If you like history, then From Whence We Came is a course you will find most interesting.  You won't have to memorize dates or place names. The history is one of ideas which converged in American culture to become what we now know as Religious Science and the larger New Thought movement.  These ideas originally arose before recorded history, but were rediscovered in the 19th century by some notable people whose works are read and discussed in this course.  These great luminaries of New Thought were the first to frame them in words and make them accessible to the general public.
