    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    This class was the best part of my college experience so far. I am not a "bible freak", I go to church Christmas Eve and Easter and that's as religious as I get. But this class wasn't about how devoted you are in your faith, but about looking at the bible from a holistic point of view. Seeing the stories as representations of the time period, the words as significant in their not-so-subtle meanings. It was a wonderful class with a wonderful professor.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that the bible does not have to be all about faith but can also be a historical reference to a different people and their way of life. That the faith of millions of people is extremely diverse while still pertaining to the same book and why some stories matter to some when they are completely left out of the holy books of others. It was wonderful to see history and faith so interconnected in such a though-provoking environment. Frilingos never made any opinion seem less valuable than any others, he was great at encouraging group discussion and making the class engaging.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Take it! Be prepared to read from the bible and write roughly 1 page per week but I promise it won't feel like work. The grades for the papers are "Satisfactory," "Needs improvement," and, "Unsatisfactory," but I never saw anyone with anything less than Satisfactory. The papers are opinion based and the class is mainly thought-provoking socratic seminars. It rocks lol. And if you're not the talkative type, like me, it'll still make you think.
