JesusCentral.com Launches Its Chinese Web Site About Jesus - YesuZhongxin.org

ENCINITAS, CA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - JesusCentral.com, the most comprehensive Web site for simple, clear and credible information about Jesus, today unveiled a new, interactive Chinese language Web site, YesuZhongxin.org.

The YesuZhongxin.org Web site caters to more than 137 million Internet users worldwide who are literate in Chinese. The site design is based on a survey of thousands of potential Chinese users and features a variety of learning and sharing options. For people with little to no knowledge or understanding of Jesus, the site presents a macroscopic view of Jesus with historical context, as well as a categorized aggregation of Jesus' core teachings, interactions, character and purpose.

YesuZhongxin.org also provides a variety of study options, including JesusCentral.com's innovative and popular Jesus 101, an introductory course that surveys Jesus' life and teachings with an emphasis on his own words. Jesus 101 allows early students of Jesus, with or without personal faith, to gain a high-quality, high-level overview of his life and words and features an online community for group studies. In addition, YesuZhongxin.org offers brief summaries of Jesus' life and self-paced study guides.

"For those who hear about Jesus for the first time, YesuZhongxin.org provides a brief introduction into Jesus' life. For those who have more curiosity, it leads them to explore and think through the courses and provides the online forum where people can freely share," commented Bo Chen, a Chinese post-graduate student at University of California, San Diego. "Rather than providing lots of literature reading, which actually requires lots of time and passion from the reader, YesuZhongxin.org provides a very concise, yet clear teaching on Jesus' life."

"Now, people from around the globe with different Chinese spoken dialects are able to communicate with each other about Jesus in their common written language," said Vip Patel, founder and president of JesusCentral.com. "We are delighted to offer a scholastic approach to learning about Jesus in the two most widely used languages in the world, English and Chinese."
