Teaching about the Bible to Christians is perhaps equal to telling engineering students about those tools that they would use in the lab for their experiments. It is useful, but it will be damn boring. In the end, the students need to get their hands dirty on those equipments and carry on with their experiments. Similarly, it would be much better if we teach from the Bible rather than simply about the Bible, so that we could employ it for our whatever purposes.
Nevertheless, I do have a bizarre penchant in learning about the boring stuffs, though.
