From anonymous evaluation forms:
Such amazing, eye-opening, helpful information. The fruits of your study research digging are so helpful…
Getting exposed/acquainted to the ancient extracanonical texts for the first time – now I need to go home and study them.
Interested in non-canonical healings; how early Christian churches organized; explanations about the Council of Nicea and its impact on history; closer historical context; great perspective: explanations through good metaphors.
There was so much here that I could take this again and continue to learn more — have more texts been found? Grateful for all. I think you were very thorough. I appreciate your bibliography and back-up for many of the ideas given.
I enjoyed all of it and got a lot out of it.
