"York Courses’ producers Simon Stanley and John Young deserve a gold medal for services to Lent: whenever I used their material, my living room was full to bursting; whenever I didn’t, we had spare chairs."
Church Times reviewer, 4 Feb 2011
"Rich Inheritance was a real tonic ... So gold medals on their way!"
Assistant Bishop of Llandaff, Feb 2011
didn’t write a will. He left no written instructions. He didn’t seem to have a
plan. At the end, as he hung dying on the cross, almost all of his followers
had abandoned him. By most worldly estimates his ministry was a failure. Nevertheless,
Jesus’ message of reconciliation with God lived on. It is the central message
of the Bible. With this good news his disciples changed the world. How did they
do it? What else did Jesus leave behind – what is his ‘legacy of love’? This
course addresses these questions.
Session 1 – An empty tomb
Session 2 – A group of people

The course booklet, written by Bishop Stephen Cottrell, includes questions aimed at provoking wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs 1 CD or audiotape, plus a course booklet for each member. In addition many groups find the transcript booklet, which cross-references to the tracks on the CD, invaluable.
The participants on the course CD/audiotape are RC Archbishop of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, Writer and lecturer in Biblical studies, Paula Gooder, and author and public theologian, Jim Wallis. Dr David Hope introduces the course and Methodist minister Inderjit Bhogal provides the Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
