Dr. Sholl is very passionate about THL and teaching. A really funny teacher that keeps the class interesting. There are 3 tests and 1 paper. Tests are easy, but a lot of writing. If you pay attention in class, take good notes, and skim the readings you'll pass the class.

Dr. Sholl is a great teacher. I was expecting to be really bored in class, but wasn't. He keeps class interesting and definitely has a passion for THL and teaching. Tests are ALL essay. Altho your hand might be sore bc of all the writing, it really isn't that hard. If you pay attention in class, take good notes, and skim readings you'll do fine.

This is a really great class. The tests are difficult, but it's very possible to do very well if you study. Class is interesting and Sholl knows what he's talking about.

Lectures make no sense, need to be able to ID every single reading that he has read, way too deep for a 100 level class. If you like Theology, go for it. If not, this class is not worth taking. The grade is only 3 tests and a paper. And his tests are impossible.

I loved Dr. Sholl! He is very passionate and intelligent about theology. I dropped a different THL class and joined his the first week and I'm so glad I did! He makes class interesting; most readings are primary sources or articles instead of a textbook. Tests are easy IF you read, pay attention in class, and take notes. He's definitely worth it!

Instructor provides extremely clear lectures that are easy to follow because he knows how to keep a class's attention so that they actually learn willingly and effectively no matter how obscure the topic. Loves to answer questions, often in great detail and in a fascinating fashion.

Amazing Teacher! Teaches class with no biases towards any religion. You learn a lot, but the class isn't easy. Show up and take a lot of notes. Make sure you understand the concepts.

If you want a decent grade in this class, you need to show up every day and literally write down almost everything he says and especially what he writes on the board. On tests, if you have a general idea of what you're talking about he'll give you most of the points. Overall, a very interesting teacher and I highly recommend him.

His lectures are sporadic and his tests are hard. But he's a really nice and cool guy. He's pretty funny. Do your reading and you will be fine.

This class was GREAT. I learned a lot in an interesting way. He's a really cool guy and says the funniest things. ASK QUESTIONS... he likes them and will answer them and they also make class more interesting.

Take Notes,Take Notes,Show Up to Class. Sholl is a good professor and knows what he is talking about but you have to take notes over everything he says. If you don't you will have a hard time studying for the tests. This is a high stakes class. There are only three tests and a paper so you have to do well on everything to get the grade you want.

I took this class last year and it was GREAT. Yes there are vocabulary sections on the tests but BELIEVE me they do help you. Just study them and you will be fine.. Attending class is really the key to succeeding in the class. If you miss one day you are sort of lost because he does cover a lot during class time. Overall, He is an AWESOME teacher.

He was a good teacher..I liked his class. The only thing is you have to remember exact quotes and be able to say where they came from. Take notes on what he says because he doesn't write it for you to copy..other then that its a pretty good class

At first I thought it was a difficult class but at the end, I changed my view. You just have to make sure you write down what he's saying because he doesn't really write stuff on the board or have some kind of visuals. Bring a laptop if you can and you will do fine on the exams. Pay attention to the greek words for vocab. Very helpful and smart
