In our adult SS class we just finished the four audiotapes on 'JESUS AND THE
VICTORY OF GOD. They are lectures delivered (in summer school at Regent
College, Vancouver) by Rev. N.T. Wright. He is a historian and also is a
"canon theologian" at Westminster, London, UK. (There is a 700 page book by
the same name -- these tapes provide, what I would call, an overview.)
The tapes deal with the story of Christ in the historical context of Second
Temple Judaism. They are powerful. Christians here have had their faith
greatly strengthened. It was a bit deep and, in order to help us laypeople
(I'm 82 as well), we made a transcript, word by word. We heard them in the
Men's Saturday Morning Bible Class also, with very good effects. I have never
heard such a great series of messages before. I highly recommend them.
The publisher is BookStore@Regent-College.edu.
