What is e-manetdergi.org?
e-manetdergi.org hosts e-manet, a digital journal on the Bible and theology. e-manet is a publication of the Anatolian Christian Community. Its content is based on fundamental protestant Christian theology. The published materials are carefully selected to support our stated goal of presenting the fundamental teachings of the Christian scriptures so as to grow the faith and practice of Turkish-speaking Christian individuals and train them to be effective in growing other Christians who are not as experienced in their faith. The editorial board accepts the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testament as the plenary verbally inspired Word of God and the authoritative source of knowledge and rule of conduct for the Christian.
