Dr. Levine is a fantastic teacher. I agree that Bible history should be a major part of grade school, high school and college education. The problem is that there are not enough teachers like Dr. Levine.

The course presumes a greater familiarity with the Bible than I, unfortunately, possess. With that said, it was fascinating and I learned much and plan to continue to study. That's a great professor!
