World Church: Adventist World Goes Online This Month
Adventist World, the international paper for members of the Seventh-day Adventist Church, has made the transition from print to online formats, with the launch of www.adventistworld.org. This Web site available in English, French, Spanish, and Korean, is joined by a Chinese-language Web site (chinese.adventistworld.org). The site offers Internet access to articles and features from the global publication of the 15-million member Christian church.
“We’re delighted to have an instant connection available to readers around the globe,” Bill Knott, editor and executive publisher, said. “Already, Adventist World has proven itself as a source of news, information, and inspiration to our Adventist Church family, and I believe this will be enhanced with global access to the magazine.”
NEW WEB SITE: From a prototype, here’s a look at the
“home” page of the new Adventist World Internet
Web site, which launches this month.
Each month, Adventist World features 32 pages of articles covering news, biblical issues, Adventist beliefs, health concerns, and other items of interest to Seventh-day Adventist Christians. These will be available online, free of charge, as the print magazine is now. An estimated 2 million households receive the print edition monthly.
One advantage of the online edition is an ability to present content in a way that is easy to access and recommend to others. The Web site is designed to reflect the layout of the print magazine, but also offers the electronic flexibility unique to the Internet.
“We invested a great amount of time and effort to make the Adventist WorldWeb site attractive and easy to use,” said Carlos Medley, online editor for the magazine. “It is my hope that a global audience will enjoy and appreciate this new resource, one which will grow in capabilities and offerings as time goes by.”
The magazine continues a 158-year tradition of Adventist Church communication to its constituents. Adventist World was announced in 2005 during the Fifty-eigth General Conference Session and launched a few weeks later.
