ICLnet owes a profound thanks to the people at CRI International for allowing us to place this archive and the former CRI-ARTICLES distribution list on the internet beginning in 1994. Through this archive we have met many of the most concerned, diligent, and friendly people we have ever met. Among those who command our most respect (and who was most instrumental in securing CRI files for you and I) is Rich Poll who is, in Christian form, the standard that this writer aspires to be some day.

Rich, has begun a new ministry on the internet. The apologetics ministry, named Apologia, hosts a discussion group based at GospelCom called ARTALKApologia has also formed, and is promoting, an authorative information service, Apologia Report, which is distribued on-line, and may also be gotten in paper format.

All of the information provided through these services is based on years of apologetics and publishing experience by Rich Poll. For more information about these Apologia and its work, we highly recommend visiting Apologia’s internet site at http://apologia.org/.
