Creator of The Living Bible, Dies
WHEATON, Ill., June 10 -- Tyndale House Publishers founder Kenneth Taylor, whose The Living Bible helped millions of people discover they could read and understand Scripture, died today, Friday, June 10 at age 88 in his Wheaton home.

The Living Bible was born out of Taylor's deep desire for his ten children to understand God's Word. He found the King James Version of the Bible -- the most commonly used translation at the time -- especially difficult for his young children to understand.

Taylor began to reword specific passages in simple, conversational language, easy enough for even his youngest child to grasp. He finished his paraphrase of the New Testament epistles in 1962, but could interest no publisher in his project, which he called "Living Letters." Taylor and his wife, Margaret, decided to self-publish 2,000 copies of "Living Letters."

Taylor named his fledgling company Tyndale House ...

Wasn't the KJV translated by "Oxbridge" High Church Anglicans? They probably had little use for Presbys or Independents.

Back to the subject, it is better to stick with formal equivalence, although God can use even a questionable paraphrase to make people wise unto salvation, His Word is that powerful.

I think that anyone who has read the scriptures will find that a strongs concordance helpful to translate certain words or phrases from the original language to todays english. Yes read the living bible, then read the King James version a very trustworthy translation. Don't chastise people for reading a certain version of the bible. A love for the word of God will lead him/her to what the Holy Spirit knows is right.

Hmmm.

"Taylor began to reword specific passages in simple, conversational language, easy enough for even his youngest child to grasp. He finished his paraphrase of the New Testament epistles in 1962, but could interest no publisher in his project, which he called "Living Letters.""

"Taylor was born on May 8, 1917, in Portland, Ore., to George and Charlotte Huff Taylor. Due in large part to his pastor father and godly mother, Taylor developed a solid faith in Christ and a deep respect for the Bible at a very young age. He graduated from Wheaton College (Wheaton, Ill.) in 1938, attended Dallas Theological Seminary for three years, and graduated from Northern Baptist Seminary (Chicago, Ill.) in 1944."

Sure wish they would have called it, "Kenneth Taylor' Commentary and Opinion of the Scriptures" rather than the Living Bible.

Taking a faithful translation to make it conform to a man's presupposition of what God says is a commentary, certain not a faithful translation of the Bible.

Those independents sure get their way!
