We are pleased to present the Easter 2019 issue of the CLIS E-Newsletter which we hope you will find of interest. Please click here to read this issue.
The issue includes a brief report of our ‘Publishers and Robots’ annual conference held in Oxford on Saturday 6 April 2019 with our guest speakers Manoj Raithatha and Dr. Nigel Crook. There is also a reminder of our forthcoming guided tour of the British Museum planned for Wednesday afternoon 15 May 2019. There is still time to book a place.
Our speaker Manoj Raithatha is the proprietor of the publishing company Instant Apostle and we highlight a recent book from this company which tells the story of a night shelter for homeless people provided by churches in Barking and Dagenham. We announce the theme of this year’s Libraries Week in October and encourage members to get involved.
We announce a new edition of a ground-breaking version of the Bible, produced by one of our past speakers, and publicise a new course which will help Christian students make the transition from college or university to working life. We also mention a new edition of a book which we suggest should be essential reading for members of Christian professional groups.
We highlight a forthcoming film based on the life of J.R.R. Tolkien and take note of recent press items about an addition ro C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia written by a well known writer and Christian. Sadly, this book is unlikely to be published commercially unless permission can be obtained from the Lewis estate.
This issue comes with best wishes for Holy Week and Easter from the officers and executive committee of CLIS. Chris is risen indeed!
