Professor N.T. Wright’s course Paul and His Letter to the Colossians resonates with students who not only want to understand the Bible better, but also want to live out its teachings in their own lives.
Here’s what they are saying:
‘Be thankful, not for fuzzy things, but for specifics: Jesus in whom all wisdom dwells coming to die for me; his gift of the Holy Spirit to rehabilitate me; his beautiful creation; his promise that nothing(except my own folly) can snatch me out of his hand; and so much more.
‘As the course deepened my understanding, I earnestly pray that I am a better builder for the Lord’s kingdom.’
‘For me, the course showed the importance of Christian living and how we are to be transformed to be kind, thankful, involved in the building of the kingdom as we have opportunity.’
‘The presentation of the letter’s content as a small working model for new creation in God’s kingdom really did speak to to me, and this letter has become a pearl to me now. ‘
‘Professor Wright has done a great job of explaining the book of Colossians in terms that can be easily understood and then applied to my daily life.’
‘It’s amazing we can get this material, at this price, and I can learn it sitting in the car rider line at my daughters school or at my office right before I see a client. I look forward to each class!’
