This class already coming in handy

I am only one chapter into one of the books for my next grad. class (the book is “The Continuing Conversion of the Church” by Darrell Guder) and am already benefiting from the discussions of this class.  For example, if I had read “The Bible itself became a battleground as scholars refined and expanded the newly developed tools of historical and literary criticism” (Guder p. 16) before our class, I would have had no idea what was being talked about.  This book has mentioned the Enlightenment’s impact on Biblical interpretation and has mentioned Wellhausen and others that would have meant little to me before.  So already, I am better off from our class.
