Sadly, courses CH151 and CH152 relating to historical Theology are woefully lacking! Course quality and content is subpar. The professor is very subjective and does not advance sound theological assessments of the history of theological development. As a professor of the history of mission who frequently lectures on missiological and historical issues related to theology I believe the course completely misses the bar. Additionally, Logos could have at the very least edited his dictated speech for readability. Most of the time in my online courses I lecture and then provide additional content for the student to read. Also, when purchasing a course why do the resources relating to that course remain locked? I’m sorry I purchased these two courses and will no longer purchase or recommend students to purchase Logos Mobile Ed Courses.

Welcome to the forums, Dr. Allard.

The readings are suggested/recommended, but it is left to the user to decide if they want to also purchase (some of) those resources.

I believe FL is starting to offer discounted course bundles that include some of the additional content.

FL offers a 30-day refund to anyone not satisfied with a purchase. You can contact Customer Service for assistance with a refund.

I have not seen these particular courses, but I have found the courses to be very uneven - some well worth the money, others closer to a waste of time. Unfortunately, it appears to me that Faithlife needs to do a much better job of identifying the market to whom the author is speaking. Then, as buyers, we can make more informed decisions.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
