A Still More User-Centered Equipping Blog

Late last year I said I was taking this blog in a new direction: one in which I would center much of my writing on the specific needs of parents, pastors/teachers, and Christians in the marketplace. That turned out to be a good idea but difficult to implement.

The concept is still evolving. I knew it would. As far as I’m aware, no one has done the kind of user-centered, equipping blog I’m hoping to provide for parents, pastor/teachers, and students, in the context of a living blogsite. Starting on Wednesday, April 17, I’ll be taking this to a new level both for you and for me.

Here’s how it’s going to look, in preview form (click to enlarge — PDF). The main thing is right at the top: weekly featured content for the people who need it most. Inside each of these links, a new navigation structure will enable anyone in these groups to find their way quickly to their most useful material.

New features will include:

Weekly featured content for

  • Parents
  • Pastors/Teachers
  • Students

The Two Central Issues in Christianity and Culture

  • Who Holds the High Ground (Is Christianity Really Good, After All?)
  • The Marriage Debate

Other great additions

  • Easier-to-find core articles
  • A few focus on book reviews
  • Updated subscription options (RSS and Email)
  • More yet to be unveiled

And of course the same blog as always, now under the title Current Commentary

Is this still in progress? Yes. It’s still a new concept, and I’m not committing to a final format until it works for users and for me as it must work.
