Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) December 22, 2009
Christian Worldwide Marketing, dba Bible.com, the top Bible resource on the Web –reports a spike in traffic to its website during this holiday season. The site, which attracts over 2.5 million visitors a month, has seen a 20 percent increase in the number of visits to Bible.com over last month.
Company CEO Stacy Fornara says this change in volume is to be expected this time of year. “The holiday season in particular is a time when present day stresses, uncertainty about what the New Year will bring, or feelings of isolation from loved ones drive people to seek solace somewhere,” says Fornara. “Bible.com provides them with the resources they need to find words of comfort and affirmation.” She has witnessed similar spikes in activity on the site during momentous national events such as Hurricane Katrina and the 2008 US presidential election. “People always search for answers during tumultuous times,” adds Fornara.
The uptick in clicks to Bible.com has also driven up the number of requests for a free copy of the book, Tortured for Christ, from The Voice of the Martyrs, a non-profit organization that assists persecuted Christians worldwide. "Bible.com is a valuable platform for promoting our organization’s mission,” states VOM spokesman, Steve Cleary. “We are thankful for its partnership." Tortured for Christ is the true-life account of the underground church in communist-era Romania and the 14-year imprisonment suffered by Pastor Richard Wurmbrand. The Voice of the Martyrs is currently offering the free book through banner ads on the website.
