Each separate lesson comprises 5-15 pages (DIN A4

to make a direct contact with the facts that are to be presented. In
addition there is audiovisual information in the form of pictures,
graphs and musical samplers. Beyond being merely a medium for information

to inquiries and references to further sources of information. In

the knowledge already gained in greater detail.

the basic course and those who compiled it, but also between the
former and other experts.

Reformed Church" is being compiled by Dr.
Georg Plasger/Göttingen (texts) and Dr.
