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.

Acts follows the Church from its birth in Jerusalem through its exponential growth and inevitable persecution, led by Saul of Tarsus. Incredibly, Saul later confronts the risen and glorified Christ on the road to Damascus, where he becomes a believer. And not just any old believer! Saul becomes Paul, the great Apostle to the Gentiles. From Chapter 9 onward, Acts follows Paul on his three missionary journeys as he takes the Gospel into Asia Minor and Europe.

I love the way Dr C ties everything together helping me to make sense of all the books in the New Testament. It has been so helpful and such a joy to listen to. I've listened through this slowly, repeating sections and taking notes. I have picked up so many nuggets. I love the way Bill presents the Word of God. HIs passion and enthusiasm and the anecdotes also help bring the text to another level of relevance. It's enjoyable listening. Thank you. LOVE IT!!

Paul had a special love for the church and people of Philippi, a Roman military garrison town in northern Greece, known as Macedonia in Paul’s day. During his second missionary journey (A.D. 50-52) this was the first church he founded on the continent of Europe, and it is the home of Lydia, Paul’s confidante and very close friend. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores the tone and content of this very affectionate epistle, written during Paul’s stay in Rome, A.D. 60-62.

Not worth purchasing on its own for one credit. Only 2.5ish hours of input and some of the material is repeated from the Acts study which is much more detailed and interesting. Maybe there is just very little to say about the book of Philippians. I feel an urgent need to look elsewhere and dig deeper. Bill uses an expletive at one point that puts people like me off!

Picking up on the monastic tradition of creating a "rule of life" that allows for regular space for the practice of the spiritual disciplines, this book takes you more deeply into understanding seven key disciplines along with practical ideas for weaving them into everyday life. Each chapter includes exercises to help you begin the practices - individually and in a group context. The final chapter puts it all together in a way that will help you arrange your life for spiritual transformation.

I decided yet again to read through my bible in a year, feeling that I lacked a good overall understanding of how the book fits together. I'm so glad that I decided to do this this year. I listen to the Daily Message and I am simultaneously reading through the Living Bible. I have found that when I read it all seems more familiar as I have already heard it. It's great to be able to stop and pause when I need to make notes or do some research if I need more depth and insight from another translation. NB I realise that the MSG is a paraphrase and so I use it with the ESV and Amplified versions of the Bible. I recommend this highly!
