Columbus' Outlook magazine recognized the religion class as one that made them want to go back to college.

Columbus' Outlook magazine recently looked at local college classes that made them want to go back to college.” The magazine, which focuses on LGBT issues, recognized the Denison religion class, “Bible, Gender and Sexuality” on their list.

Religion and Sexuality is tackled in this Denison University women's and gender studies class. Students examine the Bible's conflicted attitudes and images around men, women and sexuality, 'from the very different creations of Adam and Eve to Revelation's representation of the Roman Empire as the 'whore' of Babylon; from the assertive and sexually suspicious female figures of Ruth and Rahab to Jesus' certain masculinity in accounts of his death.”
