    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because the reading material is engaging, the lectures are rewarding, and the Professor is superb. This was a reading and writing intensive course, so it was not easy, but I can honestly say that I was a changed person at the conclusion of this class. Professor Beers has a passion for the New Testament that is unparalleled. Her passion caused every student to be genuinely interested in her lectures while engaging in her questions and discussion. This class is very rewarding if you are a person of faith or not. You learn so much about the Bible in an academic atmosphere and it is a great experience.

    Course highlights:

    I loved this course, because it changed my faith and it opened my eyes to common misconceptions people have about the New Testament. I was able to delve deeper into the New Testament and dissect verses to discover what the most authentic interpretation of that verse would be. We went through the metaphorical nature of Revelation which was a view I've never studied before and greatly appreciated. I read more about who specifically wrote certain books of the New Testament and what they were like in that time and about their different purposes. By looking at the Bible in an academic environment, I was able to learn things that solidified my faith and encouraged me to learn more.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    If you are planning on taking this course, I would recommend doing all the reading. Professor Beers gives reading quizzes and likes to discuss the reading in class, so this would be beneficial. I would also encourage paying great attention to her lectures, because her tests are mostly based off of her PowerPoint presentations. Finally, I would encourage you to go to her office hours. As I mentioned previously, Professor Beers is an incredible woman with a passionate heart. She will help you improve and understand anything that you may be having trouble with.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was challenging, engaging, but not overwhelming. I found the homework and reading levels manageable, yet wide spread. They covered all the necessary material thoroughly without being exhaustive.

    Course highlights:

    I learned valuable biblical studies skills, widened my knowledge of the Old Testament, and also had some crash-course learning in time management, especially with long-term projects. Fisk is an excellent professor - engaging, funny, and very smart.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read all the books. There's a lot of them, but they're fairly easy and essential if you hope to do well. Take notes in lecture, but also know that your best learning will happen outside of the classroom in your personal study time. Fisk's class has a lot of unique lectures - student-led, videos, discussions, etc. When he actually lectures, pay attention ◡̈
