$40k press

THE Bible Society of the South Pacific has achieved its dream of owning a printing house.

The printing house was launched at Nabua last Friday.

Society general secretary Solomone Duru said it cost about $40,000 to set up the project.

"This printing press is run by a staff member.

"And now we can save money and time as we embark on this new project for the Bible Society."

Mr Duru said it usually took up to six months for Christian books to get to Fiji which they then distributed throughout the region.

"We used to publish our books and booklets in China, Korea and Indonesia.

"The issue of accessibility used to challenge us, and how do we make the word of God accessible to the people who can't get their hands on them because they stay in remote places and in the rural areas?"

Methodist Church general secretary Reverend Tevita Nawadra said Christian publishing went hand in hand with Christian mission work.

"This is part and parcel of doing God's mission, publishing God's work," he said.

The MagiMagi Publishers will be useful for individual writers who want to print small quantities of books at a cheap price.
