Writer. Thinker. Artist. Mystic. Christian. Mother. World Traveller. Unabashed L'Engle fan, Chris Smith, has sparked a web page to acknowledge L'Engle's contribution to Christian life. It is an informal web gathering place where L'Engle fans can congregate. Planned are an archive of notes on L'Engle's work, and an online quotable L'Engle database. The site's owner, Chris Smith has ferreted out a healthy number of links to additional information found on the internet. Included are pages by L'Engle fans, an introduction to L'Engle's life, a biography (and audio clip), an interview, magazine articles, the Wheaton College L'Engle archive, and another archive at the University of Mississippi. Amidst the links, find L'Engle's introduction to Christian Arnold's I Tell you a Mystery, a review of Troubling a Star, , and so forth. The work on this page represents that authentic spark seen so often amongst Christians who have devoted a portion of their time, and of themselves, contributing work here on the internet. The kind of devotion represented will, over the next few years, forge more information through new acquaintenances and the outwork of new ideas. We are delighted to find the groundwork at this site.

Cults, the Occult, and Heresies. Breaking the chains of bondage by exposing deception for all the world to see. Formed in 1976, Mandate Ministries is Australia's oldest counter-cult ministry. As you read the information on this site you may wonder why Mandate Ministries publishs the type of controversial information they do. There are two valid reasons. Firstly, we know that the information you will find at this site can literally save your life; or the life of a family member; or that of someone you will come into contact with in the future. In other words, their desire is to equip you to help prevent and stop spiritual suicides! Secondly, if you are already involved with a teaching, practice, or group named at this site, then the information could set you free from a bondage that perhaps you are not even aware of at this stage. The information is offered in a genuine spirit of love and is not a product of bigotry, hatred, intolerance, or any animosity towards any particular person or group. Read the biographical information. The Helps Topics section includes the following articles, and many more: What is a Cult & Six Steps to be Able to Recognise a Cult; Facts About the Occult; What to Do When Confronted by a Cult Member; How to Confront a Member of a Cult; How to Recognise the Christ of the Bible; Brainwashing and Mind Coercion; Bible Study - There is One God; Recommended Reading List; War Veteran's Resource Page. The Facts About section includes coverage of: Christian Science; Children of God (or, Family of Love), Cooneyites; Eckankar; Gurdjieff; Hare Krishna; Islam; Jehovah's Witnesses; Mormons; Unification Church of Sun Myung Moon (The Moonies); Seventh-day; The Toronto Blessing; and, The Christadelpians. More files on Freemasonry and New Age Philosophies and Teachings, as well as Mandate Ministries Catalog of Books, Tracts, Video & Audio Cassettes, are due to be added. A four star site!

MERELEWIS is a networking forum for the discussion of the life and works of C.S. Lewis. Discussion of larger theological or denominational issues apart from Lewis, has been avoided. This related archive contains "A Life Outline of C.S. Lewis", sections including the thoughts of others about Lewis, bibliographies on his fictional works and non-fictional works as well as related works, image files and sound files, and internet links. The Tidbits section represents the making of a MERELEWIS FAQ. The archive for the MERELEWIS subscriber list is also available here through an FTP link... 100 volumes so far. Better than our own recommendation for the work being done at MERELEWIS is the "well done" that Douglas Greshem, C.S. Lewis' stepson gave to this site, and which can be seen when you visit.

Messenger Films included descriptive information, information about current projects, testimonials and kudos about its films, as well as a column, From the Director's Chair, in its on line Film Library.
