Sunset for Kenneth Taylor

Publisher and author Kenneth Taylor, 88, died Wednesday. Taylor founded Tyndale House after finding no publishers for his Scripture paraphrase, Living Letters, which later expanded to The Living Bible. He also launched the Christian Booksellers Association.

His son-in-law, Tim Bayly, is posting thoughts on Taylor and his passing at his blog. I love this quotation of Robertson McQuilkin’s poem, “Let Me Get Home Before Dark.”

It’s sundown, Lord.
The shadows of my life stretch back
into the dimness of the years long spent.
I fear not death, for that grim foe betrays himself at last,
thrusting me forever into life:
Life with you, unsoiled and free.
But I do fear.
