INTDS 242 Overview
What are the two topics you should not discuss at the dinner table? Answer: Religion and Politics. Why do certain groups of Christians deny climate change and other Christians promote ‘green’ legislation? Was the U.S. founded as a Christian nation or were our Founding Fathers not traditional, religious men? What does religion look like in a pluralistic society? These questions are only a few of those that a careful historical and doctrinal exploration of religion in America can unlock. This course will be a historical overview of the uniquely American experience of religion. Understanding many of the issues in current society require unlocking this history.
