DVD Curriculum Series

Divine Conspiracy DVDThe 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. Based on the Sermon on the Mount and The Divine Conspiracy, Dallas and John extend a call into a more authentic faith, offering a practical plan of action for those who wish to answer the call.

This six-session DVD curriculum reveals a revolutionary way to experience God … by knowing Him as an essential part of the here and now, rather than only as a part of the hereafter.
