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 Handbook of Bible Application (Life Application Reference Library)?
Excellent Biblical Resource for Everyday Issues! Jan 28, 2004
The Handbook of Bible Application is an excellent resource for anyone looking for a biblical perspective on various issues including from abortion to zeal and everything in-between.
The typical format for each issue consists of: 1)listing and definition of the issue, 2) a question concerning the issue (i.e. - how should Christians respond to laziness?), 3) key Bible verses concerning the issue, 4) a few key points for thought concerning the issue, and 5) a listing of related topics.
The handbook is decidedly more of a life-application instead of a scholarly approach. However, the pastor preparing a sermon, the teacher preparing a lesson, or the believer or unbeliever searching for biblical answers can greatly benefit from the title!
All in all, a highly recommended supplement to the Bible!
"What does the Bible say about . . . ?" Turn here first! Jan 7, 2002
If you've ever wanted to study a topic addressed in the Bible or asked the question, "What does the Bible say about . . . ?" then look to this volume first. Unlike a devotional, concordance, Bible index or Bible dictionary, this book focuses on topics. Extremely easy to use, follow and understand, The Handbook of Bible Application addresses some 475 topics. Arranged alphabetically this book is great for personal study, devotions and just general understanding. Be careful, though, you could get hooked on this one. It's a great investment. Use it daily and grow in His Word.
A good reference for your personal library Nov 15, 2001
This book is a good resource for the new Believer, as well as, those who are maturing Christians. Early in my walk with the Lord, this provided necessary guidance and answered many questions I had. Now, I still refer to it occasionally just for additional perspective.
The book takes popular topics, outlines selected Scriptures about the topic, and presents a position on the topics based on the Scriptures used. It does not include all possible Scriptures on a given topic and should not be thought of as a replacement to your own Bible study. (I use this book as a companion to study as nothing replaces utilizing a thorough concordance to look up the Scriptures yourself for a topic.) However, I have found most of the direction on topics to be generally Scripturally sound. Therefore, I think it is a good reference to provide additional perspective to any Bible study.
