Other denominations

Roman Catholicism
– William Webster’s lectures on ‘Roman Catholic Tradition: It’s Roots and Evolution’ is excellent for understanding the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.
James White’s debates with Roman Catholics are so helpful for understanding both sides of the argument.

Pentecostalism
Strange Fire Conference, including talks by John MacArthur, R.C. Sproul and Joni Eareckson Tada.

Theology

– R.C. Sproul has some great free teaching series. Some good ones to start with are ‘Chosen by God’, ‘Justification by Faith Alone’ and ‘The Holiness of God’.
– If you want to get really deep into Christian theology, listen to lectures from some of the great theologians of our time at Westminster Seminary on iTunes. I recommend Scott Oliphint’s lectures on the Doctrine of God, Carl Trueman on the Reformation and Cornelius Van Til on Christ and Human Thought.
– This talk on the Trinity
– In 2014 Michael Horton gave an excellent series of lectures on the Holy Spirit. Check them out here.

The Bible
