Rev Dr Helen Paynter, Tutor at Bristol Baptist College is taking a tour through the Bible and you are invited to come on the journey with her!

Each day she will add a new video on Youtube (as of today there are already 12 available!), starting at the beginning with a look at Genesisand then spending one or two days on each book of the Bible, giving an overview, looking at its themes and messages and then focussing on one section of the book in a little more detail. Helen is a very gifted theologian and her presentations are very accessible. They range in length but average around 20 minutes each.

Life Together by Dietrich Bonhoeffer - Recommended 

For many of us, books help us explore and sustain our faith. With this in mind, here is a link to a really good book by a German pastor and theologian, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, who was martyred in 1945. The book is called ‘Life Together’, and it explores what Christian community is. This version is freely available online. Please be aware that, as it was written in the first half of the 20th century, some of the language might feel a little clunky. Nevertheless, stick with it! It’s fairly short and a very rewarding read.Click here to access the book.

Surprised by Hope

A free trial of ‘Surprised by Hope’, presented by NT Wright, the BIshop of Durham, is available by clicking here. You will need to register and the trial period lasts for 14 days, after which you will be billed unless you have cancelled your subscription.

Many Christians believe our future in heaven is all that really matters. But that's not what the Bible teaches. Through this six-session, video-based Bible study, Surprised by Hope,  N. T. Wright, the Bishop of Durham, brings you inside the Scriptures to grasp the full, breathtaking hope Jesus offers the world, and its implications for your life today.

Gain an exciting new vision for your life on earth in light of your future in heaven. Wonderful as is the promise of heaven, a glorious hereafter is just part of what salvation is about. Jesus called his followers the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Your life here and now is of tremendous consequence, and what you believe about the future has a direct impact on how you live in the present!
