New World, Old Faith
A 5-session ecumenical COURSE for discussion groups – IDEAL FOR LENT or any time of year
Comprising course booklet, course audio and transcript
Much of the criticism directed at Christianity in our day and age is that it’s outdated, old hat. New World, Old Faith takes the position that just because Christianity is based on events of two thousand years ago doesn’t mean it is irrelevant today. Quite the contrary – in our multi-everything world it’s more relevant than ever! Every generation has found the Gospel of Jesus Christ directly applicable to their situation. So, in the early days of the third millennium, we find that we can still trust the truths of Christianity to help us interpret life and the world as we experience it.
New World, Old Faith looks at how Christian faith continues to shed light on a whole series of issues in our changing world, including change itself. An essential course for making sense of faith in the world today.
1. Brave New World?
2. Environment and Ethics
3. Church and Family in Crisis
4. One World – Many Faiths
5. Spirituality and Superstition
The course booklet, written by Canon John Young, includes questions aimed at provoking wide-ranging discussion. Each group needs a copy of the course audio, plus a course booklet for each member. In addition many groups find the transcript, which cross-references to the tracks on the recorded material, invaluable.
The four main participants on the course audio are Archbishop Rowan Williams, Joel Edwards, Dr Pauline Webb and the Revd Dr John Polkinghorne. David Coffey provides the thoughtful Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
