Publisher's Summary

Join one of the world’s most acclaimed theologians, award-winning professor Fr. Harvey D. Egan, S.J., as you will grapple with life’s ultimate questions and explore our rich Christian heritage. Here, you will discover powerful insights into the meaning and salvific value of the truths of Christianity. This illuminating audio course will explore the Christian faith as a powerful whole, allowing you to discover the full range of life’s greatest mysteries.

In 24 accessible lectures, you will focus on Christian truths both great and small, tackling essential exegetical, dogmatic, historical, systematic, and ecumenical questions. You will also gain new insights into Jesus’ life and times using the scriptural interpretations of scholars like N. T. Wright.

Throughout the lectures, you will encounter approaches from various traditions: religious figures like the Buddha, scientists like Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl, secular artists like Ingmar Bergman, existential philosophers like Sartre, and many more. By doing so, you will become better able to engage in interreligious dialogue. These different perspectives will reveal the universality of our quest to comprehend life’s purpose. 

As you take a closer look at our one humanity, our one world, and our one cosmos, you will gain a deeper awareness of the great truths of the Christian tradition.

This course is part of the Learn25 collection.

Critic Reviews

"Guided by his best friend Jesus - he's a Jesuit - and inspired by his mentor Rahner, Fr. Harvey Egan has spent a lifetime contemplating Christianity and the mystery of existence. Here, he offers the best spiritual wisdom from his mystical life for those of us who are less capable of imagining the Mystery." (Thomas Groome, Professor of Theology and Religious Education, Boston College)

Insightful, living and fascinating

Fr. Egan is one of the great professors of Catholic Theology. In this series, he has clearly distilled decades of wisdom and study. Theology is a broad and deep topic, but in this series Egan focuses on some of its most important ideas. He brings clarity, wit and rock-solid faith. I highly recommend each of his Learn25 courses, especially in including this one.

The Very Best Inspired Revelation of Heart Faith

Hello, you must delve into this beloved book. It was what the doctor ordered. Explores so much that I had to hit pause many times, to enjoy its beauty. Will listen again many times. Chapter 13. The Trinity will be a beauty and do much more. The renewal of all creation will certainly give you clear insight.
