Illumination Meets Us Here

I men­tioned a while back that Glen and I were to co-author a book.

That plan still exists. But short­ly after writ­ing my blog entry about the plan, the idea start­ed to expand. Even­tu­al­ly, it expand­ed to involve a good friend of both Glen and myself, Shawn McGrath.

Glen, Shawn, and I will be col­lab­o­rat­ing on a project which is quite like­ly larg­er than the three of us. I’ll not link to this project yet nor will I share many of the details yet–we hope to have a sat­is­fi­able (for us) amount of con­tent before going public.

We’re using the open-source con­tent man­ag­er Joom­la to build the site with, though I am very unfa­mil­iar with it. It def­i­nite­ly does not have the pure sim­plic­i­ty which Word­Press has. If any­one knows of any great Joom­la tuto­ri­als that goes beyond sim­ply cre­at­ing sec­tions, cat­e­gories, and con­tent, that would be great. I would love to know more about the nuances of the menu sys­tem or why I have noticed at least three dif­fer­ent meth­ods of link­ing to the main page, which can­not be good for SEO!

With our project, we’re dream­ing big. Per­haps too big. And it’s going to take an obscene amount of writ­ing to get this site to where we want it to be.

As for what the site will offer… Think about CARM with­out the Calvin­ism or Way of Life with­out the man-made Bap­tist traditions.

And yes, we real­ize that men like Matt Slick and David Cloud have put years into their writ­ings and sites. We’re not expect­ing to be any­where near them with­in the fore­see­able future. But we can dream about after that, right? :)
