This course made me realize how much I didn’t know about teaching the Bible and gave me much to ponder on and consider. I’ll keep in mind that when I go to read or study the Bible, that all Scripture is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting, and training in righteousness so that I can be fully equipped. I will also be making use of the recommended study tools.Pauline

Good course! Especially liked the supplemental information. Thank you for this course, may God bless all who were involved in it.Kim
Definitely a start regarding becoming and being an effective Bible teacher. I appreciate that the lecturer was clear that this is only an introduction and is intended for those lay-persons who find that they have the privilege of teaching God’s word in a non-academic environment. We definitely need more lay-teachers in the work environment, on secular campuses, at the neighborhood diner, even on public transportation. This was a very helpful course. Thank you.Pamela
