From Taoism, to Islam, to Christianity, religion inevitably affects
us all in some way. On one level, religion can help us commune
with and honor our spiritual natures, but it can also divide people
and create great strife in the world. World Religions: Exploring
Diversity will explore the various characteristics of faith and
introduce the fundamentals of the major religions, including
Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism,
Shintoism, and Taoism. You’ll trace how these powerful faiths
have influenced cultures over thousands of years and helped to
shape the face of humanity. After this course, you’ll have a clearer
understanding of how religion continues to affect the larger world.
