Introduction Level Programme
Thank you very much for uploading the draft module. The academic level is just right for me, and I feel that you have pitched it "spot on". It's clear and simple, yet not simplistic, and very well written. I enjoyed the quotations and questions and thought that they were most illuminating. The layout is good and pleasing to the eye. It allows room to write stuff at the sides. The content is balanced, in my opinion.

Were a range of modules available, I would try and choose topics which covered all the basics of The Christian Mystery, including important historical considerations like doctrinal development. If you were to produce the levels of study outlined, I think that your plan for the Introduction Level is just right, and the six lesson topics are what is required to simply state the truth in love.

I feel that it would be a mistake to make the material unnecessarily complicated, or people might "miss the wood for the trees". I suppose that you could add a further reading section listing books that people might find helpful should they want to enquire in greater depth on particular topics. The way Bishop Kallistos Ware does it towards the back of his book 'The Orthodox Church' is helpful.

Hope this helps.
