One of the Best Bible Study Resources on the WWW

Not everyone is able to be physically involved in taking the gospel to the world. Case in point, one of my best friends, Mark Copeland. Circumstances have not allowed him to travel to foreign fields, though he hopes one day to have the opportunity.

Despite his constraints, Mark has put together a web page, Executable Outlines, that has taken the gospel to the world in ways most would never be able to accomplish in a lifetime. Mark’s page gets many hundreds of hits everyday. His material has been converted into many languages. Mark is one of my heroes when it comes to taking the gospel to the world!

I have had the great privilege to know Mark for 22¬†years. He is my dear friend, and the author of numerous excellent Bible study resources on his incredible website, Executable Outlines. Check it out. You’ll be glad you did!

PBwiki – It could be the tool you’re looking for!

From the following web site:

http://wiki.org/wiki.cgi?WhatIsWiki

We read ….

The simplest online database that could possibly work.

Wiki is a piece of server software that allows users to freely create and edit Web page content using any Web browser. Wiki supports hyperlinks and has a simple text syntax for creating new pages and crosslinks between internal pages on the fly.

Wiki is unusual among group communication mechanisms in that it allows the organization of contributions to be edited in addition to the content itself.

Like many simple concepts, “open editing” has some profound and subtle effects on Wiki usage. Allowing everyday users to create and edit any page in a Web site is exciting in that it encourages democratic use of the Web and promotes content composition by nontechnical users.

I must confess that I have just begun to use this amazing (and free) tool, but it is really excellent! I can think of any number of fantastic ways it can be used. A couple that come to mind are:

1. as a collaboration tool to work out Bible studies with fellow Bible students,

2. as a way for families to stay connected. As my own family range all over North America (both Canada and the USA) my wiki will be utilized to keep us all in touch!

Use your imagination, and I am sure you will see how useful this tool can be for you!
