    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    A) The teacher is an absolute peach. She is positively brilliant and cares about her students more than any other teacher. B) I have a better understanding of the Christian religion because of this class.

    Course highlights:

    Reading almost the entire Bible has served to illuminate where my knowledge is lacking but it also gives rise to new questions and ideas, which is what most classes should do.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is the most common advice for most students but I highly suggest you to not procrastinate. My case is peculiar because I work more efficiently under pressure but Derck hands out a lot of work and if you don't watch out, it'll build up. Also, don't be afraid to ask questions! Give way to the doubts that rise up in your mind, even if they seem too sacrilegious.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    At Houghton College, it is required to take a Bible class. Biblical Literature has it's ups and downs. The class itself is pretty bland; the professor pretty much lectures the entire time and reads off his powerpoint. Some days we will have group discussions, but that's pretty rare. The good thing about this course is that there is not much homework. Every week it's the same thing: read the required Bible passages and journal about it. And the journals even have a detailed outline to follow, so there's not much effort put into what to write. So the class may be a tad boring, but it is easy and we do learn a lot about the Bible and how it was written.

    Course highlights:

    I learned a lot. Even when I was reading passages I have previously read, something new was revealed to me through how we learn about it in this class. It definitely does not give you a service level picture of the Bible. We dive deep into how the Bible is written and why it is the way it is.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do the readings and go to the review sessions. Let me repeat: GO TO THE REVIEW SESSIONS.
