    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Encountering the Bible is a required course at Messiah, so it really comes down to who you want to hear from. Some students don't like Professor Seibert because he takes a non-traditional approach to the Bible, questioning its authority and prompting students to determine for themselves what they believe. In the end, he does not provide any hard and fast answers for you. If you prefer this method rather than being told what to believe (as I've heard the other professors do), then definitely take Seibert's class. Overall I still think Encountering the Bible is a lot of busywork and a waste of money, but as long as it's required, think about taking Seibert.

    Course highlights:

    There are no excuses not to get an A in this sort of course. That's the main thing I learned. (Alright, I got an A-.) But in all seriousness, as long as you do the writing assignments -- tedious as they are -- you will get a good grade. Make sure you do the reading and you'll be fine. And hey -- you might get your faith shaken up. You might learn something new. Don't be that kid who sleeps in the back, and give it an honest go.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do you work. That is really all that is required of you. Sit down, bang out the essays, and you're good. It wouldn't hurt to put some thought into them, either.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it to anyone who wants to further their Bible knowledge and further their religious Faith. This class is not only educational but also helpful to learn about everyday life and how you should serve God on this earth.

    Course highlights:

    The highlight of the course was when we read and analyzed the book of Jonah. It is one of the smallest books in the Bible but its has so much good information and lessons within it.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you stay on top of the reading and actually do the assigned readings. In any college course it is important to do the reading for general knowledge but in this course it is absolutely essential.
