Here are the various resources that have been made available throughout the zoom courses. A few of them I have combined into longer articles (for example, I have combined the ones on Scripture).
The four interviews with Roger Mitchell.
- How does 'kenarchy' outwork at a practical level?
Interviews with Michele Perry.
Interviews with Stephen Hill
Judas: It was Night Martin Scott
The radical nature of Stephen's Speech Martin Scott
A Narrative Approach: an introduction Martin Scott
The final taking of Jerusalem YouTube Historical Animation of the Jewish War 66-70AD (24mins).
Alternative Video on the Fall of Jerusalem YouTube - longer alternative to above (45mins).
The Maccabean Revolt YouTube Historical Animation of the Maccabean Revolt against Greeks & subsequent cleansing of the Temple 167-160BC
This revolt and the cleansing of the Temple is the history behind the Festival of Hanukkah; the Greek king Antiochus IV (Epiphanes) caused the 'sacrilege that causes desolation' in the Temple and is the type of 'antiChrist'. Perhaps the book of Daniel is aimed as an encouragement into this period of history.
The following video goes with the first volume but given that it is on the cross I thought it should also be added here:
Pete Enns has a fabulous set of podcasts - always interesting and normally with a touch of controversy.
A recent one on maculine toxity / patriarchy and its normalcy within evengelicalism:
The list is endless. I am deeply indebted to N.T. (Tom) Wright. His writings on Jesus and on Paul are a good place to start. For a more challenging read try Andrew Perrimann and his regular blog at: https://postost.net.
Brad Jersak: A More Christlike God: A More Beautiful Gospel
Brian Zahnd: Sinners in the Hands of a Loving God: The Scandalous Truth of the Very Good News
Not a book (duh!) but they both have presented 'The Gospel with Chairs'.
Just try YouTube and see how many variations of this there are!
For an approach to Scripture try Pete Enns various writings or the excellent (and astutely entitled) book by Derek Flood: Disarming Scripture.
Roger Haydon Mitchell's research was into how sovereignty (my over-simplification power as the paradigm for God and how s/he relates to humanity). Try The Fall of the Church. Deeply profound and much more to it than simply pre-Constantine OK, post-Constantine all bad!

Engaging beyond the four walls
In suggesting that the foundations of the 'Seven Mountains' approach is deeply problematic, how should we view engagement?
