Notes
In 1967 General Synod decreed that the Anglican Book Centre, a perennial money loser until that time, be given a new mandate to become self-sufficient or to shut down. At that time, the Rev. Michael Lloyd, publisher to the Anglican Church of Canadaand director of the Anglican Book Centre (ABC), recalled that "ABC owed the banks about $213,000 and General Synod another $200,000." "Today, ABC not only pays its way, but manages to return money to General Synod every year." "Along the way, ABC has become a successful publisher of books, some of which, by any Canadian standards, qualify as best sellers. In a sense, ABC owes its success as a book publisher to the BAS, something which Mr. Lloyd says he and others foresaw in the mid-1970s. `We felt that a new book of liturgy would be wanted in the next few years and we wanted this book to be produced and published here in Canada rather than us relying on it being published in Great Britain as had always been done in the past,' Mr. Lloyd recalls."

"ABC Publishing will launch a new book imprint as part of the resource production arm of General Synod. Called Path Books, the service will offer books and pamphlets on practical spirituality to enhance everyday living. The first Path Books are to be published later this year. 'Very often people feel that they have to keep life and religion in separate boxes,' said Robert Maclennan, ABC Publishing Manager. 'We want them to discover that Christian spirituality can make a real difference, that it can help people in practical ways'."
