    Though I am moved by Dr. Keener's humility, and regard him as an awesome teacher, I was a bit dissapointed with this course. As with Keener's other works, I was expecting some meat on this bone. I found it to be a very general introduction at best rather than an indepth look. I was also frustrated by his frequent default to a more preterist interpretation rather than historical or futuristic. Being a general intro of sorts, I wish he had at least, if only briefly, exposed us to the historical/futuristic views. Overall, love Keener and have a deep respect for him. Appreciate his devotion and committment to the Lord. Would I buy again knowing what I know now? Probably not:( Would I recommend to others? Suppose it would, but would also direct them to a few others resources to round off their exposure....

    Informative, even handed and interestingly presented. Always points us to Christ.

    I really enjoyed this course. Dr Keener exudes genuine humility in his teaching, something that is not usually common amongst the ME courses.

    I really enjoyed this course and the instructor. I appreciate how he treated different views with respect as well as showing how people historically viewed the book incorrectly and showing why from the scripture itself. This course was a delight, has the gospel throughout, and is encouraging. I look forward to digesting more of this over time. Keener keeps the audience of the time as well as the application for the church through time in view. Much appreciated. I am a bible student and do not hold a particular view of eschatology at this time, though my fellowship holds amillennial.

    I was excited to have this mobile ed course. However, a lot of the content is in The Bible Back Ground Commentary and the NIV Application Commentary, both by Dr. Keener. While I enjoy seeing and hearing Dr. Keener teach, I could have saved a lot of money because I have these two books (hard copy). In fact, at the beginning of the course, Dr. Keener said, "So I’ve written one book, actually, that’s very relevant to this course, a commentary on Revelation; and also in my IVP Bible Background Commentary, the section in Revelation incorporates much of the same material in a more accessible format". I hope this post will assist others who are considering the purchase. The videos do have a transcript that accompany each segment and suggestions for further study along with activities that I have not used. I am presently on the church in Pergamum and the experience is the same so far.

    My wife and I are still deciding whether we will subscribe. One question is...does the material that accompanies the lectures (if that is the structure)...does the material come in a paper book as part of the subscription or online or both?
  10. Bradley Novacek
    Anyone know if this is coming from a particular eschatological position, or if it addresses the text from multiple positions?
