Pretends to be open to others opinions, but in actuality is more about his own opinions than others. Will assign many difficult readings, but go over only a few of them.He will go out of his way to help you, but be warned that he may be brutally honest. If your up for a challenge and are willing to debate with the professor than take him.

This man is hands down the worse professor I have ever taken at King's. I thought I was scheduled for a religion core not an English class. He assigns readings and written assignments every day which are collected. He doesn't lead lecture so the readings meaning are never clarified. Avoid at all costs, I wish I did.

Nice guy, tells some jokes that are so bad they are funny. Easy quizzes online, test are essays that he hands out. Papers are challenging and his grading is tough but class isn't bad

The course requires reading ahead of time. The reading may not seem clear at the time, but Dr. Malesic does a good job of putting it together during class. Missing a class will not help you at all. Make sure you are there. The exams are not just restating material but putting together the concepts that were taught. This course is very interesting.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!! He makes his class seem like it is the most important class a student has to take. His grading system is ridiculous! I thought I wrote the best paper in my college career and got a C. Also, he requires an absurd amount of reading considering it is a core class. Please do not take if you know what is good for you!

He is a good teacher. Any time you need help, he will do his best to help. He does required alot of reading for homework, but his tests seemed pretty straight forward. Review your notes, pay attention in class and you will do fine. oh and gives lots of reading pop quizzes!

He talks like he knows everything, he is stuck up and very unaware that he is teaching a core class. The material the class had to read was the hardest stuff I read in my life. He has no concept that the class means nothing to anybody. He also instructs students to leave if they are not interested, then he gets angered when students do leave.

He focused on one topic all year round to make his case for his beliefs. He also found it rather amusing to say things behind students backs, such as they act like high schoolers, after telling students to leave if not interested in the subject at hand. He couldn't tell that no one was interested in what he was saying. Lectures = hell.

Class content is ridiculous for a core class. He insists that you never leave class early because "its a waste of your tuition" and he asks an exorbitant amount of information on his test, with absolutely no review prior.

I was never bored in this class; we were always talking about interesting ideas, even if they were off-topic. He actually made me interested in theology, which I never thought was possible. I highly recommend taking Dr. Malesic for theology. Just do the readings and participate/listen in class and you will do fine on the tests and papers.

Malesic seems to know his stuff. There are classes where I come out feeling as though I genuinely learned something. Then, there are times where I felt that he should have known more about a topic. It's a mix of good and okay teaching - classes are held in discussion format. He is a hard grader on papers and exams - pay attention to detail!

He's adorable! I think previous raters are being way too harsh on him, in my Belief & Unbelief classe only a handful of students would participate in the group discussion. I had a great time contributing and I felt like I learned a lot from the class, it was easy to understand as long as you read what he assigns. Tests are essays, but fine.

Although attendance is mandatory, perfect attendance is not rewarded. Neither is your ability to discuss and debate the topics being studied. Funny thing is, he encourages group discussions but doesn't add strong participation into the final grade. If you are riding between a B- and a B, your serious participation will get you nowhere.

This was definitly one of the most interesting classes that I have taken. He has thorough knowledge of the subject and explains the concepts well.

If you want to know what it's like to go to hell and back, take this class. This guy dresses like he's a model out of a Gap catelog and admits strange things to the class, like not knowing the subject at hand and having no friends in high school.

Belief and Unbelief is a cool class, and he does a good job teaching it. He tries to engage the class as much as possible. The reading is at times a bit much, but if you pretend you read it you will get by ;-)
