Religion: Bringing the World Together or Tearing the World Apart?
Kevin Ford, Prof. Ben DeVan
No enrollment limit, no advance sign up
Participants welcome at individual sessions (series)
Prereq: None

In the turmoil of today's world, religion is often prominent. In the secular west, it is often blamed for the turbulence; while for much of the world it is seen as the solution to problems. Prof. Ben DeVan will examine this question by comparing and contrasting the views of both the secularists and the world's major religions.
