This question is not applicable to this title or most other audio courses. Would listen to other courses by this professor.
Sections covering the Greek and Roman cultures, including the decline of Rome, were especially interesting.
Good, enthusiastic speaker. Well organized and he makes clear the main, take-away points, which is so important for an audio course.
History of the World Part I ... Maybe Monty Python and the Holy Grail
Along the lines of a Western Civ class.
Along the lines of a Western Civ class. The professor does a great job discussing the underlying developments and themes of European history.
Content was very basic and presented in a dull, lackluster manner. A real waste of time. Thought it would be along the lines of the excellent book "Lies My Teacher Taught Me" but not even close.
This course needs a total rework.
Debated whether even to get this book or not - NOT a fan of EWTN and but saw part of one episode on PBS and was impressed. Fr Barron presents an even handed overview of Catholic theology full of lively details and thoughtful insight. Only quibble is with his minimal mention of collegiality within the Church.
Fr. Barron's narration is very good - a lot of authors are poor narrators but not the case here.
The art work, churches, etc discussed in the book are for the most part, are commonly recognized, i.e. Sistine Chapel, and easy to visualize while listening.
