Prof Rick is an amazing lecturer! I personally felt he approached the course in a very objective manner, which appeals to all and makes the subject matters discussed approachable to students who don't profess the faith but nevertheless interested in the course. Succinctly covered major topics in the Bible according to book order and dealt with them in high academic regard. Basically, you don't feel like he's preaching to you even though he's an ordained minister! Very open to suggestions and not as conservative as you might think he will be, being in his 60s and all.
