had advanced in favor with himself? We invite Mr. Jackson to answer these perplexing questions, but his past record of refusing such invitations, tells us that he will probably refuse this one too. *********************************** SILENCE... scrutiny. So when they are offered the chance to defend Bible inerrancy in any kind of forum where they will be confronted by an informed opposition, they refuse it. They prefer to confine their efforts to captive pulpit audi- ences and one-sided religious journals. They prefer silence in fantasyland to publicly giving a "reason for the hope that is in them" (1 Pet. 3:15). ************************************** SETH... Jackson with an offer to simultaneously publish his response to it. He did not accept. (He, in fact, returned without comment the $3 that I included to renew my subscription to his paper.) Anyone wishing to contact him about this or any of the other matters on which we have quoted him in TSR may do so at P. O. Box 55265, Stockton, CA 95205. ****************************************** NON-PROFIT RECOGNITION Skepticism, Inc., the official publisher of The Skeptical Review, has been recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a non-profit organization. This is important to us, because of the substantial reduction in postage rates that we are now entitled to, but it is also important to some of our readers. Although we do not make direct appeals for financial assistance, some of you have included contributions with your orders and subscription renewals. We want you to know that your help is appreciated, but we also want you to know that you can deduct your contributions on your income tax returns. ****************************************** A NEW FORMAT With this issue of TSR, we are changing the format from 12 pages to 16. This has made it possible to publish two entire articles ("Did They Tarry in the City?" and "What Happened to the Resurrected Saints?") that we could not have included in the old 12-page format. There will be no increase in the subscription cost. ******************************************** BACK ISSUES All eight back issues from Winter 1990 are available at $1 per copy ppd. ********************************************* SECOND DEAVER-TILL DEBATE CANCELED While arranging their debate in San Marcos, Texas, Mac Deaver and Far- 1 rell Till agreed to conduct a second debate on the same subject (Bible morali- ty) in Central Illinois. After initiating correspondence to negotiate the time, place, and format of the second debate, Farrell Till received a letter from Deaver, dated October 17,1991, in which he said, "I no longer have any interest in debating you in the near future." In the San Marcos debate, Till forced Deaver to say that every act of killing an Amalekite baby (1 Sam. 15) was a morally good act. Perhaps he has decided that he does not want to be put into that position again. At any rate, the second debate has apparently been unilaterally canceled. The San Marcos debate was recorded by Thomas Gardner, 2229 Lotus, Ft. Worth, TX 76111 (Tel. 817-838-0828). The last information we had both audio ($15) and video tapes ($30) were still available. If any TSR readers doubt that belief in Bible inerrancy will force one to defend the killing of babies, they should listen to these tapes. ******************************** FREE SUBSCRIPTION: A free one-year subscription to The Skeptical Review can be obtained by writing to P. O. Box 617, Canton, IL 61520-0617. 2
