“Offering Christ: The Good News Here and Hereafter,” Fondren Lecture audio tape, 1974

In February of 1974 Albert Outler presented the annual Fondren Lectures at Southern Methodist University. Outler’s four lectures on the theme “Theology in the Wesleyan Spirit” were “Plundering the Egyptians: On the Art of Making the Best Use of Good Sources,” “Diagnosing the Human Flaw: Reflections on the Real Human Condition,” “Offering Christ: The Good News Here and Hereafter,” and “Going on to Perfection: Holiness of Heart and Life.”

The Fondren Lectures on Christian Mission were established in 1919 through the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Fondren of Houston, Texas. To hear all of the lectures from Ministers' Week 1974, please click below:
