Links - Page 1

Our links pages are two-fold, having differing purposes. Like the difference between a magazine stand and a reference library so too do our two links pages seek to satisfy our needs for both the everyday search for information and the lifelong study for knowledge.

Our first page is meant to offer very handy, practical information dealing with the needs we face everyday as Christians. On this page we group together those best of the best places on the internet we have found helpful regarding personal interests, family topics, discernment in entertainment, shopping, and basic Bible study, among others.

On Page 2 we have collected websites of a broader and deeper theological nature. The second page is intended for those interested in serious Biblical study involving a wide array of biblical, theological, philosophical, archeological, and historical topics.

A blue exclamation point (!) means we like this link best in a section. If you only have time for one link this is it.

Disclaimer: Remember, God leads us all a little differently. We need His discernment to know the good from the bad. Although in general we have found these sites helpful it does not constitute a total endorsement on our part of their philosophy or practices. Some sites are secular in nature and this needs to be taken into consideration. Exercise your own judgment. Report any problems to us for review.
