Welcome to this research guide for People and Their Beliefs. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
After the introduction to the concept of religion, People and Their Beliefs surveys ten of the promiment living religions of the world. They are: animism of the Third World, religions of India (Hinduism and Sikhism), of East Asia (Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Shintoism), and of the Middle East (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam). The course treats the origins, development, tenets, and literature of each religion and evaluates each in the light of Christian concepts. The course concludes with an analysis of the departure of heretical sects from orthodox Christian principles. The overall purpose is to stress the abundant life in Christ.
Global University does not necessarily agree with all the views represented in the resources in this guide. These are provided for the student to contrast and compare with the Biblical text and ideas presented in the Global University IST.
