Somerville, Robert Silver_nugget
Christianity

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This intro to christianity course was good if you want an easy course with very little work and you want to learn a little something along the way. Go to lectures, take a couple of notes, and listen. Don't bother doing the readings (except for the coursepack). Oh - and go to the discussion sections. This will boost your grade and tell you EXACTLY what is on the quizzes (aka midterms) and what to write for them. Prof. Somerville is a dry and somewhat boring lecturer and the material covered was pretty general nonpsecific. it was a bit of waste of time, but a poretty good way to get an easy A.

Workload:

2 quizzes which are passage analyses that are 25% of your grade. An ungraded response to visitng the St. John the Divine Cathedral. A final, 50% of your grade which you've been given the essays to before, a passage analysis, and some true and false questions that are pretty easy. There isn't that much reading and the only part necessary is the coursepack.
