Research Papers and Studies

Uncovering truth

Wise insightful research is a pre-requisite to action: Nehemiah 2:11-18. Without concrete information, we are often just guessing and ‘flying without radar’. A growing number of people have done research into the relationship between the Internet, the church, and evangelism-related subjects. Not all of us are called to either write, or read, such in-depth material. Yet the concept of research in the Christian world is very important. Without facts and figures, or understanding of trends, we cannot plan strategy or anything else. The papers listed here are often in-depth doctoral material. Some are quite old – we hear of surprisingly few new studies, yet research is vital. We encourage Bible Colleges and other groups to facilitate research projects in this area. One area on which there seems to be no online research is that of how to make church websites effectively reach out into the community.

Need for research

One area in which there has been little or no research: the usability of evangelistic websites for non-Christian readers – not merely in terms of navigation and design, but specifically to avoid annoyance or lack of comprensibility, and how non-Christians handle the information presented to them. This small study on annoyance demonstrates one angle of inquiry.
