Mission Sunday and Apologetics Press

On their website, Apologetics Press gives their history as follows: “In the late 1970s, there was a need to make available more scripturally sound and scientifically accurate materials in the field of Christian apologetics. The idea for Apologetics Press was born – an idea that soon became a reality. The necessary legal steps then were taken to allow the work to be recognized as non-profit and tax-exempt by both State and Federal governments. In 1985, Apologetics Press moved into its own custom-built, 11,000-square-foot building that was debt free upon completion. Financial records are managed by certified public accountants, who also submit to the appropriate agencies all documentation required by State and Federal law.”

Dr. David Miller, who serves as AP’s Executive Director, points out that “Apologetics Press has existed for over 36 years for the purpose of producing materials that assist in waging the culture war that is upon us. We began with a primary emphasis on combating atheism, skepticism, and evolution. This focus included demonstrating the existence of God, the inspiration of the Bible, the validity of the Bible account of Creation, and the falsity and unscientific nature of atheism and evolution. As atheism and evolution have taken their toll on American civilization, our outreach has gradually expanded to include a host of additional subjects including the following: Ethical issues facing our society (e.g., cloning, euthanasia, abortion, homosexuality, end-of-life decisions, etc.) Dinosaurs—the icon of evolution; Design in the Universe; The accurate transmission of the Bible; The reliability of the Bible; The challenge of world religions like Islam; Doctrinal confusion that exists within Christendom; The assault on the Christian values and moral principles of America that hark back to the founding of the country.”

At the present time we are supporting Kyle Butt, one of the members of the writing staff, at Apologetics Press. Kyle is a graduate of Freed-Hardeman University, where he earned a B.A. with a double major in Bible and Communication, an M.A. in New Testament Studies, and a M.Div. with a concentration in Apologetics. He has authored or co-authored 28 books and done numerous DVD projects. He has been involved in 3 major debates with unbelievers and speaks frequently around the world on Christian Evidences. He has served in the Bible Department at Apologetics Press for the last 17 years and is the editor of the AP children’s monthly publication, Discovery.

If we are going to be able to continue our support for this and other good works, we need to reach our goal this year of $122,000 on Mission Sunday. If we want to pick up support for other work, we need to be able to give even more. Please give serious consideration to what you can give on this day, May 7, 2017, so that we may aid in helping the work of Christ and His church to move forward.
