World Religions | Five Faiths We Need to Know Better
Dr. Robert N. Nash, Jr.
Associate Dean for the Doctor of Ministry Program and
Arnall-Mann-Thomasson Professor of Missions and World Religions
at McAfee - School of Theology at Mercer University
Starting August 20, Dr. Nash will join us for six sessions on “Five Faiths We Need to Know Better,” walking us through different religions and their place in the human spirit.
We all seek reason and purpose for our lives. Religion offers this meaning by answering the foundational questions of human existence. Why am I here? Why do I suffer? Why should I behave? Our “religion” is nothing more or less than our best effort to answer these questions which give ultimate meaning to our lives.
For the next weeks, the topics are —
August 27 — Hinduism
September 3 — Buddhism
September 10 — The Chinese Context: Confucianism, Taoism and others
September 17 — Judaism
September 24 — Islam
PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
