This course aims to aid students in obtaining general knowledge of the Bible and assist them in getting basic understanding of its messages. In the first half of each class, students are requested to learn about the Bible by group or individual presentation based on the chapters of the textbook. In the second half of the class, more emphasis is put on appreciating the messages of the Bible by silent reading and oral reading and connecting them with our daily experiences. Students are highly expected to share their ideas and opinions during the class. The course will be conducted primarily in English.
