    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I highly recommend this course because Dr. Shepard describes the New Testament in a detailed and concrete way. People who go to Sunday school might think they know everything about the bible, but Dr. Shepard elaborates the bible by giving a lot of context on the historical view.

    Course highlights:

    Throughout this course, I have learned about how this world came to be. More specifically, how the resurrection of Jesus Christ changed the world. When you think and complain how difficult life is, you will feel amazed when this course describes the suffering Jesus Christ went through. What we complain about is nothing compared to what he went through.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Get ready to read and beware of pop quizzes. Also, prepare to write a few essays which might reflect about your spiritual life.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class is engaging and constantly ties back to how we live our own life. You learn so much and won't read the Bible the same afterwords.

    Course highlights:

    I learned practical ways to walk out my faith. I also learned a lot that helped support and defend my faith.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Go to class and pay attention. A lot of the exam questions are from the lectures. Take notes and look them over with the lecture slides for exams and you will be fine.

    | No strong feelings either way.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course to other Biola University students because I was able to grow academically, mentally, and spiritually with the exercises and subjects Dr. P brought us through throughout the semester. Not only that but he was very good at entertaining and engaging the students by the way he would read certain readings with dramatic background music.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlight of this course was right before we would take our exams, whether it was our mid-term or our final exam, he would encourage us to strike a "power pose" to help our performance in worshipping God through our test. It brought a lot of confidence to the students and helped to get rid of any test-taking nerves.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    I would say to ask a lot of questions during class, especially if it is a bigger class. This is so that the professor can remember you better and it will help you to learn and remember things mentioned in the course.
