We live in a nation where Asia’s major religions thrive. But do we really know what the followers believe in? If we do not, how can we have meaningful and genuine encounters with them?
This course gives an introduction to Asia’s major religions (Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism) and examines the elements vital to genuine encounters with followers of different belief systems and worldviews. Videos, case studies and group discussions will be used to enhance learning and understanding of Asian Religions.
