Beverly Christensen –
While I did not get a chance to completely listen to all three talks, due to computer issues, I will give this 5 stars on the basis of Dr. Bergsma’s talk alone! He is so grounded in the Big Picture of Scripture, he always, always amazes me with his depth of knowledge and love of Scripture. I wish I could buy a DVD of this retreat, instead of only a CD.
#2 Not a good speaker for this subject. No scripture to support statements.
