After going through the first session, I realized that one must also have the Participants Guide which is not included and must be ordered separately. There is no way to properly view the series until I obtain the guide. Christian Book Distributors did not make this clear in the catalog. Since the Participants Guide is required for proper viewing, it should have been included by CBD as one combined product.
Wright is just a warm, compelling speaker. This dvd makes the viewer feel as though they are having a personal converstion with him. The study guide that goes with is also appears to be extremely well done and very useful. Will be using these materials in an adult class soon.
We just ran a six week course using this DVD and I can't speak highly enough about it. It is well organized and is valuable for anyone who attended one session or all of them, as each individual session can stand alone. I agree with Newsweek that Wright is the outstanding theologian of our time.
