Reading at Night

Your Ad Here

I started reading The Institutes of the Christian Religion last year but got bogged down around Book 1 Chapter 13.  It was a deep read while it lasted.  Now, as we move into slow season at work, I'm doing to try to reread most of the Institutes, journal, and blog along the way.  I have as a guide David Calhoun, whose seminary course is available online for free.  It is a 12 week course, which should allow me to finish before New Years.

The volume of college and graduate level courses available online for free is amazing!  I am also considering a 12 week study on Dante from Yale University (online).  I have a terrific, clear prose translation (the poetry is a bit much for me) but never finished it.  I would be reading his biography and his "Divine Comedy" and listening to online lectures.

If I am able to accomplish both, I'll be very happy at the end of the year and it would be a good use of time as the nights get longer and colder and work slows down.  The key is self discipline and I'll grow in this area as well.

Have you ever pursued/tried an online education course?
