Understanding World Wide Religions
with Jim Barrett
Religion impacts all of us every day: foreign policy, government decisions, social interactions, and the wars we fight. What is religion, why do people believe, where did it come from, and why don’t most people talk openly about it? What are the similarities, the differences, and the benefits to followers of the major religions? What trends can we identify? These and other questions will be discussed as well as your own experiences with religion, in this “no-judgment” course.
