Very informative and interesting study, brings bible times to life and puts it in context.

Glen Cullen

Yes. It is a shame that the ruins of Nineveh will never be found as it would give a clear indication of what it actually was like unless there were photos in books that were easily accessible.

Sue Webster

Biblical history and ancient history once again intersect. This course will help you understand how the Bible fits in to real world events. Highly recommend.
