I've enjoyed the series. I'm halfway through the 12 hour lecture series now and have found it to be very informative. Not for those who are not willing to take a hard look at their faith, what it means and where it comes from, but quite enlightening. Be prepared to come away with more questions than answers, but isn't that the whole point in learning?

The bible is somewhat narrowly focused. This course gives a broad background and explanation of events described in the gospels. He discusses Roman culture and law, Jewish culture and law, the early Christian churches, other prophets, other historians of the day, etc. I thought it was a great course. If, however, you believe that everything in the bible is literally true, then you may not like this course, because he says that certain things are "not plausible."

Like so many people looking for answers, I have long wanted to separate religious beliefs surrounding Jesus from the known historical facts. Only in this way can I sort out my own thinking. Professor Ehrman does a remarkable job in guiding us down the fine line between history and religion. I believe his faith shows through, yet does not apparently taint his historical judgment. I consider this quite a feat! I came away with some much needed clarity.

If you are looking for Biblical theology, skip this. Just a lot of anti-religion angst.
