The files presented here represent the full extant collection of audio recordings made of the main theme speeches, individual classes and special events held at the annual Bible Lectureship and Summit. For many years only the plenary addresses and a few theme speeches were recorded. We have a much fuller selection of recordings from recent years. We identify the files according to the labels used on the reel or tape container.

Pictured here is a plenary session of the 1968 Lectureship in the newly-opened Moody Coliseum.
