Description 

This course offers a critical introduction to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. After exploring each of these three religions separately, we will consider the comparisons and contrasts among them. It also connects the context of these religious texts with our modern history. Students will study of the historical development of the three major religions and undertake a comparative study of sacred texts (e.g. the Old Testament and Talmud, New Testament and the Qur'an). Students will focus on the similarities and differences. We will also look at the way each religious tradition is practiced in everyday life and explore the influence of these three traditions on the current world events and politics.
