I just received The Disciple and Other Poems.
Is the bindery doing an even better job than earlier
or is it just the color that strikes my fancy? This
is a beautiful book! It does exactly what you meant
this series to do—it is perfect! Just seeing
it, holding it, the texture, the smell, just opening
it, is pure book-lover’s pleasure.
This reminds me of you standing in your office,
Mike talking about the idea for these books. Summing
it all up you said, ‘I just want them to be…’
and you had no word to capture it all, but the expression
on your face and gesture of your hand made a word
unnecessary between us.
Well you’ve done it! These books are…
And holding this book in my hand now reminds
me of something I’ve been meaning to say.
Your commitment to publishing these books in this
form is a wonderful thing. It shows once again what
has been manifest all along: that your involvement
in ‘bookselling’ has always been informed
by the riches of the first part of that compound
word, books rather than—as too many
others are, even in Christian bookselling -invested
in the material aims of the second part, selling.
You’re true “publishers” in the
most important sense, in the sense that you are
willing to produce books that simply should exist,
even knowing they will probably lose money or at
best break even. Praise the Lord for everything
that makes this possible.

“Mr. Phillips, who is himself a lover of the
best that is in MacDonald, has scrupulously kept
the flavor and the faith of the Scottish author
intact…His editing consists…of two things:
the simplification of thick highland dialect…and
the gentle curbing of MacDonald’s tendency
to stop and preach…Phillips wields his surgical
pencil so deftly that it hardly leaves a scar…
“The novels take us back to the Scotland of
a hundred years ago when British society was rigidly
stratified and religion was strict and unbending.
The plots are varied and generally quite gripping;
the settings are fresh and vivid.”
