Will definitely participate again in this series. Dr. Bell is a good presenter, excellent images illustrating the topic discussed. A very pleasant hour of learning and discussion with curious minds.
A particularly interesting topic for us that can trace our religious background to the Methodists. I had very little idea about the history of John Wesley. As my maternal ancestors were from Kentucky - I see why they were Methodists.
Fascinating presentation. My husband and I both felt this was the most interesting presentation we have seen from Context Travel. Dr Bell was engaging and informative. We both appreciated his teaching approach which was interactive. This was an exceptional class.
We plan to enjoy other seminars from Dr Bell.
Another excellent American History Monday session, this time on the first Great Awakening by Dr. Bell. In this session Dr. Bell discusses religious movements in the 1700s (specifically Baptist and Methodist) that competed with the established religious traditions in the colonies. The breadth of his knowledge amazes me; no matter what questions are asked, he is able to provide extensive answers; he also suggests resources for those who are interested in exploring topics in greater depth. I'm looking forward to his session on the second Great Awakening!
This was a fascinating look at the beginnings of religious institutions that became fundamental to US culture and politics, and remain so to this day, Dr. Bell was on point as always not just with his expertise but with his sense of humor, charm, and engagement with the seminar participants.
