Tough Talk – Hard Sayings of Jesus

Some of Jesus’ statements in the Gospels sound morally shocking – ‘Hate your father and mother’ – while others seem deliberately obscure. This 5-part course considers some of these challenges.

5 sessions:
1. Shrinking and Growing
2. Giving and Using
3. Praying and Forgiving
4. Loving and Telling
5. Trusting and Entering

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 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.
