"...but try the spirits whether they are of God..." (1 Jno. 4:1)
I am pleased that you have seen fit to view this website. The Bible tells us to "try the spirits whether they are of God" (1 Jno. 4:1) and that is exactly what Challenge is designed to do. There are those out to attack the Bible, the church and anyone who has faith in God and his word. We cannot allow this to slide without standing up and defending what we believe to be the truth.
What is Challenge? Simply stated Challenge is a quarterly publication that is published for the purpose of defending the faith. It is a debate journal. In it you will find articles ranging from Bible inerrancy to internal issues in the church. Both sides are presented fairly in this journal because the other side is allowed to write their own articles. Nothing can be fairer than that. Anyone may submit an article to Challenge, but you need to understand that the opposing side will have the right to respond to your article.
On this site you will find links to the Challenge Page which will give you information about two e-mail discussion lists and how to get on them. You will also find links to back issues of Challenge.
Also on the website of Challenge you will find debates on various issues. These are debates that aren't published in book form. Anyone who desires may download these debates (as well as all issues of Challenge) for their own personal use, however, all publication rights belong to me (Jerry McDonald) and may not be copywrited, sold or changed in anyway from the original.
You will also find a page of links to other websites which deal in apologetic material.
Finally, you will find a page where correspondence is published and carried out on controversial issues.
We thank you for viewing this website and hope that you will return and tell your friends about us.
In Christ's Service,
Jerry D. McDonald
CHALLENGE is published quarterly by Challenge Publications.
