This page is your central point for resources supplementing the printed text Understanding World Religions.
We expect to provide a variety of resources, beginning with proposals for student research projects based on the book, with detailed instructions
for students and faculty, and extensive resource lists
for the projects. These instructions and resource lists are available
now--the resource lists will continue to be updated over time. A brief summary
of the project as used at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, U.S.A. is available.
projected to be available starting in January, 2008, are study guides
for the contents of the chapters, sample test questions, additional
spokespersons for justice and peace from each of the worldviews,
additional groups working for justice and peace from within each of the
worldviews,an extended article proposing a nonviolent liberationist
Christian worldview titled "Sample Christian Thought,"
and corrections and updates to the chapters.
