Description

This course offers an introduction to the major religions of the world: tribal religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Confucianism, Daoism, Islam, and others. The course begins with consideration of the method and theory of the academic study of religion, and concludes with a Christian consideration of a theology of religions that concentrates on the following questions: What, in God's providence, are the religions? What are they for? How, then, are we to respond to them? Lectures include:
