Great Intro to the Subject
Pretty easy, overall.
Dr. Long is excellent at communicating basic Bible scholarship to a classroom of Christians who are familiar with the Bible as well as non-Christians who are not. She teaches literary and historical criticism of the Bible in a way that is graspable to all.
I learned about the use of narrative, poetry, and myth in the Bible. I also learned about reading the Bible critically and taking the personal agendas of various Bible authors into account.

Advice for students:
If you are a Christian, don't put up a wall to this course. Let new information about the Bible influence and enrich your faith.
