Longest Exam

The longest exam I ever wrote was presented to me by Fuller Theological Seminary, under Professor Bobby Clinton -- exactly 300 pages long -- and it only counted for 10% of my term mark at that. The exam covered the content of every book of the Bible, which has 66 books. I failed 11. I scored 100% for 11 more. The rest I passed. Some surprises: I failed the Psalms, but obtained 100% for the Song of Solomon. An adjunct professor told me that I was the only student ever to have scored highest for the historical books. Most scored highest for the gospels. OBSERVATION: At another seminary, I scored zero for a Bible knowledge exam. In my youthful zeal I spoiled my submission, as I felt that it was an exercise in human pride.
