The production of new books has proved challenging in the absence of a senior editor. Although the Executive Committee has agreed in principle to this appointment, it has been on hold due to the lack of a suitable person, the major organisational review and budgetary constraints.Without such an appointment, new publications cannot be produced in a timely manner. As a short term measure Dr Rachael Pickering is working in a part time capacity on Triple Helix and Dr Bob Carling has been editing Mad, Bad, Sad.
Hard Questions about Health and Healing
Dr Andrew Fergusson's excellent book was published in April 2005 and continues to sell well. 1,300 copies have been sold to date. Have you bought a copy for yourself and for colleagues?
Mad, Bad or Sad
The editing of Mad, Bad and Sad is almost complete and the book is expected to be published by September 2006.
Cure for Life
A further reprint of Bernard Palmer's book Cure for Life is being undertaken with copies being available in the late summer.
Autobiography of Dr Marjorie Foyle
The CMF has agreed to publish Dr Foyle's autobiography in the Autumn. It is a great missionary story!
CMF has agreed to publish Dr Janet Goodall's thought provoking book on Psalm 23. It is hoped that this will be available in time to become CMF's Christmas 2006 book!
Mailing of journals to missionary members
CMF regularly mails journals to missionary members serving abroad. The current position is that:
- 90 members receive Tropical Doctor at a cost of £3,150;
