“five excellent thought-provoking biblical reflections … a reliable resource, produced with a high degree of professionalism"
(Church Times review 23 January 2015)
We are used to singing hymns of praise when we go to church but often we miss the hymns and poems that are there in the New Testament. This course will explore five different Songs of Praise from the New Testament, looking at what they tell us about God and Jesus but also reflecting on what they tell us about us and our faith.
An ecumenical course in five sessions written by Dr Paula Gooder comprising course booklet, CD and transcript; ideal for Lent, yet not Lent-specific.
1. Gratitude (Ephesians 1.3-14)
2. Image of God (Colossians 1.15-20)
3. Humility (Philippians 2.5-11)
4. New birth (1 Peter 1.3-12)
5. Word made flesh (John 1.1-14)
individual descriptions in 'related products' for more details including soundclips and sample pages.
The course booklet, written and introduced by New Testament scholar Dr Paula Gooder includes a good selection of questions at the end of each of the five sessions, designed to stimulate wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs 1 CD, and ideally a personal copy of the course booklet for each member. In addition many groups find the transcript booklet, which sets out the words as spoken on the CD, invaluable.
The participants on the course CD are Archbishop Justin Welby, Sister Wendy Beckett and actor David Suchet CBE.
Methodist Moira Sleight provides the Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
