It is a mild understatement to suggest that we are in the midst of an information age. It seems that everywhere you look, someone is bombarding you with additional information. Some of it you may find useful; some of it you may find useless. Some of it you may enjoy; some of it you may not. But there it is, nevertheless.
We would like to announce some information that we hope you will find both useful and enjoyable. For the past several months, we have been working to establish a presence for Apologetics Press on the World Wide Web. While we realize this always will be a work in progress, we believe that our efforts will be worthwhile. And we hope that you, our readers, will agree.
In October of 1996, we hired Charles McCown as our Manager of Information Systems. Charles is an intelligent, hard-working young man with a keen interest in, and insight into, the world of computers. As soon as his foot hit the front door, he began working to accomplish all that we wanted doneand a whole lot more! Working with Trevor Major, our Director of Scientific Information (no computer slouch himself!), Charles designed a new in-house computer software system to be used in managing our subscription lists for Reason & Revelation and Discovery. He studied and mastered our typesetting procedures, in an effort to fine tune both of our monthly journals. He designed advertisements for almost all of our publications. And, last but not least, he worked with Trevor to create and maintain a high-quality, professional site for Apologetics Press on the World Wide Web. We would like to use our note from the editors this month not only to commend Trevor and Charles for their success, but to introduce the Apologetics Press web site to our readers.
When you access the home page, here is a sampling of what you will find. First, there is a section that explains the work of Apologetics Press, and discusses the mission, goals, etc. Second, our entire catalog is available to peruse at leisure. Third, past issues of Reason & Revelation are available. Currently, all issues from 1994-1997 are on-line, as well as selected issues from previous years (e.g., those referenced in the 1994-1997 articles). Fourth, there is a sample issue of Discovery. (We do not post each months issue; due to Discoverys extensive color and graphics, we feel we cannot do the publication justice while providing acceptable download times.) Fifth, children will appreciate the fact that we are in the process of placing the Digger Doug sections from Discovery on the Web site. Digger Doug is our famous (and extremely popular!) mole who serves as a sleuth to dig out answers to kids questions. His responses now can be accessed through the A.P. home page. Sixth, the Web site features links to other sites that contain information we felt might be valuable to our readers (e.g., other creationist organizations, etc.). Seventh, the site features a search function that allows readers to research the content more easily. In the future, we will be including additional items as well. But for now, we invite you to come visit us at: www.ApologeticsPress.org. See you there!
