Not too easy. Not too difficult.
This course teaches basic, yet detailed information on western religions. It answers many questions about how the major religions began and how they evolved over generations. You will learn about key detailed facts in the three major religions; Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. If you have any questions about religion, then this is the course for you.
I learned that there are peaceful followers and radical followers in each religion. Just like with race, you shouldn't judge a person because of how and who they believe in as their deity. It is important to discern between what a person's deity requires and how culture can influence a person's acts or lifestyle. If you chose to dress or behave in a certain way because of a religion, be sure to examine closely if that is part of your personal relationship with your deity or because that is a culturally based act.

Advice for students:
Be sure to approach this course with an open mind. Be receptive to new ideas and open to other people's belief systems. Allow yourself to have time to reflect on what you are reading. I would recommend taking organized notes so that you don't get any of the religions mixed together. Setting aside an ample amount of time for reading, because there is a lot of it.
