Instructor comments:


The required textbook for this course is less expensive in the e-format.

I have strongly recommended a particular version of the Bible because it has excellent footnotes (which are not available in the online versions). However, you are able to access the Bible for free, online, if you prefer, at biblegateway.com.

The third title is not required, but strongly recommended. One week the reading from it is required, and that material is made available to everyone in the D2L page.
