Ken Taylor Joins the Ages

CT announces that the author of The Living Bible died yesterday @ 88.

Today, there are zillions of translations and Study Bibles. But in 1971 when the full Living Bible, a paraphrase of the Scriptures, was published, there were relatively few. I find a multiplicity of Bible versions helpful in that sometimes variant phrasing will give you a different nuance - or even interpretation - of a passage. Surely Taylor did us all some good, though some criticized.
