    The military decisions and choices made in the Bible makes more sense when the outlay of the land is shown in perspective to the life and means available for the time. Simply reading about it when only sparse description is available often don't really make sense without the complete background. This course is doing well in describing the full picture.

    This very few moments into the course has not just broadened by knowledge but also renewed my perspective and assumptions due to lack of knowledge

    this was a very enlightening course,the tutor was very enthusiastic , loved the photographs, I realize after all these years the religious teachers here have not been telling us enough about the bible, I am glad that I now have invested to learn about the bible.
