As a Christian I am rather sensitive to how my faith is communicated. I was generally pleased with this presentation on Christianity. There were plenty of issues I had, but they were of lesser importance (like, why take time to explain Quakers when there are only 87,000 of them (if that) in the US, or why go into great depth about Easter Bunnies and Christmas trees and their - pagan - history?) But, most importantly, I thought he explained Jesus and his life/death very well. The difficult thing to do in a course like this is explain all the different religions in a "nice" (i.e. politically correct) way. Sometimes it was just a BIT over the top when he tried to present all the world religions in a positive way. I appreciate the kind efforts, but of course if you take this to its logical end, we would have to forget that religion is supposed to be TRUE - and that all religions can't be true. It doesn't really matter how wonderful the rituals of a religion are and how nice the people are. What matters is if it is true. And, sadly, this course doesn't address that issue.
