Adjunct Again

Well, I'm teaching Bible again at OVU. This time it's BIB 107: Acts thru Revelation. (you read that right, Acts thru Revelation). That might seem like a lot, but the last class I taught was Introduction to the Bible, where I covered the entire Bible in one semester (so, this time I get to "take my time" ;) ).

My required texts are a Study Bible (I'm fine with any translation except KJV...and I'll still allow even that), and Scot McKnight's Embracing Grace: A Gospel for All of Us. I decided to include McKnight's book to encourage theological reflection on the text. There are also quite a few non-required texts, from which I will be using smaller selections.

There are 30 students in the class from various religious (though mostly Christian) backgrounds. One student is a Sikh from Canada. I really enjoy this stuff.

Awesome dude. Good choice with the McKnight text. It's a good one. Although, I'm not sure how much I would enjoy teaching "Acts thru Revelation". Wow. Good luck, brother.
