Notes From the Underground (River): A Course in Grace in Practiceby: Paul F. M. Zahl
These 18 hours of lectures were given by Dr. Zahl during the summer of 2012, when he was asked to teach a week-long course about his book Grace in Practice. He took the opportunity to expand on his distinctive lens of theology for everyday life, rooting the message of grace in the lived human experience of judgment and love. In his unique and hilarious style, and with the aide of a veritable library of literary references, Dr. Zahl touched on a prodigious range of topics, from singleness and marriage to infancy and old age, from the unique action of Jesus Christ to the way that the forces of grace and law play out in even the most mundane areas of our lives. Taken as a whole, these recordings enhance our understanding of both Christianity and daily life by painting, in concrete experience, the broad strokes of God’s grace for sinners.
Given the sheer amount of material, the package is broken up into five manageable zip files (one for each day), plus a PDF with the tracklisting, the course bibliography, and short introductory essay. When “unpacked” there are 25 tracks, totaling roughly 400MB in size.
