Are your commentaries available in a printed format?

The short answer is, no. However, having the pages also available as PDF files, you can print them as you need at home or put them on a CD or a flashdrive and bring them with you to any printing place.

How is your ministry funded?

This ministry is possible by a voluntary work of people who are called to donate their skills, time and effort to complete any given task of this project. The About Us page explains these aspects of the ministry in more detail.

Can I use your commentaries on a smart phone or a tablet?

Yes. These resources are available for Android and Amazon Kindle platforms. Please refer to our Links & Resources for more information. You can also download our PDF files for offline use on any platform capable of reading that format.

Do you have plans to make your commentaries available in other formats?

We are currently looking into recording the Spanish version of the commentaries in audio format.

Are your commentaries available in other languages?

We are working on expanding of our Spanish section. Currently, we have one section of the Book of Genesis available online. Both, as web pages and PDF files.

Do you have plans to make your commentaries available in other languages?

  • German. In December 2015, we were contacted by one German translator who volunteered his time to translate the commentaries and post them on the website.
  • Chinese. We are looking and praying for translators to convert the commentaries into Chinese Mandarin. It is uncertain if the one translator who was approached about it will be able to take on this work. We are hopeful.

How do I know that you have added or updated some resources on your site?

Most updates to our site are reflected on our News & Updates page. That page is based on our site's RSS feed you can subscribe to with your favorite RSS application on any platform, to be notified of the latest changes.

When will The Life of Christ be completed and online?

The Life of Christ is currently over 70% available online. We anticipate that the whole commentary will be online sometime early this year (2016).

What is your belief system, your theology?

This question is addressed on the Statement of Faith page. Please follow the link.

How secure is your website? Should I be concerned about malware and such?

First off, you should always have an updated firewall and antivirus/antimalware software protection for your computer, on top of some common-sense practices and habits when browsing the web.

As for your protection when accessing our site, we use SiteLock security services to ensure continuous scanning for security exploits and attacks. Also, we do not run any fancy/extensive scripts, apps, applets, plugins or other features that can be hijacked or exploited by attackers. The only two exceptions are the mouse-over effect (which will be eventually converted to a css stylesheet) and a simple navigation script for the "previous/next" links in the commentary pages. There's also a gallery type script for displaying of illustrations on some commentary pages. This website is as "plain-jane" in today's standards as you can get; with only html pages and viewable/downloadable PDF documents.

Can I help, contribute to your ministry somehow?

Currently, we have needs in the following two areas:

1.
As we state elsewhere, this is all voluntary work (which means that we cannot pay anybody for their work, time, services, etc). Currently we do have a need for a bilingual, Spanish speaking person, with the knowledge of working with HTML pages. The person would be converting PDF documents into web pages, using any software they are comfortable with (Dreamweaver, ExpressionWeb, etc.). They would then send the converted documents to us for posting on the Spanish section of our website. If you are lead to contribute your time and skills in this area, please contact Jay, david@jaymack.net

2.
We need to find a person or a team of people who would be interested in translating our commentaries into Russian. This person/team would need to be tech savvy enough to not only reformat word documents into ExpressionWeb documents, but also be able to load them on our server. This would be a voluntary ministry to add to our other languages. Right now we are in 140 countries a week, but we only have 3 views from Russia. Please use the following link to get in touch with us, david@jaymack.net.
