Church websites are often quite good at telling people about service times, linking to sermons, and even giving information on how to hire rooms in the building. Sadly, in my experience not many are very good at helping people access the Bible. Perhaps they assume that anyone who can find the church website can also search online and find a Bible.
But perhaps this is a missed opportunity to highlight that the Bible is essential to the church, and that the church leaders actually do want people to read it for themselves.
I’ve conducted a couple of polls on Twitter asking the simple question:
As far as a research tool it’s not been very effective but it has prompted a couple of people to at least raise the question.
