Balmer, Randall Silver_nugget
religion and american culture

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

If you care at all about the material in the course, take this class. The man is brilliant and a dynamic lecturer. He also organizes the course very well, and the readings are great. One of the books on the syllabus is his own, but it's worth it-- the book is incredible as well. Balmer can come off a bit pompous, but he has reason-- he knows his stuff.

Workload:

four short (4-6 pages) papers, short midterm and final.
