  1. Your posting of this page, inspires me to make a comment, that you and your readers might think about. As someone interested in the topic, but outside the religion industry, my largest problem is getting access to the current writings by people in the industry. They are either very expensive or hard to access.

    Would it be great if someone set up a web server, perhaps with a forum mechanism, but that is a detail, where a large group of potentially prescreened people could write the thesis/synopsis of as many peer reviewed papers in the industry as possible. Not reviews or opinions, but the thesis statement, and perhaps the arguments of the paper in outline form.

    This would then be available to VIEW by everyone, and perhaps COMMENT/DISCUSS (remember it is set up with a forum mechanism) by others (perhaps different than the contributors)

    I used to help Dr Robert M. Price for years with his technical stuff. I am now a retired computer worker that has studied early christianity for almost 20+ years now. I believe that such a mechanism would 1) enable seriously interested lay people to stay more informed of the details of what is happening in the industry, 2) would create a community of both seriously interested lay people, and open minded professionals due to the community that would result in such a multi person effort community, and 3) would enable people that are seriously interested in the subject have a place to go to find out the general outlines of the arguments being made in the industry without having to pay money or find some kind of special access to the industry.

    As a retired computer industry worker, I would be happy to build such a thing, at no cost, which would operate for less than $20 a month of server and bandwidth, and if you or anyone is interested in the concept, please feel free to contact me by email.
