I enjoyed this class, altho not as much as his class on Events that Changed History. The Prof has a decidedly Judeo-Christian perspective and political/econmic right bias. That said, the course is not a "just the facts" history course. It is a subjective look at the stories and deeds through the lens of analysis of this Professor. Overall, I thought it was worthwhile.
