Great Intro to the Subject
Lots of Writing
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I never appreciated that vast differences in religions until this course. I grew a passion for understanding religions around the world. With all the chaos created by a group related to Islam, it was really humbling to see that the religion is not like that at all. You can really grow an appreciation for what other people believe in and their lifestyles.
I learned a lot about Islam, Christianity, and Hinduism. Hinduism and Buddhism very similar and they reach their goal in their faith by patience, meditation, and selfless acts. To be able to calm the mind to reach Enlightenment sounds very tempting when someone is surrounded by chaos on a daily basis.

Advice for students:
Develop an interest in a few religions and dedicate your research on the two or three religions because there is an 8 page paper due by the end of the class on two big aspects being compared and contrasted.
