Free Yale Bible Course

The information in this course is mainstream, much like the information in The Blackwell Companion to the Hebrew Bible.  Not much of it really surprised me:  the Torah has multiple authors, Israel's history before the monarchic period is basically not known or non-existent, biblical theology is not monolithic, etc.

Mp3s of each lecture are available.  The professor is a secular (I think) Talmud scholar, so she's got some intellectual chops.

EDIT:  There are many more classes to choose from, including Principles of Evolution, Ecology and Behavior, Introduction to New Testament History and Literature, and Capitalism: Success, Crisis, and Reform.  I'd like to listen to each of these.
