Aside from our own souls, hardly anything in this world matters more to those of us who are Christian parents or grandparents than the souls of our children and grandchildren. Twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, we strive to keep them as far from the world, and as close to God, as possible. We at Apologetics Press take the matter of childrens souls very seriously. In fact, one of our goals is to do all we can, with what we can, while we can, to protect the souls of our children and grandchildren. To lose one is to lose too many!
Therefore, in January 1990, we began publishing Discovery, a beautiful, eight-page, full-color monthly magazine on Scripture and science for children. Currently, more than 8,000 children receive Discovery every month. Each issue contains intriguing, faith-building articleswritten by dedicated Christiansabout Gods Word and Gods world. Discovery has been a tremendous success story.
But we at Apologetics Press never have been ones to rest on our laurelsespecially where the souls of our children or grandchildren are concerned. Therefore, it is with a great deal of pleasure, some seemingly appropriate fanfare, and yes, even a little personal pride, that I announce our new Web site for childrenDiscoveryMagazine.com!
My staff has been working diligently on the new site for months. Much of the credit for the dream finally becoming reality goes to Trevor Major, our Director of Scientific Information. As editor of Discovery, Trevor personally designed the site, selected the materials to be included on it, and did much of the electronic file preparation necessary to make it work. Assisting him have been Charles McCown, our Production Manager, Jim Estabrook, our General Manager, and Sam Estabrook, our Manager of Information Systems. [Ive heard it said that a truly intelligent man surrounds himself with people who are smarter than he is. I, therefore, must be truly intelligentbecause my staff is nothing short of brilliant!] Each of these dedicated Christians deserves a vote of thanks for the long hours and hard work that have been devoted to the new Web site.
When you log on, I think you will be thrilled at what you find. For example, one of kids favorite Discovery features is our slinking sleuth, Digger Doug. When kids have questions, our friendly mole digs deep to find the answers for them. All the questions Digger Doug has received to date (almost 100!) are listedand answeredon the Web site. Mountains of fascinating information, and hours of great reading, await every child (or adult!) who visits the site.
In addition, there is a section that answers frequently asked questions about Discovery, a sample issue of the magazine, a form you can use to request a free printed issue, a subscription form, etc. And this is only the first tier of a three-tiered approach we are taking in building the site. In the not-too-distant future, we will be adding materials that can be downloaded by children (or Bible class teachers), plus interactive instructional materials. Visit us at www.DiscoveryMagazine.com. [The .org and .net suffixes will take you to our site as well, as we own all three domain names.] Come visit us at www.ApologeticsPress.org, too.
