About the Christian Bible Reference Site
The Christian Bible Reference Site is a nonprofit Christian Bible study website
devoted to better understanding the Bible and its messages for the modern world.
All Christians revere the Bible as the core of their faith, and our goal is to
provide accurate and unbiased information about the Bible and its teachings. This
website is not affiliated with any denomination or sect, and our
materials are not written to conform to our personal beliefs nor to the viewpoints of any particular
denomination, sect, religious tradition or system of theology.
Our articles and the answers we give to Bible questions are taken straight
from the Bible whenever possible. When interpretation is needed to understand a
Bible passage or Bible topic, we rely on the best available reference materials
from the mainstream of Christian scholarship. Our References
lists the primary reference materials we use. In total, we have about 65 Bibles,
Bible commentaries, Bible Dictionaries, Hebrew/Greek references, concordances and
cross references in searchable electronic form where we can find information on
almost any Bible passage or topic.
Our website began in January, 1996, with the publication of
Wisdom of the
Bible at members.aol.com. In 1999, we registered the TwoPaths.com domain name which alludes to the two
roads we can choose in life. The broad, easy way leads to destruction,
but the narrow, more demanding way leads to eternal life (Matthew 7:13-14). In 2006, we changed the name of our website to The Christian Bible Reference
Site to better reflect our content and services. Now you can find us on the
Internet at either www.ChristianBibleReference.org
In an average week, about 104,000 unique visitors view about 180,000 Web pages
here, and we answer about 75 Bible questions sent in by our visitors.
