Receiving Christ - In Five Different Ways

York Courses

SPCK Group

'To all who received him . . . he gave power to become children of God.' (John 1.12.)

This raises big questions. Aren't we all children of God anyway? Just how can we receive Christ? And what does it mean to have 'a relationship with God'?

In a course crammed with discussable questions, John Young teases out from the New Testament at least three different ways in which we receive Christ. John's course booklet is supplemented on the course audio by four leading Christians: the Anglican Bishop of Leeds, Nick Baines, Leaderships Development consultant, the Revd Margaret Sentamu, Methodist minister, the Revd Ken Howcroft, and the RC Sister, Theodora Hawksley. Together they demonstrate that St John's theology in his magisterial Gospel has very practical implications for our day-to-day lives.

The four sessions focus on:

Session 1: The God who hears our cry
Session 2: The Shepherd who guides and guards his people
Session 3: The Son who is the Way, the Truth and the Life
Session 4: The God who shares our pain
Session 5: The God who calms our fears
