From the desk of Gary DeMar:
2019 has turned out to be a great year for American Vision. We’ve been busier than ever. That’s a good thing. I spoke with a friend this week who told me that he’s been seeing AV’s material everywhere.
There’s a great deal of cross-pollination going on with other ministries. People who are watching Apologia Studios are connecting with American Vision. This is good news since Apologia is catering to a younger audience. I’m glad to see these new ministries being successful.
AV has gotten Last Days Madness back in print. Wars and Rumors of Wars is at the printer. I’m in the process of putting the final touches on my new book The Rapture and the Fig Tree Generation. This is all new material. I cover topics that have never been fully developed. There’s still a lot of work to do in the area of eschatology. Additionally, I have been working on a book for some time titled How Evangelicalism Lost Its Way and Helped Lose a Nation. I go back several decades to show the bad theological seeds that had been sown that have led to our present predicament: cultural indifference, the rejection of God’s law, and eschatological defeatism, to name just three.
Greg Bahnsen’s book on defending the faith is in the final stages of editing. This book (yet to be titled) is important because it serves an audience that is unaware of Greg’s work and how essential it is in this day of sloppy thinking. Because these talks were originally given to a high school and college audience, the material is more accessible.
One more thing: A podcast is on the way. We set up a studio at American Vision using equipment we had on hand. So much has changed on the delivery of audio and video. If we are going to beat the media at their own game, we need countless outlets for information. It all can be done with a smart phone and basic editing software.
I continue to write five articles each week as well as produce material for future book projects. There are several speaking engagements planned for 2020. I’ll let you know more about them as the dates get closer.
As is always the case, American Vision could use your financial support. We love writing the content, doing the research, and creating the products, but all of this costs money. One of the powerful testimonies at American Vision is that we have been operating as a ministry since the late 1970s. While we have had a few major donations over the years, what has really sustained this ministry for more than 40 years are the regular monthly gifts from regular faithful donors.
We value your trust and partnership with us and take our obligation to be frugal with your donations very seriously. Every bit helps and every donation is tax-deductible. Of course, you can also help by purchasing products, directly funding a project, or with a one-time gift.
Thank you for standing with us. There are great things to come in 2020…
Grace and Mercy for the New Year,
