Here are your first assignments. You do NOT need to memorize the material. Just take in what you can.
Next week we will discuss the material at class.
1) Read chapters 1 & 2 of the "Neighboring Faiths" textbook. Take notes if you like, as
this will help you to remember. Do not worry if you do not understand it all. Remember, this is college material
and we have plenty of time.
2) Read chapters 1-3 of the "Religion for Dummies" book.
3) Read chapters 1-5 of the "Idiot's Guide to World Religion."
4) Make vocabulary flashcards for any words in ITALICS in the above"Idiot's" & "Dummies"
readings for which you think you need additional review.
