"Preach the Gospel to every creature" - (Mark 16:15)

"Every speech is left incomplete" - (Qo 1:8)

 

 

 

The advanced course is a complete and deep synthesis of Christian thought and teachings. It can be seen as the following and natural complement of the basic course on the Foundations of Christianity.

 

Rev. Piero Ottaviano devised this course as a cultural presentation, extremely rigorous, punctual and well-documented.

It is meant for people who either believe or not, and it’s especially useful for school teaching.

 

Reflecting the original edition, subdivided in three volumes, you can find below the printable .pdf files of each chapter of the complete course (in Italian tongue, for the moment being).
