The lecture for Lesson 3 was a lot to comprehend in one sitting.Charlene
Some of it was review, and it is good to review important details of Scripture and proper methods of study – easy to get sloppy with that. I appreciated some of the dissection of Proverbs.Matthew

The course provided me with more systematic understanding on the books of Psalms and Proverbs. The contents are academic as well as devotional. It has also given me a much clearer perspective as I read those scriptures.
