It’s also 100% voluntary and 100% for the public benefit, which in my view makes it 100% charity — but let’s not go there right now. It’s been brought to my attention that some visitors may be under the impression that this blog is affiliated to or perhaps formally endorsed by the BA Christian Booksellers Group: it isn’t.
Whilst I myself am a member of the group’s executive committee and very much appreciate the group’s encouragement, I am first of all an independent bookseller, currently employed by London School of Theology (LST) to manage their on-campus bookstore. I run UKCBD entirely off my own bat, however, and — unless otherwise explicitly stated — nothing posted here should be taken as representing the views of either the BA or LST (or, for that matter, Christian Marketplace magazine, to which I am a contributor).
If you’re a newcomer, you may have missed this blog’s About page: most blogs have them; always worth checking out. You’ll find a link in the navigation bar at the top of every page: please do take a moment to familiarise yourself with it. Here’s an excerpt:
UKCBD, the UK Christian Bookshops Directory, is an independent, voluntarily maintained project which exists to promote the Christian faith by providing a two-way resource to the Christian community: an easy way to find your nearest Christian Bookshop, and an easy way for Christian Bookshops to get online.
For more detailed information about the site’s ownership and operating principles, please see Whose blog is this, anyway?
And from that page:
Please also note that opinions expressed are those of the contributors concerned: they should not be taken as representing the views of any particular group or organisation unless otherwise stated. In particular, my own comments are mine and mine alone: I do not speak on behalf of either the BA or LST.
All opinions expressed are those of the individual contributors concerned and should not be taken as representing the views of any particular group or organisation unless otherwise stated. For further clarification please see: Whose blog is this, anyway?
I trust that this clarifies the situation but if you have any further questions about these matters, please either leave a comment on this post or contact me privately.
