Pretty easy, overall.
Professor Sydnor is the most dedicated and knowledgeable professor I have ever worked with in a theology course. His insight and passion lead the course and create a fun and discussion based class. He pulls in speakers and articles from all sides of the discourse and creates and environment where everyone can feel comfortable, no matter their beliefs.
This course explored the dynamic relationship of science and religion. It looked all all sides of the argument from neo-atheists who want to abolish religion to New Earth Creationists who follow the Bible to the letter. And of course, all of the moderate views in between. The professor is able to pick apart all arguments related to the topic and open your mind to issues that students may have never considered in the past.

Advice for students:
There is a lot of reading as a part of this course, but all of the articles are incredibly interesting and lead to a better understanding of the topics at hand. As the articles span the discourse, panning back and forth across both ends of the extreme spectrum, there is something for everyone in this course. I highly recommend doing the reading and staying on top of the writing assignments. While the class initially seems like a lot of work due to the writing assignments, they are very quick one page discussions of your thoughts on the reading. Nothing too hard. It is easy to accomplish in the time line given.
