"an impressive variety of speakers introduce each week's material, and that alone provides more than enough food for an evening's discussion"
(Church Times 2018 Lent reviewer)
An ecumenical course in five sessions for discussion groups written by Bishop John Pritchard: ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.
Rationale: The resurrection is the Big Story that turned a little Jewish protest movement into a world-transforming religion. And yet by Easter Monday we've almost forgotten about it and are planning our summer holidays.
How can we re-capture the explosive power of the resurrection that ricocheted around the world? How can we live in the glow of resurrection and be an Easter people? How can 'there and then' become 'here and now'?
1. Have I got news for you!
2. So what? The implications of the Resurrection
3. 'Let him easter in us'
4. Celebrating and praying Easter
5. A risen Church
Simon Stanley puts questions to the participants on the course audio: Revd Prof Tom Wright, NT scholar and former Bishop of Durham; Paul Vallely, journalist and broadcaster; Revd Ruth Gee, former President of Methodist Conference and Bishop Libby Lane.
N.T.(Tom) Wright (D.Phil., Oxford) has recently retired as Bishop of Durham, and is one of the most influential theologians in the world today. During his long and dynamic ministry career, Wright has successfully blended the roles of pastor, preacher, academic, and popular author. His prolific written output reaches a wide range of readers: his books The New Testament and the People of God; Jesus and the Victory of God; and The Resurrection of the Son of God are monumental works of New Testament scholarship, while his For Everyone commentary series brings the Bible alive for a popular audience. Wright is currently Research Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at the University of St Andrews in Scotland.
