I currently attend a conservative Christian seminary and it's refreshing to hear Amy-Jill's perspective. She is a phenomenal lecturer and her ability to connect points from the Tanakh to the Christian New Testament is insightful. I like that she does not seem to be tied to a specific denomination or background, but can easily speak from different perspectives and interpretations, often bringing extrabiblical resources as well. If you're interesting in learning more of the OT, I can't recommend highly enough.

Amy-Jill is a phenomenal lecturer and a natural educator. I echo her wish at the end for her to have had more lectures to go over more material because there really is so much. She brings a non-biased approach to the Old Testament, looking at it through historical and literary lenses, not just religious. Eloquent and fun, Amy-Jill deserved not only more lectures in this course but also deserved more courses to teach in general here on the Great Courses Plus. This unexpectedly ended up being one of my favorite courses here.
