These classes would also be electives; they would not be required curriculum. There are many people who believe that such a class is a good idea, provided that it’s in a non-religious format; a study of the history of the books of the Bible and correlating those to events discussed in other historical texts, perhaps studying different translations and discussing those differences, and other avenues of study that don’t include preaching.

This would be great, if this was a sincere move. The SBL, I believe has something along these lines as an advocacy program.

Wonder if West Virginia would do something like this?
