A PHD in Odessa: Professor Silences Critics on Bible Courses

Friday Night Lights brings Odessa to mind, but you’ll have to conjure up images of an OSU Professor teaching Bible to the crowd to keep up with the latest news.  In fact, after Dr. Duke Pesta’s persuasive case for teaching Bible curriculum last Wednesday, any advocacy for these Bible courses could be preaching to the choir.  Just CHECK OUT KWES’s take on the University Professor’s presentation and you’ll know Free Market’s most recent attempt to allow teaching the history and literature of the world’s #1 bestseller of all time was a huge success.  Professors from Yale, Harvard and Stanford agree with Pesta—barring students from studying the Bible academically only increases the next generation’s cultural ignorance (if you haven’t noticed, it’s not up to par).  Pretty soon Odessa will be known for its brawn and brains—football and academic excellence in West Texas.
