Editorial

Welcome to this edition of What’s New, bringing you the latest information about Torch’s literature and services.

In each of the first two editions, we told you about approximately 25 new books from Torch. However, in this issue we have needed to make room for a record number of new titles that you can now purchase from us. To do this, we have changed the magazine’s format slightly and have put the books into categories.

If you need more information about any of the books in the magazine, please ring our Client Services team on 01858 438260 or search on our website at www.torchtrust.org/resources.

God bless,

David Shepherd, Editor
