On the first day of class I loved him because he's so young, funny, and energetic! However, as the course went on his class got really hard and it seems like he expects too much for a 100 level course. He's a great guy and I respect him a lot, but unless you have a strong background in theology, I don't recommend taking him.

Great Teacher recommend him to anyone. He is really a nice guy and he works with you when you need help. I don't know why other people dislike him because he is a pretty knowledgeable teacher and one of my favorites. Must take professor.

Dr. Carney really knows his stuff. However, he fails to understand that nobody cares about the discussions as much as he does. He is almost too smart to be teaching an introduction course. Overall, it's just a GPA killer.

Dr. Carney is one of the best professors at Creighton. Many people complained that it was too hard, but i found that if you did the work, you got an A. He is so fun to be in class with and enthusiastic. Makes all powerpoints available. Grades are multiple choice tests, participation (easy 100), and 4 response essays (two pages, easy A). TAKE HIM!!

Dr. Carney is a solid choice for a theology class. I had no prior knowledge in this subject and did quite well. His class is not that hard as long as you do the work. Basic layout for his class is 3 exams which aren't too bad as long as you study, 4 1-2 page papers, and a 4-5 page paper on a historical figure. Really enthusiastic too. Take him.

Dr. Carney keeps the class interesting with constant enthusiasm. Good morning class for me. People have complained about his tests, but I think they are straightforward. Also, start the project early. I didn't and thats the one thing that prevented me from getting an easy..

This class was awesome. Dr. Carney is an amazing teacher. The key is taking good notes. I never read the textbook, but I paid attention in class and took really good notes and did very well in his class. Dr. Carney is super passionate about this subject and I thoroughly enjoyed this class and his teaching style.

Great teacher, very passionate about Theology. His lectures are very clear, taking notes and paying attention is a must. He posts powerpoints online, which makes things easier, and reading the textbook is necessary (although boring). Very cool teacher, very tough grader, worth taking.

Dr. Carney is not that bad! If you actually put the effort into the class you will do fine. He is really funny and really passionate about the subject matter. I feel like he has taught me so much and I do not regret having him for THL 100. Put the appropriate time into it and you will get at least a B. Do not be scared to take him. He is not bad!

He is a nice, funny guy, who is really interested in theology. He knows his stuff. BRING YOUR LAPTOP TO CLASS! He posts the powerpoints online, so you can type addition info he says in lectures. He grades pretty tough but if you study your notes, and do the reading, you will be okay on exams.

DO NOT TAKE! He is awful for a 100 level course. Unless you have 15 hours a week to devote to theology, take someone else.

Dr. Carney is a great guy... But this class is super difficult for a 100 level class. Don't plan on getting an A on a test unless you list EVERYTHING that he thinks should be on each essay. Great guy, Great Teacher, Difficult Class, Made it Awful Combination.

Dr. Carney is a great guy. His lectures are very detailed and he expects the same level of detail on each of his tests. The class is based on 3 tests (lowest 1 dropped) as well as a take home essay final exam. Also, there is a presentation and a paper as well. His class is tough and I think he would be a great higher level teacher- not THL 100.

He is funny, knows his material, and is passionate about it. His tests can be difficult, but he gives a study guide saying exactly what it will be over, including the possible essays. I paid attention in class and reviewed the study guide to receive an A on every test and paper. If you don't blow it off as an easy 100 level class you will be fine.

This professor is a great guy, however, he is extremely difficult. He admits to being tough on grading. Definitely do not take him if you are new to theology! My mistake! However, if you are good at theology the class should be interesting.

If you feel like taking a class completely by yourself and have no help from the teacher take this class. All the lectures are boring lists of facts off the powerpoints. His tests are long and hard to complete within the time period. So if you want to be frustrated, welcome......

Dr. Carney tries to be really funny and has some of the cornyest jokes ever. But BEWARE he is a very difficult grader and this class will kill your GPA. Even though he says to come in and ask for help he still doesn't get your questions answered. Personally don't think that he should be teaching a 100 level class. Good Luck!

Dr. Carney is a great teacher. He gives study guides that tell everything that will be on the test, explicitly stating the essays. Great guy, great class!

He is a super fun and energetic guy who cracks corny jokes and is SOMETIMES really funny in lecture. HOWEVER, beware. He will kill your gpa. Try reading the book, looking up on google, referring to lecture, memorizing every date he gives you and you will still do no better than a C on the tests. Really subjective grader.Awful experience. Dont take
