Have you been to one of Tony's Bible studies? I enjoyed them immensely and always feel like I’ve learned something. I would go to church more often if there were a class like his here.

Thanks for posting that link. I always enjoyed his class at UC. The questions he asked didn't always make sense, but at least he encouraged real learning. He was one of the best teachers I had there, almost made it more of a real college and less of an academy part II.

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take a class from Tony. I've always heard good things about his classes though.

I went to a couple of Tony's SS classes with Bryant, but never got to take a class from him, either. I appreciate intellectual honesty; I don't think we're much good as humans or Christians if we can't think critically about why we believe what we do.

I never had a class from Minear, and actually, I avoided him. He was the Union Scholars Director when he first came back from Toronto and really, really annoyed me in that capacity. And by the time I was ready to accept that being uphelpful, disorganized, unknowledgeable about procedures, and generally annoying was just part of the Union Scholar's job description (Marilyn McArthur excepted), I'd heard too much about his coaching from fellow ASB officers to think my interactions with him were exceptional. It's interesting seeing so many people have such a completely different take on the fellow.

Well, I've only known him as Ellen B's cousin and as a sabbath school teacher so my perception might be different.
