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.

Also 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.

For more information on the justice and peace studies program at the University of St. Thomas, go to its program web pages. The following link will also give information on the course Theologies of Justice and Peace.
