Adaptability: The author acknowledges that this course represents his personal understanding of Scriptural teaching on the subject. Therefore, though it tries to be faithful to the Bible, there is room for disagreement by other students of God's Word. These courses were originally designed for presentation at various venues in India, including to students at the Trinity College and Seminary in Sielmat, Manipur, India. However, the source material can be adapted for teaching according to other biblical interpretations and among other cultures and demographics. If you wish to adapt any of these courses to your target audience, please contact the author.
