Religion in America
with Jim Barrett
It is often stated that America is the most religious of all the developed countries. What makes religion in our country so different from everywhere else, and how did we get this way? This continuation of the “Understanding Religion” course will look into the answer to these questions. We will also take a look at the major religions practiced in our country and what differences there are between them. We are a very diverse and interesting religious country with a unique history.
