World Religions Lecture Series

Religions are not objects of curiosity to be perused like artifacts in a museum. Rather, they are lived experiences that provide profound meaning for those within them. Our religious traditions have endured for so many years because they have profoundly touched so many lives. Our study together is ultimately about these people - roughly two thirds of the world population whose lives are inextricably tied to their religious traditions and history. This lecture series not only gives you the facts about religions, but also teaches you to appreciate the internal logic behind their world views and engage some of the common myths and misconceptions for each religion.
