Frequently Asked Questions

Tyndale welcomes your comments and questions; however, due to the amount of inquiries, we’ve developed this “FAQ” page to answer common questions. Please read this section for information and directions to contact Tyndale.

Authors and Books

I have questions about an author/​how do I contact an author?

For security reasons, Tyndale doesn’t release residential or e‑mail information. You may, however, forward your author messages to:​[Author Name]​c/o Author Relations Coordinator​Tyndale House Publishers​351 Executive Dr.​Carol Stream, IL 60188

How do I submit a manuscript?

Because Tyndale receives an ever-increasing flood of unsolicited manuscripts of which we publish less than one percent, we’ve adopted the following policy: Tyndale no longer reviews unsolicited manuscripts, and we return them to their authors only if adequate postage and a return mailer are provided. Tyndale reviews only manuscripts submitted by professional literary agents, Tyndale authors, authors known to us from other publishers, or other people in the publishing industry.

Please consider the sites below for resources and services regarding manuscript review and submission.

Christian Manuscript Submissions -

This site is an online manuscript submission service for:

  • Authors wanting to present their own book proposals to the leading Christian publishers in the industry.
  • Christian publishers and agents looking for a manageable way to find good authors and great books to publish.
Where can I find an out‑of‑print book

Tyndale does not keep out‑of‑print books. Once a book reaches out‑of‑print status, it is removed from our database and the books are donated to charities, mission groups, etc. A good resource to help you find an out‑of‑print book is

May I obtain donations from Tyndale House Publishers?

Tyndale House receives hundreds of requests for donation of free product. Instead of responding to individual requests, we have chosen to channel excess product to a few select organizations and ministries. We ask that you seek local support or local community help. Here are some other source suggestions that may be able to help:

  • Your local bookstore will often give you a discount on certain products when used for a specific ministry effort.
  • International Bible Society is a great, cost-effective source for books and Bibles.
  • You may find a local non-profit organization that has an established ministry account with Tyndale that you could work through.

We pray that your efforts will find support from people in your community.

Life Application Study Bible App

I bought LASB App from the InApp store, but the download never appeared.

An error can happen during download. Our advice is that you be connected through a stable Wi-Fi connection when downloading.

  • If the “Download” button is visible in the InApp store on the product page, it means that the purchase transaction was completed. You can then just tap the download button and the download will begin immediately.
  • If the “Buy” button is visible on the product page, then you can tap “Buy” again. If Apple already charged you for the product (you received an invoice from Apple), then you will not be charged a second time, and you will be able to download the product.
I have forgotten my Tyndale App Account password.
Please contact the support team through They can reset your password and advise you how to change it.
My InApp purchases disappeared after reinstalling my iPad/iPhone.
Your purchases are backed up by iTunes or iCloud. You can always re‑download the products through the InApp store. If the “Buy” button appears on the product page but you already purchased the product, you can click it again, and Apple will not re‑charge you for the same product.
The application crashes when launched.
Sometimes there is a settings conflict that we have not foreseen in our testing. We hope to resolve the issue you are having in an update to the app. In the meantime, open the “Settings” app, find the Life Application Study Bible settings, and select “Reset settings on next launch.” The app settings will be reset next time you open the app. Your personal journal items are safe and will not be deleted.
Can I use a Bible translation purchased in Pomegrante, OliveTree or other software in the LASB app?
Unfortunately, it is not possible to migrate purchases from other software systems. Tyndale will launch additional Bible applications, and some purchases might be sharable within the Tyndale product range.
I miss this feature.
We are always open to user input. Please forward any suggestions to the development team at

iLumina Bible Software

Where can I find the iLumina Bible Software on

iLumina Bible Software went out of print in 2011 and is no longer available or supported. If you’re interested in digital Bible resources, we recommend exploring our Filament-enabled Bibles and the Filament App, which gives you access to thousands of study notes and devotional articles as well as maps, music, and more.

NLT/Bibles Reference

Can I use the NLT on my website?

To protect the copyright and integrity of the Holy Bible, New Living Translation (NLT), Tyndale has allowed the use of the NLT only on a few select web sites. You may link to those sites. Tyndale’s procedures are to allow individuals, churches, or other sites to link to our site or to one of the main Bible study sites. You have Tyndale’s approval to link to: Your users can go to the search area and view the entire NLT.

The NLT is also available at Requests to place the NLT on other web sites must be declined.

I’d like to suggest a Bible product…
Sometimes products are published through popular demand, so if you have an idea for a Bible or think we should add new features, submit your comments by filling out the contact form. (Note: it doesn’t have to pertain exclusively to the New Living Translation.)
I have questions about the New Living Translation
You’ll find information about the translation, editors, Bible editions, faq’s, and much more at the official NLT website:

How may I get products sent to someone in prison?

There are a number of different restrictions on sending books to prisoners. It is best to do the following:

  • Order and send directly from the publisher unless you are certain the prison allows otherwise.
  • Only send paperback copies. Hardcover books are almost always refused.
  • Send no more than 2 books per box/carton. Larger quantities are almost always refused.
  • Be sure the prisoner alerts the prison to the package ahead of time. If the prison is not expecting a package, it is often refused.
When will a product be released/​Is this product still available?
As much as we try to reach our release dates, sometimes a product is delayed—your patience is appreciated! Also, some highly anticipated books (such as the Left Behind series) require a ‘street date’ to ensure fair sales practices across the country. A release date may delay the actual sale of a book, until all retailers have received their shipments. If there are any questions about this policy or the availability of Tyndale products, please submit an inquiry.
