Seeking to place biblical perspectives onto the opinion pages of the America's secular newspapers, the Lansing, Michigan-based Amy Foundation is launching one of the first newspaper syndicates available on the Internet.

Dubbed "Real Answers," the columns will seek to provide spiritual insight on current issues and problems. "Our nation is in a deepening spiritual and moral crisis," says Foundation president Jim Russell. "The Amy Internet columns will provide clearly defined spiritual and moral direction."

Starting this month, two new columns are being provided weekly at the Amy Foundation Web site ( "These value principles have proven to be historically effective in restoring a character of faith, obedience, and love," Russell says.

The nonprofit Amy Foundation is known in evangelical circles for its Amy Writing Awards, which honor biblically based articles published in the secular print media (CT, June 21, 1993, p. 30). The syndicate so far has about 20 writers, including William Mattox, columnist and member of USA Today's board of contributors, and Indianapolis News editor Russell Pulliam. Columns will be available free to daily newspapers.
