I use to listen to Pastor Chuck on a local radio station, but the stations programming changed after Pastor Chuck went on to be with the Lord in 2013. I had missed listening to his deep soft voice as he went through the scriptures and proclaimed the Word of God to his listening audience. When I found this set of CD's available I jumped at the opportunity to purchase them so that I could once again learn from this humble man who served the Lord so faithfully for so many years.
The Lord blessed me with a calling to be a Sunday School teacher a few years back, and listening to Pastor Chuck's sermons are almost always part of my study preparation each week. I can not give this C3000 series a high enough recommendation to anyone who yearns to spend time with the Lord and a deeper understanding of God's Word. It is a true blessing from God to have the ability to listen to Chuck Smith again.
When you start listening to this amazing series of commentaries on the bible, it will really grab a hold of you.
Pastor Chuck quite simply goes through each book one at a time, explaining topics as they arrive, of the scriptures including the historical backgrounds, culture and everything else that is relevant.
This is massive. Over 630 lessons and each around 40 minutes long.
Its what I have always wanted, trying to read the bible myself was difficult because there were aspects I did not understand, be it cultural and historic of significance.
Through this series you will stepped through each book, with solid explanations of whats happening and also how it relates to our every day life today, with the challenges we are Christians are facing now and to the future.
A true blessing from God, for the price, it is extremely affordable. there are easily 400 hours if not more of teachings over a 15 year period.
If you want to understand the bible - Listen to this!
This is a brilliant product for believers that really want to get into God's Word.
I've tried reading the Bible in one year and it doesn't work as nothing goes in!
It's much better to go through the Bible with a gifted teacher who can expound upon the scriptures and this is just the sermon set for the job. It's taken me two months of listening to a daily sermon to get to Judges. There are over 600 sermons so this is value for money.
Chuck also relates the scriptures in an easy way to the everyday person like myself.
I also recommend Chuck's C2000 series which is available on the web for free. It took me over 18 months to get through C2000. C3000 is more in depth and goes at a slower pace .
This series is the best so far for down to Earth from Above understanding Gods Word! If you have the C2000 series, you should get this C3000 series. I have both, and one fills in the gaps of knowledge from the other. I certainly believe that Chuck understands Gods instructions that we are ment to understand as close as the Apostiles did. Not saying that Chuck should be put on a pedistial, just saying that he is filled with the Holy Spirit and gives us True knowledge from the Father and Lord Jesus Christ.
