    | Would highly recommend.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This is one of my favorite courses at UMHB to date. Dr. Crawford really brings the ancient text to life and engages it in a way I had never encountered, even having grown up in the church. I would take this course again and again if I were allowed.

    Course highlights:

    The most enjoyable portions of this class were discussions of narrative passages, such as the book of Genesis and Esther. In these discussions, we really got to analyze the perspectives of characters and their motivations (much like you might do in a literature class). However, these experiences were so special because the characters were actual historical figures. I also really enjoyed our lectures over the kings of Israel and Judea.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    One of the best things you can do for yourself in this course is to actually DO the reading and turn in the written assignments. Lectures are so much more productive and test scores are way higher when you actually know what the professor is talking about. Also, if you don't have a biblical background, talk to Dr. Crawford. He will help you in the places you are struggling without judging you for your lack of knowledge.
