“This course is very good indeed. Written by John Young, it is the latest in the excellent series of York Courses designed for groups and individuals.”
Review of Lent courses in Church Times of 30 Jan 2009.
"The Lent course These three ... Faith, Hope and Love was well chosen. It was spiritually profound while illuminating the every day experience of all of us who attended the class."
Professor Basil Mitchell, former Nolloth Professor of Philosophy of Religion, University of Oxford.
These three... Faith, Hope and Love is based on the three great qualities celebrated in 1 Corinthians 13. This famous passage begins and ends in majestic prose. But the middle paragraph is practical and demanding. St Paul's thirteen verses take us to the heart of what it means to be a Christian.
1. Believing and Trusting
2. The Peace of God
3. Faith into Love
4. The Greatest of these
5. All shall be well
The course booklet, written by Canon John Young, 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 Bishop Tom Wright, Anne Atkins and The Abbot of Worth. Dr David Hope introduces the course and Professor Frances Young provides the Closing Reflections.
