About the Author
While beginning his publishing career as an editor at InterVarsity Press and then director of Moody Press, Dr. Taylor wrote several children's books in the 1950's. Born out of experience with his own ten children, Stories for the Children's Hour, The Bible in Pictures for Little Eyes, and others are now being enjoyed by a second generation of children. My First Bible in Pictures was included in Publishers Weekly's list of "All-Time Best-Selling Children's Books" in 2001. His love for children (including his 28 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren) continues to inspire new titles.
In fact, it was his children, in their confusion over the meaning of the King James text, who prompted his mission to make the Bible understandable for everyone. Dr. Taylor's Living Letters, a thought-for-thought translation of the New Testament epistles, was published by the newly formed Tyndale House Publishers in 1962. The complete Living Bible followed in 1971 and has now sold over 40 million copies in its many editions.
In 1996 Tyndale House introduced the New Living Translation. In keeping with Dr. Taylor's vision of Scriptures that everyone can read, the New Living Translation is a thought-for-thought translation that is exegetically accurate and idiomatically authoritative. Ninety of today's leading Bible scholars worked with Tyndale House to develop this easy-to-understand translation.
With Dr. Taylor as Chairman of the Board, Tyndale has become one of the top evangelical publishers in America and today publishes books, several Bible lines, periodicals, videos, and specialty products. During the past forty years, Tyndale House has distributed over 100 million Bibles, New Testaments, and Bible portions worldwide.
Dr. Taylor has used the success of The Living Bible to further his mission by distributing all its royalties to Christian ministries worldwide. He founded Living Bibles International (which merged in 1992 with the International Bible Society) for translating, publishing, and distributing modern-language versions of the Bible around the world. His life of service has been recognized with at least 30 honors and awards from different organizations, including four honorary doctorates. In October 2000, Dr. and Mrs. (Margaret) Taylor were awarded the Distinguished Service to Family Award by Wheaton College.
A graduate of Wheaton College, with graduate studies at Dallas Theological Seminary and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Taylor has held 15 directorships with Christian organizations at home and abroad. He and Mrs. Taylor live in Wheaton, Illinois.
