This was the 1st course that I have taken. The lecture, personal reflection and study guide were very beneficial and helpful in challenging me to go beyond the factual and concentrate on my spiritual walk with the Lord. Presenting the lecture in three formats made the course more interesting. Overall I was very pleased.Cheryl
