“I think there is excellent content in this course; I believe it helps contextualize morality within the Christian faith journey. That God gave us the desire for happiness so as to draw us to Himself, is a powerful and far-reaching point to reflect upon. Thanks for making that point very clear. The quiz is a useful tool, but I think it needs to be a bit more demanding at times. Some of the incorrect answer choices, whilst amusing, nevertheless detract from the challenge of identifying the correct answer from the choice of two available for each and every question. Possibly a choice from three would be better, thus allowing capacity for both challenge and humour in the options to choose from. Thanks again for the course. I look forward to the next one on morality. ”→Read Less
