Opportunity Knocks...

...But Once

These resources are available only for a limited time. Do not hesitate.

Surprised By Joy - N.T. Wright - video study series

Free for 14 days. N.B. this is but one of many series available from Zondervan MasterLectures. It is not really free for only a limited time during Covid-19 but Zondervan allows a 14-day free trial of all of the MasterLectures.

Understanding N.T. Wright And His Work (Institute For Bible Reading)

A series of six 1-hour talks on N.T. Wright and his teaching and books. Again, this is not available for only a limited time. It just seemed sensible to put it alongside the N.T. Wright course.

Pilgrim's Progress

Watch this animation of the famous book by John Bunyan. In allegorical form it encourages Christians to persevere, avoiding dangers such as Difficulty Hill, Palace Beautiful, the Valley of Humiliation, Vanity Fair, Doubting Castle etc.

In an age of very casual Christianity, this is a crucial message.

Note that the movie depicts the evil forces behind the dangers as ghoulish beings which might be frightening for children (but do perhaps reflect the reality of demonic forces).

This is free to view through the winter but might not be available after that.

The Torchlighters: Heroes of the Faith

From the same producers (Revelation Media) comes a series of animated videos about 16 heroes of the faith. Their stories are inspiring but might not be suitable for younger children as they often involve danger and death.

I am not sure if this is for a limited period.
