The purpose of this forum it to help and teach beginners ....
(1) what discussion forums are all about
(2) How to participate in online discussion forums
(3) To post questions about forums and hopefully have them answered here
(4) To provide practice using online discussion forums
(5) To provide a transition for users into CCEL's traditional online discussion groups (provide information about new forums and existing forums that are being operated on CCEL.

We may post some 'sample' discussion topics in this practice forum, but the primary purpose of this forum is not to discuss theological and book-related issues as we do in our other forums. Our primary purpose here is to provide a practice forum for folks to get their feet wet in the online discussion forum world.

This is the place to Practice posting, to practice reading posts, and to practice responding to posts.

So, RESPOND TO THIS FIRST THREAD BY INTRODUCING YOURSELF. Write a few sentences telling us about who you are and/or about how you first discovered CCEL.
