Open House

We have some good news for readers of America. Last month we announced that, to celebrate the launch of our new Web site, all content would be free through the end of July. Now weve decided to keep our site FREE for another whole month. Thats right, through the end of August, you can read every article from America online. Were convinced that, when you see what we offer, youll want to become a full-time web subscriber.

Thanks to all those who have submitted feedback on our new Web site. We have taken your comments into consideration as we continue to tinker. A few updates:

1) Archives Page Archive issues from January 2000 until the present are now available on our archives page, which can be accessed via our advanced search page. You can also click on the "go to archives" link below "Recent Issues" on our home page.

2) Podcast You can now listen to our podcast on your MP3 player by subscribing via ITunes. Our new podcast page also allows you to upload our latest audio files to your Google or Yahoo pages.

3) The Word For links to Word columns for the upcoming Sunday, check out "The Good Word," our new blog on Scripture and preaching. "The Good Word" also features daily commentary from our roster of Scripture experts. Also keep an eye on our list of "Most Read" articles on the home page--the Word columns often appear in our top five.
