The following is the deletion note; 02:23, 26 May 2008 John Reaves (Talk | contribs) deleted "Send the Light" ? (non notable comapny)

Send the Light is a global company, and not having an entry in Wikipedia would really be unthinkable. I do have a real question as to its deletion - I know that an earlier entry prior to deletion was critical of one of the leading lights of STL - was their pressure to delete it?

No one is pressured to delete anything. It must be established "why its subject is important or significant" as per WP:CSD. Every company is not listed on Wikipedia - Wikipedia is not the Yellow Pages. Though, I'm inclined to think that with the third party publications listed in the bibliography, this article satisfies the notability criteria. Mvjs (talk) 07:09, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks Osjknights (talk) 07:10, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

There was controversy over the merger, and I was seeking to find an article which covered this subject - hence coming to Wikipedia. A further section needs adding covering the controversy. Also how do I can access to back copies of the deleted wiki entry? - as there was at least one gem of information, which whilst back then was not substantiated (and ought not to be cited), will allow research to follow up the issues Dr Michael Foster Osjknights (talk) 07:15, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

If you desire to obtain a copy of a deleted article, ask in administrator in this category. Mvjs (talk) 11:25, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

I got hold of the deleted page - plus the comment for which I was looking - many thanks. Also it is the only article I have found on the Internet which provides the year it separated from Operation Mobilisation (1988) - so my plea is to keep the Entry, which is a useful resource to anyone seeking to learn about the issues surrounding the Christian book and bible trade. STL is a major player. Thanks Dr Michael Foster Osjknights (talk) 14:32, 4 July 2008 (UTC)

On the deleted page, under "Rise to Prominence" this sentence was included in reference to Keith Danby; He was not popular with everyone in the Christian retail trade and referred to the many independent Christian bookshops saying "they need us more than we need them". I am seeking to gain a reference to this assertion - if anyone can help - please do. Osjknights (talk) 16:39, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Taming the TigerEdit

I have removed a recent addition concerning the book Taming the Tiger. Such a claim would be better suited to an article on Authentic Media, if that were to exist. StAnselm (talk) 08:50, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

I added the information here about Authentic Media's all-time best-selling book Taming the Tiger (see Tony Anthony) after it was removed from the page about current owners of Authentic Koorong. The book was first published at a time when Authentic was owned by Send the Light and is by far and away the biggest success they ever had. The page on Tony Anthony and references highlight Authentic's role in his ministry. Authentic Media has no independent existence, so it appears entirely relevant for this information to appear either on this page (since this was the biggest book to come out of Authentic during its time as part of STL) or on the page of Koorong, the owners at the time of the controversy.
