I do love churches, so this course was the first one I watched after I signed up for my year subscription. It did not disappoint and I watched them all. Being a photographer, the only thing I wished was that Professor Cook called ME up to accompany him and take his pictures, as they were sometimes lacking. ;)

Loved this course, learned so much!! The thing I enjoy most about the Great Courses is that the professors have such broad knowledge of the subject matter, plus the ability to impart the information in a way that holds your attention. Professor Cook brings architecture, history, theology, art history, geography, cultural studies, even a bit of archaeology - and more into this wonderful tour of the world's great churches, making each one special and unique. I will definitely watch this course all the way through again sometime for deeper understanding.
