A vast public collection of real-life rejection
It sounds like they're saying: "Dear Madame, I currently maintain two piles of manuscripts on my desk. The first contains the pieces we plan to publish. As it turns out, your manuscript resides in the other pile." As if it's totally out of their control or something...
At first I interpreted this as the work was not suited for Tyndale (they're focused on conservative evangelical Christian readers, as I recall—I used to work for a company which did their CD-ROM products), but reading it again, I'm realizing it's a painfully awkward way of saying no.
