I have to say that I have enjoyed it ! There was a lot to learn about the periods of the ages in the commentary, and I tried to get it all in perspective, and retain what I learned. I find all the courses great, and thank you for the learning experience.

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.
