For your convenience, below is a zip file of this entire set of lectures. It does require that you have an unzipping utility of some kind on your computer. For you mac people this is built in.

Also, besides these free mp3 files accessible below, through the independent gracious initiative of a supporter of this site, one can obtain an audio cd set of this book. The effort has been made to make them available in an affordable a manner as possible. In light of the varying ability of persons to pay, a sliding scale has been designed by Shiloh in order to give people the opportunity to donate more so that others can also obtain this who have less means. I should mention that these are the hi resolution files and NOT the mp3 files. Lastly, please consider, those of you who are outside the united states, to choose an amount 5 dollars more to cover postal costs.
