What people are saying about James:

Dr. Chuck has taught in seminary but can speak helpfully to lay persons… he has a relaxed style of presentation, a sense of humor, and great rapport with the audience.

Dr. Chuck is a rare teacher who possesses the combination of knowledge, experience, and wisdom.  In three sessions, he told the story, both historically and theologically, of how Christianity developed into what it is today.  I recommend Dr. Chuck’s series highly to all who are seeking to improve their knowledge of the fundamentals.

Dr. Chuck did a great job with the Overview presentations.  He promotes a non-threatening informal environment which is conducive to learning and fellowship.  He knows his subject matter and can condense complex theological concepts to that they can be understood, and he is able to tailor the presentations to fit his audience.

The sessions outlined in broad strokes the major events documented in the Bible, and raises thought provoking questions that an individual needs to wrestle with in his or her spiritual journey.

Our church people enjoyed the presentations, the informal fellowship, and the singing.
