The ICMDA World Congress is to be held in Sydney in July 2006.The CMF gave book packs to students and developing world delegates at the World Congress in 2002 and the Eurasian Congress in 2004. At its meeting on 3 December 2005 the Executive Committee agreed in principle to provide complimentary book packs again for the Sydney Congress. However, whether we can do so, will depend on the generous support of members. Please give what you can by sending a donation to CMF marked Sydney book pack appeal. Thank you.
Total sales of Andrew Fergusson’s book have reached 1,200 copies. Christianity described it as ‘thought provoking, challenging and enlightening’. Have you read it yet? Did you buy extra copies to give to friends and colleagues at Christmas?
Until we can offer sales on line, members clearly welcome the convenience of publication offers. Sales by this method have increased seven-fold since this approach was introduced, with each order being worth approximately £23.We hope that total book sales in 2005 will be of the order of £25,000. Alas, CMF books represent a small proportion of total sales.
We have not yet been able to appoint a Senior Editor which is essential if we are to publish books of quality promptly after submission. Three books are in the process of preparation with a fourth being considered. The most advanced (Mad, Bad or Sad) has been delayed further by lack of available in-house resources, though outside editorial assistance has been sought. Please pray for the appointment of a Senior Editor.
