Before I started taking this course, I believed I knew everything about these three books of the bible, but I found that I knew only small amounts. The kind of things they teach you in Sunday school. I found this course interesting, and helpful to my studying.

The course was good, however I thought it would be more detailed on each book and not just an overview. Great class overall.
