While explaining the various Christian churches, it gets a little jumbled. Otherwise, this course is a decent introduction.

Have you listened to any of Professor Luke Timothy Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, no sure I want to.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I did learn a lot.
Any additional comments?
I lost trust in the lecture once the incorrect historical information on some items was presented, I wondered what else was changed to meet modern progressive revisionist history. First refereeing to Palestine in Jesus time is incorrect, there was no Palestine until 70AD. Then the reference to the Crusades was miss-represented, yes the 4th Crusade did invade Constantinople, but it was not the last Crusade, and reasons for it are wrong. There are one or two other items that where incorrect. I am not sure if the lecturer actually does not know, or modified to meet modern agenda. I am losing interest in the Great Course as their lectures are no sticking to the facts. I noted this in the Jewish lecture as well, and see my comments on the Islam course.
