01: For the first time in its long history, The Yearbook of American and Canadian Churches will offer comprehensive online material.
Using a grant from the Lilly Endowment of Indianapolis, Indiana, the editors are offering CD-ROM and Web-based materials to supplement its annual volume due out on Feb. 1, 1999. The new software will bring together for the first time all the church membership and financial information of the 67 years of the Yearbook’s publishing history.
For more information, write: Dept. of Communications, National Council of Churches, 475 Riiverside Dr., New York, NY 10115-0050

02: We are still offering the new book Shopping for Faith: Religion in the New Millennium to RW subscribers at the rock bottom price of $18 (the regular cost is $25).
While this price includes postage for U.S. readers, this is not the case for Canadian and foreign subscribers. Canadians ordering the book should include $3 for postage; foreign readers should add $7 for air mail delivery. All payments should be made out to Religion Watch through a U.S. bank or by money order.
