About

Hi!  I’m Rob Betts, married and resident in Leicestershire, UK.

I graduated with a degree in Horticultural Botany from Reading University in 1976 and a postgraduate diploma in librarianship from Liverpool Polytechnic (now Liverpool John Moores University) in 1978.  I work as an information scientist in the food industry – for many years fulltime, but now part-time from home.

I came to know Jesus as my Saviour not long before I went up to University.  After my time at Liverpool, I lived for many years in Epsom, Surrey (where I met my wife) and was during that time part of a local ‘house church’.  This church was one of a loose-knit group of ‘house fellowships’ associated with the ministry of such people as G.W. (Wally) North, Norman Meeten, Edgar Parkyns, Ron Bailey and a number of other preachers and teachers.   We moved to the East Midlands recently, and we attend a local evangelical church.

I’ve had an interest in theology over three decades, but have no formal theological training.  My theological understanding would best be described as Reformed and charismatic.  Many writers and speakers have shaped my theological understanding over the years.  They include (in addition to the preachers and teachers in our group of house fellowships) such people as (in no particular order) Arthur C. Custance, William J. Dumbrell, T. Desmond Alexander, Gregory K. Beale, C.S. Lewis, Geoffrey C. Bingham, Gordon D. Fee, Meredith G. Kline, Peter J. Leithart, Erich Sauer, Bruce K. Waltke, and Gordon J. Wenham. But in reality, I owe a debt to a whole host of writers who, to varying degrees, have formed and informed my own understanding.

    I can only find the audio for week one yet I think other sessions were being broadcast recently.
    Are the rest available?

    • Hi Larry
      It’s good to hear from you. Yes, the Big Journey is now available as a series of 30 talks in MP3 format of between 15 and 20 minutes long from New Life Radio HERE. They’re a simplified version of the sixteen PDF pamphlets available on the home page. I have updated the website, and you can now find the link to the talks in the ‘Audio series’ tab on the main menu.
      Blessings
      Rob
