It's not uncommon to hear people suggest that all religions are basically the same - different paths that lead to one destination. Without question, there are similar themes and ideas that are found in all of the major religions that this planet has seen, but are they all the same?

In this course, we're going to take a comparative look at various religions, doing our best to objectively determine their differences, effectiveness, and subsequent value. If you've ever wondered about what religions other-than-yours are teaching, this will be a great class for you.
