The registration system is now open.
You can register today at http://www.spckonlinedebate.org.uk
and up to and including the day of the debate itself, but you are
encouraged to do so earlier rather than later. (If the event becomes
over-subscribed, earlier registrations will have priority.)
The new General Secretary of SPCK Graeme King commented, "The
World Wide Web gives us a tool to enable us to fulfil our Mission to
Promote Christian Knowledge through Education and Literature. SPCK Online
is determined to be seen as a leader in innovation. Our aim has always
been to develop this site in such a way that the human contact is still
apparent. The success of our 'Ask the Bookseller' facility whereby users
can pose questions online to assist them in locating new and out of print
books supports this approach. This is another first for SPCK."
