Description

The New Testament began as letters and other documents written by people such as the Apostles. Those documents would circulate around to the many churches scattered around the Roman Empire. In fact, in the earliest days of the Christian church, most people experienced the Word by listening to scripture rather than reading it themselves.

Learning from the Bible with others as it is read out loud remains important for those interested in connecting with God and each other. In this short but essential course, Prof. N.T. Wright explains why experiencing the Bible read aloud is a formative activity everyone should experience.

Who this course is for:

  • Anyone interested in creating a more meaningful life through Biblical wisdom
  • Clergy looking for resources or inspiration to enhance their sermons and other work in the church, as well as their personal ongoing spiritual journey
  • Fans of N.T. Wright interested in Professor Wright’s perspective on maximizing the impact the Bible has in our communities
