As we were developing the new edition of Christianity Explored, we decided we wanted to launch a website that would mirror the course – a website that assumed no prior knowledge of the Bible, aimed to answer tough questions, walk people through Mark’s Gospel, and let Jesus do as much of the talking (and get as much of the glory) as possible.
So here it is. You’ll find some great videos on there from Tim Keller, Kevin DeYoung, Vaughan Roberts and others. The official launch is today, and we’d love your feedback to make it as helpful for you (+friends +work colleagues +family) as possible. Leave a comment below, either positive or negative, and we’ll tweak it over the coming months.
Here’s what Kevin DeYoung said of the new site:
Besides looking sharp, the website has several nice features (this is not a paid advertisement by the way).
- The content is delivered through dozens of short videos. The videos are also transcribed for those who want to read the material.
- There are three main areas to the site. One part answers the question, “What is Christianity?” A second part contains short answers to tough questions. The third area includes real stories of personal faith.
- The site is not mainly about the CE program. Obviously, you can find information about the course, but the site is primarily an evangelistic tool meant to come alongside local churches in their gospel ministry. This is not a CE promo site, but a good resource for introducing people to Christianity.
It’s been a privilege working on the content with Carl Laferton at The Good Book Company (who has done an incredible job in next to no time). Phil, Johnny and Tom at the GBC have also been terrific pulling this together. And thanks to Internet Dreams for their lovely coding.
Update: John Piper has also tweeted about the new CE website: “I found this new site very hard to leave. It’s meant to help unbelievers. The ‘Real Life Stories’ rivet.”
