New books on their way to Canada
Clear and Simple Media is pleased to announce completion of one of our most significant (and challenging) publication projects. Print runs on three books – Travel Guide to the Bible, Simple Stories, and Simple Truths for the New Believer have been completed and 22,000 books are on their way to Canada.
All three books are written in a simplified English style. All three books target English-as-a-Second Language (ESL) readers, and particularly those with little or no exposure to the Bible. These books were written to be easy to read and easy to translate, making them even more accessible to readers of other languages.
This shipment of 22,000 books includes copies of our evangelical catechism (Simple Truths for New Believers) translated and printed in 14 languages other than English. This particular printing will make these books available to churches in North America to provide a useable tool as they seek to reach immigrants and refugees that are arriving in Canada and the United States in increasing numbers.
This print run includes 1,000 books in each of the following languages: Arabic, Bengali, Chinese, Farsi, French, German, Haitian Creole, Hindi, Indonesian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese. Also included in this shipment are 1,000 copies of the Travel Guide to the Bible and 500 copies of the newest CSM title, Simple Stories. Simple Stories is a collection of thirty-two stories that “tell the story of the Bible from the beginning to the new beginning.”
