Classes began today for the Spring semester. Well, I actually only had one class (Church History: Reformation-Present), but it’s going to be a doozy. We will have to read almost 3000 pages of books (not counting all the other books we will read to write two 10-page research papers), including a lovely 700-page tome called Creeds of the Churches. This book is bursting with–you guessed it!–creeds, church council decisions, confessions/statements of faith, and even a couple of early church letters thrown in for good measure. The book spans Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Baptist, and Methodist traditions, so I suppose that it will be worthwhile to read, but it will also be extremely boring at parts.I guess that’s what I get for taking a class from a guy who is just finishing up his Ph.D. work at Westminster Theological Seminary. Of my other four classes, I only have the syllabus for my Hebrew II class. My professor is going to allow us to skip the final if we get A’s on all the quizzes and tests through the semester. That’s going to be extremely difficult to pull off, but I have already been studying a ridiculous amount for the quiz that we are going to have tomorrow (it will cover the first semester’s material). It feels good (and slightly painful) to get back into the swing of things.
