Note: two renditions of this course are available: one from 1994 and one from 2010. Both have their advantages & disadvantages. The 30 lectures from the 2010 class have superior audio quality and were delivered when Pastor Nichols was 16 years older. The 1994 messages had seven additional time slots, which allowed for a broader coverage of the material & more "Q&A" class interaction time. Some unique and priceless materials are included in these older versions—though they come from RealAudiofiles made from cassette tapes and thus have lower audio quality. Many of these had quite decent sound overall, but some had very low volume in places and/or way too much bass. These have been run through a graphic equalizer and converted to MP3 files, and efforts have been made to flatten out the choppy volume. Some tended to have low volume levels towards the start and finish, so you will hear more tape noise in these sections (since the volume has been electronically increased). Additionally, controversial issues arose in some of the Q&A sessions, during which times pastor Nichols tended to speak softer (e.g., lecture 7), so these sections will have evenmorenoise. A Textbook andReading Schedulecan be found toward the bottom of this page. Finally, as is mentioned in lecture #1 (1994), it would be helpful if listeners would hear theDoctrine of GodandDoctrine of Manclasses prior to taking this class.
