The Soviet Union – the country with the largest land mass in the world – has within its borders over a hundred ethnic groups speaking hundreds of languages and dialects. Stretching nearly halfway around the world (11 time zones) this area represents one of the most diverse mixtures of races and people found anywhere in the world.
And now The Forerunner is appearing in the Russian language. Last April, at Christian Youth International’s Evangelism Training Seminar in Moscow, a staff of over 30 students were assembled who will be writing and distributing a newspaper to the university campuses all across the Soviet Union.
From Moscow to Vladivostok, Riga to Kiev, thousands of Russian speaking university students will be receiving a newspaper declaring that God’s word is sovereign over every area of Soviet life. Passages of scripture with expository teaching will be included in this publication, along with the exciting stories of the throngs of young people who are coming to know God daily.
Soviet students will discover for the first time, the heritage of Russia which is rich in Christian history, as well as principles for the reformation of their government. Articles on science, music, the arts, economics, education – all fields of learning – will be presented from a uniquely Christian perspective.
Two managing editors from Kiev, several journalism majors, artists and photographers from campuses all across the Soviet Union are eager to begin work on this publication. We will be training the staff in workshops to be held at a national leadership conference in Moscow in July, and the editors will receive in depth training for the following three weeks at the main editorial office in Kiev.
How you can help
The workers are ready and waiting. The only remaining need is funding for computer equipment, supplies and staff salaries. This is where you can help! Your tax deductable gift is needed at this time to bring the gospel in printed form to the university campuses of the Soviet Union.
Currently, the exchange rate of American dollars for Soviet rubles is so high that a gift of only $100 can pay a one year salary for one of Soviet students who will be employed as full time staff members. Computer hardware and software, including a laser printer, will also be donated to the Soviet Forerunner. This is your opportunity be a part of the work in one of the most fertile harvest fields in the world today!
There are two ways in which you can help to ensure the success of this valuable effort:
1. Donate a special gift. Computer equipment and other needed supplies are being paid for by individuals through tax deductible gifts. Other costs, such as shipping, mailing and printing, are also going to need to be covered for the first few issues.
2. Buy a subscription to The Forerunner. When you buy a new subscription, renew your subscription, or add a year to your current subscription, a portion of your money will be used to pay for much needed supplies for the Soviet Forerunner. Will you be a part of this important effort?

“When the lives of the unborn are snuffed out, they often feel pain, pain that is long and agonizing.” – President Ronald Reagan to National Religious Broadcasters Convention, January 1981
Ronald Reagan became convinced of this as a result of watching The Silent Scream – a movie he considered so powerful and convicting that he screened it at the White House.
The modern technology of real-time ultrasound now reveals the actual responses of a 12-week old fetus to being aborted. As the unborn child attempts to escape the abortionist’s suction curette, her motions can be seen to become desperately agitated and her heart rate doubles. Her mouth opens – as if to scream – but no sound can come out. Her scream doesn’t have to remain silent, however … not if you will become her voice. This newly re-mastered version features eight language tracks and two bonus videos.
“… a high technology “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” arousing public opinion just as Harriet Beecher Stowe’s 1852 antislavery novel ignited the abolitionist movement.” – Sen. Gordon Humphrey, Time Magazine

Is there a connection between pagan religion and the abortion industry?
This powerful presentation traces the biblical roots of child sacrifice and then delves into the social, political and cultural fall-out that this sin against God and crime against humanity has produced in our beleaguered society.
Conceived as a sequel and update to the 1988 classic, The Massacre of Innocence, the new title, The Abortion Matrix, is entirely fitting. It not only references abortion’s specific target – the sacred matrix where human beings are formed in the womb in the very image of God, but it also implies the existence of a conspiracy, a matrix of seemingly disparate forces that are driving this holocaust.
The occult activity surrounding the abortion industry is exposed with numerous examples. But are these just aberrations, bizarre yet anomalous examples of abortionists who just happen to have ties to modern day witchcraft? Or is this representative of something deeper, more sinister and even endemic to the entire abortion movement?
As the allusion to the film of over a decade ago suggests, the viewer may learn that things are not always as they appear to be. The Abortion Matrix reveals the reality of child-killing and strikes the proper moral chord to move hearts to fulfill the biblical responsibility to rescue those unjustly sentenced to death and to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves (Proverbs 24:11,12; 31:8,9).
Speakers include: George Grant, Peter Hammond, RC Sproul Jr., Paul Jehle, Lou Engle, Rusty Thomas, Flip Benham, Janet Porter and many more.

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.
