Click here to access classes and lectures from the past (e.g., Cornelius Van Til, John Murray) and the present (e.g., Sinclair Ferguson, Carl Trueman, Scot Oliphint, Richard Gaffin, etc.).

I’ve previously mentioned similar iTunes collections from Covenant Theological Seminary and Reformed Theological Seminary.

    This is a wonderful resource for those of us who for various reasons aren’t able to attend seminary, thank you!

  2. David Rufner says:

    Thank you for sharing. Concordia Seminary – St. Louis (Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod) also has a wonderful offering of free lectures and classes. http://itunes.csl.edu/

    Good stuff. They have plenty more on their website (wts.edu), which requires free registration. I take it they are transitioning from their rather unfriendly media website to the more common but still somewhat unfriendly iTunes U. (For instance, iTunes U doesn’t list the speaker for all the audio. Under their Apologetics collection, e.g., one gets Schaeffer, Van Til, Bahnsen, Edgar, Oliphint, and Lillback, though that is not apparent until the lectures were downloaded. Not that I’m disappointed in the end.) iTunes was designed for distributing pop music, not lecture series, and the differences are apparent.

    Thanks…this will make some good summer listening.

  5. Tad says:

    Gah, Itunes, why cant they just have links to the MP#’s available to download? Itunes is so bloated and it does not run on my computer.

  6. Richard says:

    Tad is right. Why Itunes–it’s a pain. Has anyone figured out a quick way to download these to an MP3 player?

    1. MF says:

      Tad and Richard,

      There is a way to do it without iTunes, as mentioned in my comment above. In short, go to wts.edu and register for a free media account. I listened to many of their lectures this way before WTS joined iTunes.

      You can also browse the iTunes U catalog in your browser (e.g., http://itunes.apple.com/itunes-u/urban-evangelism/id430337795 ), but you must download the files through iTunes. When you do, they are MP3s without DRM, so you can manage them with some other app or download them to any MP3 player.

      BTW, for iTunes haters, Covenant has their lectures at WorldWideClassroom.com. RTS only has theirs on iTunes, however.

  7. Richard says:

    MF,

    Thanks! I was aware of the Westminster free account, just ticked they went wholesale to iTunes. I’m going to have to figure out how to download iTunes quickly to my MP3s; I’m an idiot when it comes to these things, but iTunes doesn’t make this easy.

    1. MF says:

      Richard, WTS hasn’t moved wholesale to iTunes, at least not yet. Their media page still has lots of MP3s, considerably more than iTunes, in fact. The WTS.edu-hosted media also includes at least some of the content from the iTunes U listings (didn’t check for all of it!). See here: http://wts.edu/resources/media.html

      Tolle Audi — Take up (er, download) and listen! And enjoy!

    Good news for Linux users (at least, there are installers available for Ubuntu/Debian based operating systems, Fedora/Red Hat based operating systems, and for Android): TunewsViewer

    http://tunesviewer.sourceforge.net/

    Simple “frontend” specifically for iTunesU. Works very well for me.
