What's New at CES


October 2014: Announcing the CES Press Publishing Imprint — Get Published Through CES. Have you dreamed of getting your work published? Perhaps you’ve thought of publishing your thesis, or dissertation, or one of your other works.
On October 15, 2014, Columbia Evangelical Seminary launched a new publishing endeavor that will help you do just that. In partnership with Redemption Press of Enumclaw, WA., we have created our own publishing imprint: CES Press.

Five Percent Discount — In our partnership with Redemption Press, they will offer CES graduates, students, and faculty a five percent discount on à la carte publishing services under the CES Imprint for qualifying books. Furthermore, Redemption Press will host a CES Press online store and CES authors will be given preferential rates for publishing services.

What if you are not a CES graduate, student, or faculty member?
If you are not a CES graduate, student, or faculty member, Redemption Press is still offering a 5% discount on publishing—just not under the CES Imprint—to all who simply contact them and tell them that they heard about the discount through CES. So, when you call or contact them, be sure to tell them that Columbia Evangelical Seminary sent you and get a 5% discount from Redemption Press.
