The course develops ways of considering the Hebrew Bible that empowers a believer in another faith tradition with a greater scope to look beyond assumptions about literal truths and polemic tropes.
It's a very good course if you want to know how the bible came into being, events that happened from the very beginning and how the bible continues to remain and be read even today. Wonderful!

The most detailed MOOC I have ever seen. Very high quality videos, presentation and content. I like the fact that there are many links to explore and do futher learning.
Some of the transcription is a little ropey/plain wrong and you have to google what you think you've heard to get the word/name etc. And there are the odd fragments where a question is asked and then it goes off on a tangent and you're not quite sure if you did actually get the answer but otherwise a really, really good course and excellent instructor.

I just completed The Bible's Prehistory, Purpose and Political Future which was fascinating and informative. Dr. Wright's book "David" was helpful and enlightening. However, I did not expect the amount of reading involved in the module reading section; I do intend to go back and read some of the papers that I was not able to read at the time. This course has definitely encouraged me to explore further into this subject. Thank you for allowing me to participate. Carolyn Smith

Only suggestions are that due to many foreign words used by Prof Wright and his guests, I suggest the transcriptions should be updated to include the foreign words and correct spellings which unfortunately is not always up to standard.
Overall an interesting course which, despite having troubles with some of the foreign (Jewish words mainly) words, I can recommend the course. Personally I have learned a lot.

Excellent course, the only comment I would like to add is just let the interviewed develop more deeply their comments. Nevertheless, it is a very touching and well-prepared course. Astonishing extra material to keep on studying.
Thanks and keep on going

Very complex and tedious subject.

Very self serving course. Interesting subject matter, but have to pay in order to submit very basic questions. Lots of interviews with other academics and lots of name dropping.
Don’t waste your time.

Can't actually be done as a free course, like others on the site; you have to pay just to get a quiz grade.
