      Religious Traditions With & Without God

      The course will address the question of what is the ultimate or divine in various traditions, and how does that affect the lives and spirituality of adherents to the tradition. The traditions to be studied include the Hindu, Buddhist, Confucian, Taoist, Earth and its deities, Judaic, Christian, Religious Humanist, Muslim, and Sufi.
      The course schedule will be Week 1: Basic Concepts, Primal Patterns, Earth and its Deities; Week 2: The Hindu tradition with many gods in harmony; Week 3: The Buddhist ways without a “god” figure; Week 4: The Confucian and Taoist traditions, ultimate value/reality with folk gods only in the background; Week 5: Islam and Sufism, Religious Humanism; and Week 6: The God of Israel to the Christian Triune God to religious divisions.
