Next Steps

1.  Develop clear definitions of each of the four sections of Wirkungsgeschichte.com.

  • The Bible in Translation:  a timeline of Bible translations which will be filled out with various articles about these key moments in the history of Christianity.
  • The Interpretation of the Bible:  a “family tree” of hermeneutical theory
  • The Reception of the Bible:  an encyclopedia of methods of measuring the effects of the Scriptures
  • Redux:  A Grassroots Commentary:  begin to gather comments on particular Scriptures from various resources as a commentary on key passages in the Bible.
  • Scripture At Play:  a resource list of thoughtful and lasting resources on practical theology.

2.  Begin gathering content for each section using a simple organizational structure.

  • work on and edit Wikipedia articles with the information that I have to both link people to this site and to test the functionality of that system.

3.  Develop a structure to support the three parts of the ultimate goal.
