The course booklet, written by Revd Dr John Pridmore, 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 John Bell, General Sir Richard Dannatt and Dr Christina Baxter. Methodist minister Colin Morris provides the thoughtful Closing Reflection at the end of each session.
