Pretty easy, overall.
I think this subject material is fascinating. Understanding the religious beliefs of others allows us view the world through their paradigm. As society continues to grapple with the conflicts between globalization and nationalism amidst increasing diversity, it is imperative to be able to navigate these complexities.
This course highlights the underlying concepts of both western and eastern religions and encourages one to see the value and beauty in all of them. I felt that the textbook did a good job of this. The teacher tends to be a bit scattered, so it is important to do the reading along with the lectures.

Advice for students:
The teacher raises some interesting points in his lectures; however, he struggles to stay on topic and sometimes fails to really develop the concepts. It is important to do the reading in order to truly benefit from this course. The teacher will also give you all the questions that he will use on the tests and exams at the beginning of the semester. If you fill these out during the lectures and readings and use them to study, you will definitely do well.
