BRAND NEW COURSE for LENT 2014
from YORK COURSES
featuring Bishop Richard Chartres, Dr Paula Gooder, Revd Joel Edwards and Revd David Gamble
BUILD ON THE ROCK Faith, doubt – and Jesus
This brand new 5-session ecumenical course for discussion groups and individuals is now in stock; ideal for Lent, but suitable for any time of year.
Written by Canon John Young (best-selling author of Hodder’s Christianity – An Introduction) BUILD ON THE ROCK (Matthew 7.24) starts by looking at faith and doubt. Is it wrong – or is it normal and healthy – for a Christian to have doubts? Is there any evidence for a God who loves us? We hear from many witnesses. At the heart of a Christian answer stands Jesus himself. We consider his ‘strange and beautiful story’ and reflect upon his teaching, his death, his resurrection and his continuing significance.
The course materials comprise:
· a booklet with a wide variety of questions designed to stimulate lively discussion
· a CD on which the Bishop of London, New Testament Scholar Dr Paula Gooder and Pentecostal minister Revd Joel Edwards explore themes raised by the course booklet, with a thoughtful closing reflection at the end of each session provided by Methodist minister and former Chair of Barnardo’s, Revd David Gamble.
· a transcript which sets out the words exactly as spoken on the CD
