Exploring the God QuestionMEDDO (Congregational)Discipleship

The core publication consists of three 1-hour DVDs, each in two 30-min parts. The three themes are: The Cosmos Life and Evolution Mind and Consciousness Within each DVD the format is that a large number of speakers are figured, usually talking informally to an off-camera interviewer. Their contributions are interspersed by comments from a narrator, and by visual images. A good number of these images are splendid photographs and graphic sequences of scientific subjects, from botanical to astronomical, more or less apposite to the adjacent spoken contributions. As well as "Exploring the God question" for adults, there is also a version "Introducing the God question" for young adults.
