Tyndale House Publishers was founded in 1962 by Kenneth N. Taylor. Concerned that his ten children were having a hard time understanding the familys devotional reading of the old English in the King James Version of the Bible, Taylor paraphrased The Living Bible so they could hear and understand the Scriptures in everyday English. Since then, Tyndale House Publishers has grown to be the leader in Christian fiction, with authors such as Francine Rivers, Joel Rosenberg, and Jerry B. Jenkins, who all share in Tyndales dedication to ministering to the spiritual needs of people through literature consistent with biblical principles. This commitment to quality products, ranging from offering the New Living Translation to integrating faith and sports in books like Tony Dungys Quiet Strength to publishing the Left Behind series, has made Tyndale a permanent fixture on the New York Times Best Sellers List. As a company with a foundation in making the Bible accessible to millions, it is no wonder Tyndales products reach out to every continent in the world.
