    | Would recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a good course for those with or without formal Biblical education that makes you think about many of the things in the Bible that we don't think about or haven't thought about extensively.

    Course highlights:

    The books that we went through (The Epic of Eden, The Lost World of Adam and Eve) made interesting points about topics that we don't usually think about. A lot of the propositions in those books are also just made to make you think and probably shouldn't be stated as Biblical fact, but there are those propositions with a lot of backing that you can't really ignore. The books are probably something I'm going to hold onto for at least a little while and I may go back to them eventually.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read the books and Scripture passages that you are assigned to read. You'll do way better in that class if you know what the prof is talking about in regards to your reading.

    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The class was extremely easy, which may seem like a positive, but it was TOO easy. The material covered was basic enough for anyone with surface-level knowledge of the Bible could pass the course with little to no study.

    Course highlights:

    While I frowned upon the lack of challenge the course provided, it was a nice break from the rigors of a generally difficult course of study (engineering). If you're looking for a class which reminds you of knowledge you already have while striving to avoid difficulty, this is the course for you.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    As far as studying goes, do only what you need. This course isn't meant to challenge you to learn new material, but to challenge whether you actually believe in what you know.
