Obviously passionate about what he does and conveys interest well. Time and content are often difficult to follow; hardly uses visual aids in lectures and students have to frantically record his verbal explanation of the textbook. Has an AMAZING *FREE* online textbook that gives more information and explains concepts with great practice quizzes.

Good prof who tries to make his class as interesting as possible while understanding that it is a core requirement. The discussion groups are the most interesting part and an easy grade booster if you go. The tests are multiple choice and fairly basic.

He is amazing. The midterms and final were all multiple choice (easy MC if you went to lecture and did the reading. No trick questions.) Absolutely hilarious. I went in thinking I would be bored and already know most of the material, but he made it so new and interesting. He used his own, online textbook so students didn't have to buy one.

Great proffesor. He's very understanding and helpful. Heunderstands that this might be a mandatory course so he teaches it accordingly. LOVED his class. The material was truly intriguing. He is funny, amiable, and keeps the class alive. Goes with the flow (possibly his greatest attribute). I recommend this teacher!!

He is a knowledgeable professor. He creates a good atmosphere for student participation. Very warm-hearted; and interesting in his course presentation. He is the face of the New Testament in the MABIB program.

He is a great professor. He presents his classes in a detailed and yet very interesting manner. He makes the "Gospels" come alive. Simply one of the best in the NT department.

RELS 340 is a super interesting class. Deconstructs everything you've learned at church. Hatina is intriguing, patient, funny, friendly, and approachable. He treats you like an adult. Just as long as your papers show that you've put in the effort, he'll give you an A =)

Great prof, funny and engaging. Very interesting and very scholarly. Gives a great deal of historic and factual background to make the text more full and alive. Great sense of humour and a tad irreverent, may offend some students depending on their sensibilities. Great prof and a great class.

Dr. Hatina is a great professor. His expectations are high and his deadlines tough, but he is also very compassionate and will offer his help when needed. Don't be afraid to have opinions in his classes, but be prepared to defend them. Great lecturer. Inspires students to think differently (which is good).

Quite the funny guy. Vertically challenged - this affects his approach to his students. "How 'yah dON" scares me. Very bright, but knows it. curious blend of self-deprecating humor, and arrogance. Read his book - $206!!
