I think this is from a Calvinist perspective. Calvin and Augustine are quoted many times. There is very little interaction with the scripture in the lectures, but lots of references to history and other's writings and the strengths and weaknesses of their views. I did learn a few things. I don't feel like I even have a better understanding of where Calvinists are sitting, though, even though soteriology debates are some of the most heated discussions I see online. I did gain a different perspective on my church background, which was edifying to hear from a different perspective. If you are interested in history and tradition, and are already a Calvinist, you will likely enjoy this course.
