Filament Christian Publishing
At a time of challenge in the book trade with aggressive discounting from online retailers causing many books shops to close, Christian Publishing is very much a success story.
With the growth in Church communities, there is an increasing demand for books which give a Christian perspective to the many challenges of living in a secular society where Faith and Values are very much in the spotlight.
Filament Publishing Ltd was founded in 1999 by Chris Day who was originally a part of one of the world’s largest publishers, Encyclopaedia Britannica. Filament has grown from being a niche publishing house, to one with worldwide distribution including a new division just opened in Australia.
With a growing number of Christian authors coming on board, a new Christian Publishing Division was formed in 2010 in order to provide a service specially tailored to their needs. In 2012, Roy Francis, a past producer of BBC Songs of Praise and a well known figure in Gospel Music circles, joined Filament Christian as Commissioning Editor.
