Instructor comments:

Required for this course: The Bible — Historical and Literary Introduction by B. Ehrman (either hard copy or etext version)

Highly Recommended for this course: a hard copy of The New Oxford Annotated Bible, NRSV with the Apocrapha

R 212 is a 4-credit course.  What that means according to PCC's academic guidelines is that we all (students and faculty) are expectred to spend an average of 12 hours per week doing our work.  However, in most cases, between 8 and 10 hours per week should suffice.

Note that a Field Trip — on your own OR with classmate(s) — to a Christian place of worship (i.e., a church or a congregation) will be a requirement for this course — students are expected to attend either a worship service or a Bible Study and then provide a Field Trip Presentation about that visit.  If we are srtill experiencing "Stay At Home" or "Safer At Home" this term AND places of worship or meditation are not accessible, then your Field Trip may be made virtually, online.  Resources and links will be available.
