A Case for Studying Religion July 25, 2014
This week, we bring together two of America's most thoughtful religion professors for a lively conversation on the state of religious education today. And it's not looking good--especially at the college level. Unlike in other areas of study, where students come to class with a basic knowledge, religion professors must assume their students know nothing--leaving teachers playing catch up and taking much longer to get to deeper, more complex issues.
