Understanding Eastern Religions and the New Age Movement

Understanding Eastern Religions and the New Age Movement was taught in the Summer of 2012. We learned the basics about the each religions’ history, organization, claims, doctrines, and practices. Our goal was to compare the Christian world view to that of other religions and to analyze which is the “best” world view, or the one that explains reality the best. We also will talk about ways to talk with others about our faith and learn more about theirs.
