The course gave a good broad overview of the books of 2 Samuel, 1 Kings, and 2 Kings which otherwise includes incredible details of people, times, events, and places. The course was helpful in identifying the major themes in these books and contributes to my overall understanding of the Bible as a whole. I would recommend this course to others.
