Balmer, Randall Silver_nugget
religion and american culture

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

This guy is the man. The material isn't challenging at all, but he's a really good, entertaining lecturer. He can make fun of the more conservative Christian groups sometimes, so don't take the class if you can't take a joke. But he's just awesome, it's so much fun, and I learned a surprising amount. The exams were easy, but annoying, because they focus on random details rather than concepts. I highly recommend this class.

Workload:

non-cumulative midterm and final (you can finish in 15 minutes if you know your stuff), 2 response papers or a research paper. Some reading that you should do.
