History of and Responses to the Devotional Format of the Pathwork Lectures — (an updated version of my article in the Pathwork Foundation’s In Connection — 3/30/16)

Notes:

Note 1: the lectures here are in PDF format.

Note 2: Use Pathwork Lecture 204 below for a comprehensive description of Pathwork

Note 3: Most users of the version do NOT print them out but rather view them on their iPads or other devices. I for one do print them out, double-sided, for ease in note taking, study, and pondering.

Note 4: The Devotional Format of the lectures are also available via a Dropbox folder (eventually 300mb).
