Soon-to-be launched TAB website features more resources than ever


The soon-to-be launched new web presence for The Alabama Baptist (TAB) offers more resources than ever before.

But it’s also a lot easier to navigate.

Across the menu bar at the top of the homepage, two main categories and a drop-down menu can direct you to the most recent content of TAB.

The first, Latest News, is current news — it takes you to the paper’s daily news feed. Breaking news items will scroll across the top of the site.

The second tab — Archives/Past Issues — holds all the content that has been printed in TAB in the past 16 years. That section is a great tool for immediate access to past articles, said Jennifer Davis Rash, TAB’s editor-elect.

“Whether someone is looking to do research on a topic, church or ministry, they will have all the content we have published since the year 2000 at their fingertips,” Rash said. “It’s also a great way for a reader to pull up past articles he or she liked and wants to share with others.”

And readers wanting to find articles older than the year 2000 are able to research those articles through Samford University’s Special Collection department.

It has long been a “great resource” with its 175-year archive of the paper and also will offer a new aspect with direct links to the articles on TAB’s website, Rash said.

To access TAB’s articles through Samford’s Special Collection, call 205-726-2749.

And along with the latest news and archive options on, a drop-down menu — the three horizontal lines in the top right corner — will take you to dozens of links to the latest columns and resources, from Sunday School lessons to ministry tips to past editorials written by Editor Bob Terry.

Subscribers to either the digital or print edition of TAB can easily access this section at no cost by creating a login and password with their account information. Visitors who don’t have a subscription will have the opportunity to subscribe or pay a small fee per article viewed.

Need help navigating any of the content? You can get in touch with TAB staff quickly and easily using the “Contact Us” tab or the social media tabs in the top right corner.
