Ed2: Other Faiths



This is a web page developed as an adjunct to a class taught at Luther Seminary in Saint Paul, MN. Please be advised: these sites are contextualized in my presentations, and are not meant to be either definitive or endorsed without critical reflection.

Here is the 2012 version of the syllabus for the class.

Required books

James Heft, ed., Passing on the Faith

Paul Knitter, Introducing Theologies of Religious Pluralism

Recommended books

Lucinda Mosher, Praying

Lucinda Mosher, Belonging

Kevin O’Donnell, Inside World Religions

Arvind Sharma, The World’s Religions

Please note that this class will meet from 1:30 to 4:20 pm on Thursdays, Sept. 8, 15, 22, 29, Oct. 6th, and then from 8:30 am to noon on Saturday, October 8th. We will be doing a field trip to a local community of faith that day. If you want to take this class, but cannot meet that field trip requirement, please be in touch with me and we can likely work out an alternative.
