The internet has more pages than anyone could ever view. There are literally tens of thousands of sites dedicated to Christian ideas. And while that is wonderful, none of us have the time or energy to find and examine them all. Many of them are heretical, others don't have much to offer pastors, or are low quality resources.
But among all of those, there are some real gems on almost every subject. These are the Christian websites that pastors use and have recommended. However, while pastors have vouched for these sites by putting them up, we as a site cannot claim to know all of them, nor do we say that "Help For Shepherds" agrees with any or all of these sites.
