Tyndale House Publishers celebrated its golden anniversary last week, officially marking 50 years of publishing.
As a corporation owned by the Tyndale House Foundation, the company continues to operate under the mission statement first spelled out by Tyndale executives more than 30 years ago: To minister to the spiritual needs of people, primarily through literature consistent with biblical principles.
“We have worked with thousands of wonderful authors. Many hundreds of faithful employees have been on our team. We have published untold millions of copies of books and Bibles,” recalled Mark D. Taylor, who has served as Tyndale’s President since 1984.
“Through it all, we have attempted to be faithful to our mission. And now our challenge is to stay true to that mission as we move forward into an ever-changing world,” he added.
To celebrate the anniversary, Tyndale has developed a special landing page on its website that serves as a central place to collect and showcase the company’s rich history. It also features a virtual birthday card where friends of Tyndale can share their greetings or upload a picture or video. The publisher is also compiling a commemorative gift book, The Tyndale House 50th Anniversary Reader, as a limited edition for private distribution to employees, key retailers, and industry leaders.
