Correspondence Course Number Eight. This Course is set out somewhat
some of our other Courses, in that Deuteronomy is a Book of thirty-four
chapters. It would be an impossible task to set Chapter Assignments,
so what we will do with this Course is to divide the Course up
into nine Sections (i) the Introduction which is given in printed
Notes, and (ii) eight further Sections, namely chapters 1-8; 9-16;
17-24; 25-34 of the Book of Deuteronomy.
course, the Book itself does not necessarily fall into these
but the Student will have to do comprehensive Assignments for each
Section. To aid him will be twenty-one audio-cassettes ( or mp3
on CD) which virtually have forty-two Studies, only two of these
being of the Introduction. The Student will find that listening
to the cassettes will be very helpful, but this should also be
augmented by reading a commentary, no matter how simple it may
are required to do an Essay for each Assignment of a minimum 2,000
words: set out neatly, a margin left in the left hand column, writing
or typing only on one side, all pages numbered, and the front page
containing only the name and address of the Student, together with
the title of the assignment and the name of the Tutor. It is suggested
that, since only five Assignments are required, they should
be quite extensive, and indicate ample listening and extra reading.
Hints for Reading and Study
You will be mainly listening
to the Tapes sent to you, and you may wish to read a Commentary
or two of those listed below in the Bibliography. When listening
to tapes, have the Book of Deuteronomy open before you, and try
to follow the Commentary on the Tapes. The best way of studying
is to (i) read the passage yourself, at one sitting if possible;
(ii) ponder what the passage is saying; (iii) listen to the Tape
as you check it with the text; and (iv) where possible, make your
own notes, keeping them in a file for later reference.
How to Go About the Course
As indicated above there is
first the Introduction to be read and an Assignment completed and
sent. Then there are four Sections of the Book of Deuteronomy to
be covered. Whereas we normally send a Lesson, mark your assignment,
and return it to you with the next Lesson, in this case we will
set out the five Assignments required for the Book. You may send
each Assignment on its completion and proceed with the next until
all are completed.
- Neat, clear presentation is necessary to
facilitate your tutor's
- Write legibly at all times.
- Write on one side only of your paper.
- Leave a 3 cm margin on the left side of your paper.
- When using a typewriter, leave a one line space between lines.
- Be careful to read and answer the questions.
- Be sure that your answers are based soundly on Scripture.
- Refrain from an over-use of Bible quotations as a substitute
for expressing your own grasp of the subject.
- Try to avoid 'parrot-fashion' repeating
of words and ideas in the study materials.
- Put your student number, your name and
address, and your tutor's
name on the back of the last sheet.
Further to this way of study,
you can read extra material recommended in the Bibliography below.
In it we have recommended certain bible helps. You do not have
to buy these, but they certainly would be helpful. You will receive
a certificate of Studies on completing this subject.
Links With Your Tutor
You will be assigned your own
tutor who will see you through this subject. You should feel free
to ask for help where needed. Your tutor will return your assignments
with comments which will be helpful. Marks will be given, and you
will receive a Certificate of Studies on completing this subject.
Going the Course Alone
Some students will wish to do
this study entirely on their own. This means they will wish to
receive the thirteen lessons and do the study without the aid of
a tutor. No Certificate of Studies can be given in this case.
Certificate of Studies
It is recommended that you persist
continually in study so that you finish the course as soon as possible,
without, however, putting yourself under stress. A good aim is
to complete the questions within one month, or two months at the
most. In the event of your study being interrupted or delayed through
circumstances, do not give up your course. There is no time
limit set for completion of the Certificate of Studies, however,
to gain maximum benefit from your studies, you should aim to complete
this subject within two years. If for any reason you have to relinquish
your studies, please let your tutor know.
A Certificate of Theology will
be granted to a student who completes eight subjects.
