Fair minded and informative. I 've listened to over 20 Teaching Company courses and this is definitely in the top three for me. I just signed a lease for a 2.6 KW wind turbine on a property I own, based in large part on the information I have learned and verified from this course. Thank you Professor Wysession.

In 36 thought-provoking lectures, you'll explore enlightening teachings that have inspired the world and that continue to speak to life's most important questions. Throughout, you'll benefit from Father Koterski's ecumenical perspective, as he presents these teachings within the Jewish and Christian traditions and compares the varying versions of these texts. What do these writings have to say about the great philosophical problems people seek to understand? You'll find out as you contend with the literal and figurative meanings behind some of the Bible's most essential books and parts (as well as some that many of us overlook).

For me the professor's presentation style detracted from the subject material, and I just could not get passed it.
