Meet our Authors: Francis Etheredge – December 2018

Francis Etheredge is a lecturer, poet, philosopher, and influential Catholic writer. Throughout his long and distinguished life he has contributed articles to a number of journals on the intersection of ethics and Catholicism, and he is a regular writer for Catholic publications such as The Catholic Times and The Catholic Universe.

In 2016, Francis published his magnum opus with Cambridge Scholars Publishing, the culmination of a lifetime of thinking and writing about religion and philosophy. Released in three volumes, From Truth and truth is an exhilarating tour through philosophy, reason, experience, faith, and numerous other themes both ancient and modern. Prior to this, Francis also published Scripture: A Unique Word, a multifarious exploration of the nature and meaning of scripture today.

Francis outlines his experiences of working with Cambridge Scholars on these projects, and how his own approach to thinking and writing has developed as a result:

“The first book I published with Cambridge Scholars was Scripture: A Unique Word, and reflecting on the process the various people with whom I worked were very responsive and, altogether, helped me to establish a ‘book style’ which has been foundational for subsequent work. As the book included a dedicated exploration of the opening lines of the Hebrew text, a marvellously literary work communicating a wonderful combination of analogy and mystery, I offered my own Hebrew-word design for the cover. This resulted in a highly interactive process of suggestions and refinements with Cambridge Scholars’ design team, which, in due course, culminated in a book that I am more than pleased with.

“I then began writing full time, and we eventually collaborated on another book, my From Truth and truth. It was originally supposed to be a single book, but as I assembled the material it evolved into a trilogy. Cambridge Scholars were very flexible and positive towards these changes, and we developed a strong marketing campaign for the trilogy including posters and book advertisements.

“Now, two years on, Cambridge Scholars continue to support the marketing and publicity of my books. We are developing a ‘Christmas package’ with reviews and blog posts, with a view to benefitting writer and publisher alike. This is testament to their approach to their authors, and I am delighted that they continue to support me in these ways.”
