    Story

    I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.

    Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

    As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

    According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), Judges is the eleventh in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Joshua and followed by Ruth. Judges has 21 chapters, and the study is comprised of 7 lessons. Total time - 5 hours, 8 minutes.

    In Joshua we conquer the land; in Judges we settle it. This book recounts the chaotic downward spiral of a people who turn away from God. Not a nation, but a loose confederation of 12 tribes, Israel spirals downward from a people obeying God to one that turns their back on him, a nation in which everyone “does that which is right in his own eyes.” By the end of Judges, Israel is in total apostasy—and God’s plan of salvation seems to have vanished.

    Written during a period of intense persecution under the Roman emperor Nero in 64-68 B.C., Mark offers an urgent message for a community in crisis. With its fast start (“Beginning the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Son of God... as it is written in Isaiah the prophet”), Mark hits the ground running, and he doesn’t slow down until the final episode at the end, in which the women who see Jesus’ empty tomb say nothing, for they were terrified." Mark’s Gospel is a clarion call to action. Master story teller, Dr. Bill Creasy, sounds the trumpet!

    Story
    Where does Romans: The Greatest Letter Ever Written rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best audiobooks I have purchased thus far. John Piper is a powerful preacher, and it is very spiritually enriching to listen to this audiobook of his sermon on Romans every day during my commute.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Romans: The Greatest Letter Ever Written?

    He really drives home the magnitude of the glory of God. I am still listening to the audiobook (as it is over 150hrs long), but I am humbled and left in awe and the glory of our God after listening to these sermons


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Haha, no, definitely not a one sitting book. Way to deep and thought-provoking to just sit and listen all day.

In Face to Face with God, readers will learn: How to "set up an ambush" to apprehend God rather than just waiting on God, what it means to enter "the favor of His face," and how it changes history.

    Although Matthew may not be the first written Gospel, like Isaiah it is positioned first in its sequence of four Gospels. Opening with a 42-generation genealogy, Matthew reminds us of the linear nature of God’s plan, and Matthew forms a link—a swinging door—between the Old and New Testaments. Matthew is a Jew writing for a Jewish audience, and his Gospel provides our first perspective on the birth and public ministry of Jesus Christ. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he leads us through this dazzling work.

    Written considerably later that the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), John takes a very different approach to the Gospel story. Traditionally attributed to the "Beloved Apostle" John, this Gospel doesn’t give us yet another version of the events in Jesus’ public ministry; John illustrates what those events mean in light of 60 years of reflection upon them. The Gospel according to John is a brilliant book, and it offers us a profoundly intimate glimpse into the person and work of Jesus Christ.

Although Matthew, Mark, and Luke draw from many of the same sources for their material, each Gospel writer adapts his material for his particular audience and purpose. Luke presents his material in a brilliant prose style, as he creates a specific voice for his narrator and specific, identifiable voices for his characters.

    Dr. Creasy has noted on many occasions that the Bible—in its final, finished form—is a unified literary work that is linear in structure; its main character is God; its conflict is sin; and its theme is redemption. Viewing the Bible from this perspective, the curtain rises on our story in Genesis 1, and it falls in Revelation 22. From a literary perspective, Revelation is the final chapter in a sprawling 2,000 page, 66-chapter story.

    1st presentation: "Ministry as Affecting the Minister": 2nd presentation: "Moral Loneliness within Life" and "Ministry as Affecting the Minister" :Ministry as both a Faith-drama and an Ego-drama. Schools of ministry are good at preparing us in how to do ministry. They are less adept in preparing us in terms of what ministry will do to us. How do we cope with the grandiosity that is triggered by success? How do we deal with the anger and bitterness that besets us when our ministry is going badly? How do we handle our sexuality inside all of this?

    Too often we mistake religion for an insurance policy by which we are somehow guaranteed success, health and a productive life. Three parables in particular reveal that a healthy and holy spirituality is founded on the compassionate mercy of God: The accounts of the (1) Prodigal Son, (2) the Samaritan Woman, and the (3) Good Samaritan serve to remind us that God comes to those who are worn out, broken and who feel inadequate to the tasks of life. These three parables remind us that God loves us completely, even in our deepest need.

    The poetry and the power of the word of God comes alive in this informative presentation that is meant to instill in all lovers of the Bible a deeper intimacy with the living Word of God, the logos, the Christ. Dr. Healy skillfully fuses together the history of salvation in Hebrew Scriptures with the culmination of that history as spiritually understood in the New Testament. Nevertheless, only a person who is truly looking for the inspiration that comes from the Holy Spirit can truly unlock the meaning of the inspired word.

    Children, whom you know and love, need to learn about God. Alice Camille stresses that adults need a clear, faithful understanding of God themselves that they can pass on through words and example. She provides practical approaches and guidelines for addressing the question, “What do we say to our kid’s about God?” Although this is difficult for adults and children alike, talking about God is vitally important. The conversation will impact every aspect of the child's life and lay the groundwork for their lifetime relationship with God and the Church.

    Msgr. Rossetti’s uplifting words are suffused with a spirit of gratitude and joy. He encourages listeners to abandonment to God and a habitual awareness of God’s loving presence. It is precisely this Presence that gives inner peace and radiates God’s joy. This retreat given to the Bishops, focuses on the Divine invitation to a deeper relationship with God. Drawing on a lifetime of ministry to priests and bishops, speaking of such important spiritual topics as prayer, Eucharistic amazement, the Mother of God, hope, facing suffering, thanksgiving, and joy.
