Christians in Context 3.0 (New site design)

Unless you're reading this post in a reader, you can clearly see that we've revamped the website once again. Those who've been with us from the beginning have seen some changes over time. Well, we at CiC are doing whatever possible to not only bring you sober content but also an enjoyable experience overall. After several months of consulting and tweeking we've come to the conclusion that the CiC 2.0 layout was just too overwhelming with content and not visually appealing. So we've scaled back on several items and made the posts themselves easier to read (we've even added a font size option). Hopefully the new color format to brighten up the blog for easier reading.

What we haven't changed is the background, which has acted as our "signature" since the blog's inception. All in all we hope that this will make for a greater, more streamlined experience for everyone. We'd love your feedback on the new look as we are, like all blogs, reader supported.

This new site design is just the beginning of several changes we plan on making as we consider what's next for us at CiC. We may start podcasting some shows (perhaps once or twice a month to start) and utilize some visiting bloggers. We've dabbled with the latter in the past and we think those outside contributions have been good.

Perhaps more exciting for the rest of the bibliophiles out there, next week we'll be offering another book giveaway which will be our largest yet- so stay tuned for details. Our friends at InterVarsity Press have graciously endowed us with some gifts, and we are eager to pass those along to our faithful readers.

One last thing: we so greatly appreciate the support we've received this past year from you all. Without your daily feedback, commenting, opinions, and even encouragement we would not be here.

And for that, we thank you.

Damian, Norm, and the rest of the gang at CiC--

Blog looks great! I think its much more visually appealing. More than that, keep up the good work (Eph. 2:10). Know that your labor of love is not in vain.

A fellow blogger and admirer of your efforts, not to mention big brother of the artist formerly known as "Lum",
