DVD Curriculum Series
The Divine Conspiracy
Jesus' Master Class for Life
Gracefully weaving biblical teaching, popular culture, science, scholarship, and spiritual practice into one cohesive group DVD study, John Ortberg joins Dr. Willard in showing us the necessity of making profound changes in how we view our life and live out our faith.
