The website uses the idea of "God's house" as a model, with chatrooms on major issues of concern to people today and addresses questions of faith. The CEV Bible is an integral part of the whole project, combining the Contemporary English Version translation with whole columns of additional material distributed throughout the Bible text looking at moral and personal issues. These all link directly into the different rooms on the website, and there is also extensive introductory material explaining where the Bible comes from, as well as how works.
