Has anyone been able to download the Pauline Epistles under NT? For some reason, though I am signed on and accessing other files, it loops me back to the webpage instead of allowing me to select the files to download. Everything else is downloading just fine EXCEPT the Pauline Epistles. Hm..:p

That happened to me a few times on the ethics one. You just have to keep trying.

Could someone recommend a logical listening order for those that would like to go through these lectures in the order that you would take them in seminary.

Here is my guess:

Intro to Pastoral and Theological Studies
Genesis through Joshua
Isaiah through Malachi
Gospel and Acts
Pauline Epistles
Hebrews through Revelation
History of Christianity I
History of Christianity II
The Church and the World
History of Missions
Intro to Pastoral and Theological Studies
Theological Foundations
Systematic Theology I
Systematic Theology II
Systematic Theology III
Pastoral and Social Ethics
History of Philosophy and Christian Thought
Christian Apologetics
C.S. Lewis

Also does anyone know of a Hermeneutics course or lecture/sermon series, available in MP3 format. I hope RTS will eventually post more courses for people that would like to listen to the lectures but can’t afford tuition.

RE: "Intro to Pastoral and Theological Studies"

This is a summative course and should be taken last. Not sure why they use the "intro" in the title of that course.

Otherwise courses are designed to be stand alone. Take them in any order you prefer.

I have already listened to the Intro to Pastoral and Theological Studies and it sounded like it should come first since Richard Pratt kept alluding to what to expect in theological studies and dangers to avoid ect. Mostly the type of preliminary advice you would give to new students before they start their studies.

I could see how some could be studied in parallel but others seem like they should be logical prerequisites. One example is the History of Philosophy before Apologetics. Frame himself mentioned something to the effect that he assumed that most of his students had already taken the philosophy course. This seemed to make sense since the history of philosophy lays out the different schools of thought, whereas Apologetics is applying the Christian philosophy to these different schools of thought so it would seem to be benificial for you to have these schools of thought fresh in your mind when you study apologetics. I would think that it would save time for the instructor so that he would not have to constantly be going in to detail and only have to briefly summarize each school of thought when dealing with that particular philosophy. Maybe this is the only exception that I can see, other than the History of Christianity and Systematic Theology courses that probably ought to be listened to in order.

Anybody know how to d/l without iTunes??

I prefer not to install another mp3 player (itunes) on my computer. Is this the only way one can actually listen to these? I was surprised they limited themselves by calling it iTunes U, like that is the only way. Any help is appreciated.

I don't know of a way to download them outside of ITunes. However, once you do download them you can listen to them without ITunes. So you could remove ITunes once you have the classes all downloaded.

iTunesU is an official iTunes thing, they've just put their mp3s onto the iTunes site.

Good Advice...think I will do that.

I don't want to miss out on this valuable resource.

I feel for you! :mad: I'm stuck with i-Tune. Most of the podcasting sites I like use it, and none of the other podcasting receiving programs work as well on my PC as i-Tunes. So I use i-Tune almost exclusively for downloading podcast, then I switch to Windows Media Player to sync with my mp3 player (i-Tunes does work with generic mp3 players). It amazes me that I can use i-Tunes to put mp3s on my Sansa player.

I know this is asking for more than deserved but I have been enjoying the priveledge of listening to these great messages and sometimes get frustrated because they refer to illustrations and outlines and drawings and such but I can't see them. Is there a method of seeing some of these outlines or illustrations somewhere? The textbooks(except for Frame's DKG) aren't indicated so I don't know what title to get. Any online adobe docs would be helpful. Again, sorry if this sounds like a complaint, it's not, these are great recordings, and if you didn't download them yet you should try a few and see that they are great.

I am midway through the Ethics course, and it...is...AWESOME!!!... ..!

It was funny because in my small group in bible study the main question was presented: why should we do what is right? I was like BAM busting out the normative, situational, and existential reasons. Although I didn't use those words lol.
