In the past, The Forerunner was geared toward Christians who understood biblical worldview, revival and reformation. But we also included apologetics and distributed it to college students. Christians supported the publication and it was also used in evangelism. The website has given a lot of the older articles a life of their own. Several popular articles now have more single page accesses than we printed copies of The Forerunner in it’s entire history.
While I am happy with the way my publications have turned out, I know that I could have done a lot better if there were a larger team of people who could have contributed something in their own area of excellence — more writers, graphics and design, distribution and so on. My area of expertise is mainly content.
With The Boston Awakening magazine, I now have the vision to produce a seamless media ministry that would begin with a magazine that has an anointed prophetic word combined with smart graphics and attractive photography. And then make this available on the Internet through PDF and HTML. From there I would produce a news magazine DVD that would also be available on the Internet through podcasting, streaming video, and new video technologies just around the corner.
For instance, in doing the magazine, my vision has expanded and I am full of ideas. I see a larger multi-faceted media concept unfolding from this — print publishing, DVDs, on-line video, web sites, and so on.
1. The Boston Awakening Magazine (print version)
2. The on-line PDF version
3. The website
4. The Boston Awakening DVD
5. The on-line streaming video clips from the DVD
6. The live multi-media teaching seminar
The list goes on. The optimal plan involves starting several “Media Houses” in various parts of the U.S. and the world, which would be college students who would work part-time on one of the components and freely share their work with the Media House network. My role in this would be traveling and teaching students to preach the Gospel through media.
I don’t see it as my project, but something that will grow out naturally of the youth revival — which will spread world-wide as media technologies become more and more seamless — one medium being easily converted to another — language translation becoming easier through technology — and so on.
I don’t have the time here to explain it all and my vision is growing each day anyway. Hopefully, God will give me the energy and inspiration to keep it up.
What you are doing through music is an important part of this and you ought to seek as much as possible to integrate what you are doing with other types of media, in other languages, through many different channels.
More to come …

Special Two-Disc Set!
After 40 years of intense study and world-wide ministry, Dr. Francis Schaeffer completed his crowning work of scholarship – to present profound truths in simple film language. Dr. Schaeffer’s brilliant analysis of the past and predictions for current trends have proven so uncannily accurate that this amazing series still feels contemporary almost three decades after its initial release. Ultimately, Schaeffer concludes that man’s only hope is a return to God’s Biblical absolute, the truth revealed in Christ through the Scriptures.
Available for the first time on DVD, this documentary spectacular also includes intimate in-depth conversations with Francis and Edith Schaeffer. With the on-disc study guide, this presentation forms a unique course of comprehensive study. While this series forms an innovative analysis of the past, this outstanding work is more than history. Each episode focuses on a significant era, yet speaks clearly to 21st-century man with answers for modern problems.

Exposing The Occult Roots of Abortion
This presentation looks at the spiritual roots of abortion and exposes the myths surrounding child killing. Little known historical facts about abortion and how they relate to modern feminism are presented logically and accurately. Has been effective in converting many to a pro-life position.
Massacre of Innocence goes where no pro-life presentation has gone before in “tearing the lid off abortion” to reveal the spiritual realities we must battle if we will bring an end to this crime. The presentation is absorbing, fast-paced, informative and incredibly devastating to any attempt to justify abortion.
“… an extraordinary statement … a powerfully articulate presentation about what abortion really means, and why a great and moral nation like the United States must not allow the slaughter to continue.”
— Congressman Robert K. Dornan

Foundations in Biblical Eschatology
By Jay Rogers, Larry Waugh, Rodney Stortz, Joseph Meiring. High quality paperback, 167 pages.
All Christians believe that their great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, will one day return. Although we cannot know the exact time of His return, what exactly did Jesus mean when he spoke of the signs of His coming (Mat. 24)? How are we to interpret the prophecies in Isaiah regarding the time when “the earth will be full of the knowledge of the LORD as the waters cover the sea” (Isa. 11:19)? Should we expect a time of great tribulation and apostasy or revival and reformation before the Lord returns? Is the devil bound now, and are the saints reigning with Christ? Did you know that there are four hermeneutical approaches to the book of Daniel and Revelation?
These and many more questions are dealt with by four authors as they present the four views on the millennium. Each view is then critiqued by the other three authors.

Who is the dreaded beast of Revelation?
Now at last, a plausible candidate for this personification of evil incarnate has been identified (or re-identified). Ken Gentry’s insightful analysis of scripture and history is likely to revolutionize your understanding of the book of Revelation — and even more importantly — amplify and energize your entire Christian worldview!
Historical footage and other graphics are used to illustrate the lecture Dr. Gentry presented at the 1999 Ligonier Conference in Orlando, Florida. It is followed by a one-hour question and answer session addressing the key concerns and objections typically raised in response to his position. This presentation also features an introduction that touches on not only the confusion and controversy surrounding this issue — but just why it may well be one of the most significant issues facing the Church today.
Ideal for group meetings, personal Bible study — for anyone who wants to understand the historical context of John’s famous letter “… to the seven churches which are in Asia.” (Revelation 1:4)
