We are pleased to announce our newest Big Class: Getting More Out of the Bible with Justin Welby. The Most Rev. Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, is an author, teacher, and the spiritual leader of 80 million Anglicans worldwide. Taking this course and using it to launch a renewed approach to scripture is an excellent way to start a new Church year.
In this course, Archbishop Welby invites Christians to deepen and improve their reading of the Bible and offers guidance on ways to do so. We will offer the course for free to anyone who wants to take it across the world from November 27 through December 25.
The course includes, among other materials, video lectures with Archbishop Welby, resources for further Biblical study according to his suggestions, and the opportunity to discuss the Archbishop’s lectures with Christians across the world. It requires no special software and should take the average student less than an hour to complete. To learn more about taking the Big Class yourself or about using it in your congregation, click here.
We are able to offer this course free of charge during Advent thanks to the generosity of the Office of the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church and The Bible In the Life of the Church initiative. We hope that you will make the course a part of your Advent discipline. For a preview of one of Archbishop Welby’s lectures, please click below.
