[I remember well the day a fellow elder brought a stack of CDs to a meeting and suggested I listen to them (something like 9 or 10 hours of listening. Are you kidding??)
He said this Ray Vander Laan guy is truly amazing. And I didn’t believe him — too many bad recommendations from friends, you know. But he was right. These first 12 mp3s are not just worth the time to listen to … You should listen to them three or four times. Really. Trust me on this.]
Now these are about 9 or 10 hours of lecture, and so I suggest you put these on CDs or download these as Podcasts to play on your mp3 player, rather than trying to listen to them all from your computer.
These are GREAT! I mean, they’ve been passed around my church, and I know people who’ve listened to all 9 or 10 hours 4 or more times. People are making copies for their kids and friends, and they are spreading like wildfire across the country.
The lectures cover some of the same material as the DVD series, but the DVD lessons are shot on site and are designed for Bible class use. The mp3 downloads are a day’s worth of fascinating, mind-blowing lectures. And there’s no problem with listening to both. They each shed light on the other, but they are not the same.
Oh, and you have to start at the beginning. Whoever was recording the series simply changed CDs in the recorder as each CD was filled, so the “lessons” tend to start in the middle of a lecture.
Thanks to Scott.
David has found and posted 14 CDs worth of materials from a series of lectures by Ray Vander Laan delivered in Idaho.
And a lecture regarding Christmas.
