Simpson University for Seniors Accepting Students for January Classes

For Immediate Release


Simpson University for Seniors

REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University for Seniors is offering two courses in January for adults of any age.

The non-credit, no-homework classes, which begin Jan. 6, are taught on Simpson’s campus by university professors and professionals in their field of expertise. Classes meet from 10:20 to 11:20 a.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The following courses are being offered:

The Beauty and the Beast: A Study of the Book of Revelation. This course will focus on helping the contemporary reader of the book of Revelation to understand the bewildering array of images, numbers and events of John's prophetic visions so as to understand the book’s relevance for the past, present and future. Presenter: Dr. Jack Painter

The American Indians You Never Knew, and Their Contributions to History. This course will deepen understanding of the rise and fall of civilizations in the southern region of the western hemisphere. Some of those cultures had stone cities that predated the birth of Christ by 2,000 years and have yet to be discovered. The major focus of this course will be on one of the most powerful and spectacular Indian empires to dominate the Americas: the Inca civilization of South America. Presenter: Dr. David Dummer

Two courses are offered each month through April. The cost is $95 per person, per course, or $145 for couples registering for the same course. Register online with a credit card at
