DESCRIPTION:

Our religious heritage tells the story of America. In our class we will discuss interesting and surprising religious leaders and events from the Civil War to the present. You will discover how the Catholic Church became the largest denomination and learn about the creation of an American Judaism, the Social Gospel, Prohibition, tele-evangelists, the arrival of Moslems, mega-churches, and the growth of Eastern religions. Finally, we’ll reflect on what these changes tell us about ourselves and give us hints about our future.
