In honor of this summer’s site redesign, and to promote the forum changes, SI is hosting a special book giveaway. Since it’s time for students everywhere to hit the books, we thought we’d call it the 2012 “Back to School” book giveaway. Before we spell out the prizes we are giving away and how you can win them, a bit about the forum.
Why does SI have a forum?
One reason is that SharperIron began as a forum. From day one, those who had a question to pose, a topic to discuss or a controversy to explore, could start a discussion (a.k.a “thread”) and invite the responses of others. That ability of users to start topics has been an important part of what makes SI unique: the content doesn’t all come from the top down. Users have the opportunity to help one another, whether that takes the form of testing your arguments, requesting prayer, looking for practical tips or getting help with a puzzling passage of Scripture.
This month we’re giving the forum a bit of a special emphasis by giving away some books to three randomly drawn winners. So if you’ve been thinking about starting a thread, it’s a great time to jump in.
