A.1 The World Wide Web
* additional material
People often ask for references to resources of interest to Christians. Below I've listed some URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) that I am familiar with.
Perhaps my favorite starting point is the ICLnet homepage <http://www.iclnet.org/> They have done an excellent job of gathering together and organizing references to all the christian resources on the Internet that I have ever been aware of, and more. Check it out if you haven't already. I also use it as my entry point to the amazing Not Just Bibles guide to Christian resources on the Internet.

Christia can also be read via the Usenet newsgroup bit.listserv.christia. While the mailing list is not moderated, the usenet group is moderated. This explains why there are so many submissions from FOCMCB (aka the USENET/NETNEWS Moderator)
Additional newsgroups of possible interest are listed below. I know very little about them, so read at your own risk. I feel I should repeat this warning - some of these alt.* groups can seem very unchristlike, in a way that is rarely seen on Christia.
