Trinitarian Bible Society
Founded in 1831 for the circulation of Protestant or uncorrupted versions of the Word of God The object of this Society is to promote the Glory of God and the salvation of men, by circulating, both at home and abroad, in dependence on the Divine blessing, the HOLY SCRIPTURES, which are given by inspiration of God, and are able to make men wise unto salvation, through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

Burgon, Dean John William
John William Burgon (1813-1888) was a man of tremendous intellect and ranks among men such a Lancelot Andrews (1555-1626) and Robert Dick Wilson (1856-1930) in scholarship. He became the Dean of Chichester and has since been known as "Dean" Burgon. Dr. Burgon was contemporary with Westcott and Hort. He was an advocate of the Textus Receptus and was the nemesis of Westcott and Hort's feeble arguments against it. He believed, unlike Westcott and Hort, in basing all conclusions on the solid foundation of facts rather than the sand of theory. He would leave no stone unturned in his quest for truth and no blow undelivered in his defense of it.

Waite, Yvonne Sanborn
Yvonne Sanborn Waite, is the wife of  Dr. D. A. Waite, Founder and Director of THE BIBLE FOR TODAY.  They were married in 1948, near Berea, Ohio, in the church of her girlhood.  She is the mother of five adult children (four sons and one daughter) and, at present, has eight grandchildren.

Yvonne Sanborn Waite and her husband graduated from Berea High School in 1945. In 1948, she  graduated from the Moody Bible Institute, the same year Dr. Waite received his baccalaureate degree from the University of Michigan.

Throughout the years, Yvonne Sanborn Waite has assisted her husband while he was a seminary student, a college teacher, a Navy chaplain, a pastor, a radio personality, an editor, an author, and the President of the Dean Burgon Society.

Her readers may know her through The Bible For Today Update, a letter which is sent monthly to contributors to the BFT ministry.  Her column, From the Tent Door, has been read by thousands and her radio program, Just For Women has been heard by thousands more.  Perhaps she is best known by her portrayals of two devotional hymn writers, Fanny Jane Crosby and Frances Ridley Havergal.  In 1996, she was given an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree by the Great Plains Baptist Divinity School in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Besides being The Bible For Today's videographer and making hundreds of videos of her husband's teaching and that of others also, she has taught "Husband-Loving Lessons" to many women who have told her they have been helped greatly.  She is available as a devotional speaker for women's groups, and sings and plays the piano when requested.

According to the Scripture, Yvonne Sanborn Waite feels she is in the "bonus" years of her life (Psalm 90:10), and her desire is to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in every way He leads before she "flies away."  "The lines are fallen unto [her] in pleasant places; yea, [she has] a goodly heritage."  (Psalm 16:6)

Waite Jr., Mr. D.A.
The oldest of five children, Donald A. Waite, Jr. was born in Dallas, Texas. As the son of a long-time graduate student/itinerant Naval Chaplain/ordained Baptist minister, he and his family re-located frequently. When they moved to Collingswood, NJ, to live in his ninth house, he never dreamed that they would establish such deep roots there. In 1967, he graduated from Collingswood High School (his 10th school).

School number eleven was Bob Jones University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Humanities (1971) and a Master of Arts in Theology (1973) with an emphasis in New Testament Greek. While at Bob Jones University, he met his wife-to-be, Jeanette Ann Lazar. They were married in Cleveland, Ohio in 1971.

He has served as deacon, long-time Sunday school teacher, pulpit supply, camp counselor, and in various other church ministries. He currently serves as the treasurer of the Dean Burgon Society and as trustee and treasurer of the Bible for Today. Although he has written various other pamphlets and articles, his longest work is his 1994 Reading Ease of the King James Bible (277 pages). In 1996, he wrote a summary of that work entitled The Comparative Readability of the Authorized Version (84 pages). In 1999 he began to work full-time for the Bible For Today.

He lives in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland with his wife Jeanette and their two children--Elizabeth and Rebecca.
