Tough Talk – Hard Sayings of Jesus
A 5-session ecumenical COURSE for discussion groups – IDEAL FOR LENT or any time of year
Comprising course booklet, course audio and transcript
Some of Jesus’ statements in the Gospels sound morally shocking – ‘Hate your father and mother’ – while others seem deliberately obscure. This 5-session course considers some of these challenges.
1. Shrinking and Growing
2. Giving and Using
3. Praying and Forgiving
4. Loving and Telling
5. Trusting and Entering
The participants on the course audio are Bishop Tom Wright, Steve Chalke and Fr Gerard Hughes SJ. Professor Frances Young provides the thoughtful Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
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.
