I love these "legacy" lectures. I found Dr. Gerstner difficult in the beginning and I struggled with it but now I wish there were more by him. I learn so much from every one of the courses I take. God bless you for being there!
Great course. Very interesting.
I belong to the Facebook Group Reformed Church History, where I have recently linked your site and highly recommended others take advantage of the great things you offer here. I have enjoyed listening to the teachings of John Gerstner before and this course was such a great find that I had to take it!
