I may choose at a later time to publish Making Life Decisions in a traditional book format but I am now publishing this book online for several reasons:
It is Accessible
It is a fast way of making information available to millions of people in all parts of the world, even in places where it is difficult to send books or take them personally.
It is International
This text is in English but online translation programs are constantly being improved, thus potentially opening the insights of this book to huge numbers of people who possess first languages other than English.
It is Popular
An increasing number of people are choosing to get their news and articles through online ‘readers’ delivered to their computer desktop.
It is Inexpensive
Traditional publishing is getting very costly. 70% of novels published in the United States sell fewer than 500 copies. Generally, publishers and authors don’t make any profit until their fifth book. In contrast, online publishing is relatively inexpensive so that this book is being made available to readers at no cost.
It is Environmentally Friendly
Printing words for screens saves many trees from being sacrificed, although it is recognized that readers may wish to print pages for writing, reflection and group study.
It is Expandable
In this online edition there is no opportunity for readers to add comments. Instead you are encouraged to go to the Resource Page (final page) to find new books, articles, resources and web links being added. The Resource Page also links to a related site called, Discernment Resources, upon which new stories about discernment are being posted and suggestions of resources, questions and comments can be added by readers.
