgundy Imitation Leather)?
Easy to read Translation!!! Apr 29, 2005
The New Living Translation is not a translation per say, but is a paraphrase; the gist of the message is still there, but there are so many GOOD translations out there you don't need this one. I perfer The Revised Standard, The New Revised Standard, The American and The Douey Versions (all cathloic Versions). Also, For easy to read and more accurate translations I would look into the English Standard Version and the Holman Christian Bible. if you like the Living for readability also get one of the aboved mentioned for study.
Excellent Translation Even Without the Imprimatur Sep 8, 2004
I know this doesn't have the Imprimatur of the Roman Catholic Church, but it's still an excellent translation. This tranlation was created by 90 Evanglical Christian bible scholars, so it's an accurate thought for thought translation that is enjoyable to read. In fact, thought for thought translations can convey the meaning much better than a word for word translation. I keep my NAB study bible handy when I need to read the footnotes or compare texts. If you're not a bible scholar or don't plan to be one for a career, this will make your bible reading enjoyable. I follow a two year bible reading plan that takes you through the entire bible in a two year period. It's from Carmen Rojas and can also be used for a one and three year reading plan. This booklet can also be purchased on this site.com and can help keep you on track with your daily bible reading. Remember what St. Jerome said...ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ.
It's great Sep 12, 2003
I don't know why the Bishops would have any reservations about this edition given the problematic issues surrounding various editions of the official NAB translation. This is a wonderful translation. So it isn't the official one used at Mass - it speaks more clearly than the NAB which sounds much like the NASB when read from the ambo. I can understand the Bishops wanting a standard translation for the Sacred Liturgy. However, for Bible study and reading of the Sacred text, the NLT is great. I prefer the advice of Billy Graham. When asked which translation is best he wisely replied "which ever one you'll read." AMEN.
Love it Aug 1, 2003
No one needs the Vatican's approval to create a Catholic version of the Bible. They only need to include all texts used by Catholics. As a Catholic, I happen to like this version very much and often drag both it AND my St. Joseph's NAB around to compare text during both Bible study and individual study. It's a lovely translation. Very easy to grasp on days when my brain is very tired.
Version not approved by Vatican or U.S. Catholic Bishops. Jun 28, 2003
Not a proper translation! In a memo circulated in May 2003 to all bishops in the United States the chairman of the US bishops Committee on Review of Scripture Translations said The Holy Bible: New Living Translation, Catholic Reference Edition has not been approved by the U.S. bishops or the Vatican. This approval is required by Church law. Tyndale is aware that the translation lacks Catholic approval but is continuing to sell the book and represent it as Catholic!
