Praying with Luke

I wrote “Praying with Luke’s Gospel” for the 2010 Lent Course at St Andrew’s, West Bromwich and on West Bromwich Methodist Circuit.

The course looks at the Prayers of Jesus in Luke’s Gospel, the contribution of the Gospel to the prayer life of the Christian Church and how it enhances our prayer life today. Along the way it also covers the basics of how the Gospel was written and it’s sources.

The material is available below in PDF form and, to show the animations, as videos on Vimeo from where they may also be downloaded. The course was written using Apple’s Keynote software and is available from me in either that format or Powerpoint. Some of the animations may be compromised in the Powerpoint versions.
