The New Monergism
February 26, 2007
It is not often that I draw attention to work I’ve done, but I am going to make an exception today. Several months ago (more months ago than I care to remember, actually), John Hendryx, the gentleman who runs the site Monergism.com, approached me about helping him upgrade his site. At that time Monergism was a huge site and a hugely popular site. The site is a labor of love that, to that point, had been built and maintained almost entirely by John. The site was beginning to grow to the point that it was getting out of hand. There were hundreds of static pages that had to be individually maintained and at the same time the site’s design was getting a tad dated. And so John and I set out to reinvent Monergism. A few months and countless man hours later, John has finally unveiled the new site.
If you are not familiar with Monergism, you really should be. John has created a massive site with thousands and thousands of links to articles, books, audio files and other resources. The answer to almost any theological disagreement or conundrum lies somewhere within the site. I have often turned to the site in my research and have found myself at the site time and again when performing Google searches. It is a great service to the Christian community (and to the Reformed community in particular).
The main feature of the redesigned site is a completely new directory system (click the Directory button). It allows visitors to search and sort the links and even to rate them. Information is categorized much better and much more logically than in the past, meaning that it is far easier to find great resources through it. There are also now RSS feeds, email updates, better integration with the Monergismbooks bookstore and so on. The benefits go on and on. And what’s more, the new design isn’t too hard on the eyes.
So go, visit the site, and find something there to read about. I guarantee you can find something that interests you!
