This course is unabashedly taught from a Christian perspective, with the goal of helping the learner become more comfortable with people of other religions so that they can increase their effectiveness in sharing their faith with those from other countries who have moved into their neighborhood. To that end, not only are facts presented regarding the religions under study, supplemental activities are included in order for the student to come to understand the adherents of each faith on a more personal level – in order to facilitate friendships with people that practice other religions so that as 1 Peter 3:15 tells us, “But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect,” you are able to share the truth of the Gospel to a world that desperately needs to hear it. No book is required, rather we will have video lectures and supplemental activities that are all available to you through the course during our two weeks together. We will be examining Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. This is a survey course – we won’t be going into tremendous depth due to time constraints and the goals of this course – you will be learning the basics of each religion under study but you will also be spending time viewing material that helps you understand on a more personal level the people who practice these religions so that you can be more comfortable interacting with them. God bless you as ambassadors of Christ to the nations – in your own backyard! This is an online course, meaning you can participate at the time of day that works best for your schedule. Course materials will become available at Noon Central on the start day, and you should plan to spend an hour or two (whenever you choose) every day interacting with the course.  1.0 CEUs are available upon successful completion of this course. Price: $55.00
