How To Get the Most Out of Jordan's View

Whether you're visiting this site for the first time or have checked it out before, in this post I'd like to let you know about the many resources available through Jordan's View.

Blogs, of course, vary widely in style and purpose. Some try to be "up-to-the-minute" sources as they provide links to breaking news items, the latest intelligence regarding a particular sphere of interest, or reaction to what's happening in the blogosphere. Other blogs, like this one, are generally more content-driven.

Some blogs become gathering points of public debate and discussion, while many others are content to be more personal in nature, visited mostly by friends and family.

At Jordan's View, besides trying to provide quality content that explicates a Christian worldview, it is my aim to serve the community by providing convenient link access to some of the best Christian resources on the web.

To give you an idea of what is available here at Jordan's View, I have listed below all the resources gathered at this site, as of today, February 13, 2007. I continue to add new links on a regular basis, and periodically to add new resource sections.

In the "Featured Ministries (Outstanding Resources)" section, I will be listing sites I have found to be a "cut above" most, in terms of content, organization or vision.

So, to get the most out of Jordan's View, I highly recommend exploring these resources, remembering of course that "Jordan's View does not confirm or necessarily approve of all the views and content found through these links. One should always be "Berean": comparing truths expressed on this site or others against the standard of the Scriptures" (from my disclaimer).

I hope that you do find something that will edify, encourage and bless you. Please drop me a line with your comments or suggestions.
