The references to de Boer in the "Reading" column below simply point you to the pages
of the commentary that relate to the passages discussed on a particular
Sunday. I have no expectation about how many people, if any,
will use this commentary. It's enrichment for those who wish to use it,
not an assignment.

Here is the syllabus in PDF format.

I have designed this study to accommodate those who miss some of the classes or cannot participate at all.
The hyperlinks on the dates in the table above take you to an MP3 of the class. The links on the topics take you to additional notes
and handouts I hope you will find useful.
