Who wouldn’t want to know more about the many religions out there today? There are so many people with so many ideas that it’s difficult to keep them straight! One religion says this; another says that – sometimes it is just opposite of what I grew up with!
Good news for you who want to explore the many new religions and compare them with Christianity. Good news for you who want to learn to distinguish between Christianity and other world religions. This fall our free course will explore many of the new religious movements as well as the older world religions.
