Online Bible Reading Resource Extends Usefulness and Reach on New, User-Friendly Platform
Apr. 30, 2014 – MATTAWAN, Mich. — Peter DeHaan announced the completion of the overhaul on his popular website ABibleADay.com. The site, which allows him to share his passion for considering the Bible as a fresh, spiritual narrative and not an obsolete rule book, was started in 2008 and received record page views this March, even as the transition was still taking place.
ABibleADay.com is powered by WordPress software, the world’s leading website platform. “This effort began in late 2013,” said Peter DeHaan, PhD, the site’s main content provider. “We kept the old site up and operational as we methodically moved the content over, page by page. Also, each of the 750 pages were reviewed and updated. That made the process take much longer, but it was worth the extra effort.
“With the new WordPress platform, making changes and adding new content is quick and easy,” said DeHaan, a lifetime student of the Bible. The site also boasts a fresh look: “The pages have a clean appearance and navigation is a breeze. Designed six years ago, the old site was definitely showing its age. I’m ecstatic over the improvement.
“A Bible A Day is for Bible-curious people,” added Peter DeHaan. “The FAQ section is the place to start, while helpful resources are in the ‘Books of the Bible’ and ‘Bible Terms’ sections.” A popular feature is the Bible reading plans, which offers options for any schedule. The site also includes a feed of biblically related posts, originally appearing on Peter’s main blog at PeterDeHaan.com. New posts appear each Thursday; plus, there is an archive of past posts, dating back to 2008.
