International (MNN) — As the demand grows for digital books,
Biblica, formerly IBS-STL, will now be offering e-book through authenticpublishing.com.
"Our passion is to equip the missional community with great
content," said Biblica marketing director Mike Dworak on their Web site. "With
our e-books, people anywhere in the world have the ability to select a book and
be reading in seconds."
This new format will allow Biblica to impact even more of
the Christian community. Digital formats will enable Christians to access
titles in places where print costs are too expensive or Christian materials are
"Digital downloads can provide isolated believers with
essential resources," according to Biblica's Web site.
These e-books are available in Kindle and MobiPocket
formats, as well as PDF downloads. So far, Biblica already has more than 70
popular titles available.
"Although publishers worldwide have reported shrinking book
sales during the global recession, e-book sales have been exploding," according to the Biblica.
As they celebrate their launch, Authentic Books is offering a
free missions e-book at their Web site: "The Missional Mind," along with a free monthly
e-newsletter and an excerpt from the new Operational World missions handbook.
In addition to this, all books come with a satisfaction guarantee,
and if customers are unhappy, their books will be replaced for free.
"Digital media is increasingly in demand from consumers who
want or need a nonprint book format," Dworak said. "Eventually we plan to have
all of our titles available in digital format."
Authentic Publishing is a division of Biblica, and you can visit
their Web site at authenticpublishing.com.
Biblica's vision, according to their Web site, "is to
transform lives through God's Word by translating, producing and distributing
Bibles, Scripture materials and other Christian resources through ministry,
distribution and retail channels so people around the world may become
disciples of Jesus Christ."
