March 23 to April 13 – World Religions with RENEW.org

Is Islam a religion of peace or war? Why is Buddhism so popular in American culture? What makes Hinduism different from Buddhism? Can I do evangelism without ruining my friendship with someone of another religion?

If you’ve wanted to learn the basics of the major religions, we invite you to a 4-week course with 3 teachers on the topic. Join Daniel McCoy, general editor of the Popular Handbook of World Religions, Winfried Corduan, author of Neighboring Faiths: A Christian Introduction to World Religions, and Lindsey Medenwaldt, Executive Director of Mama Bear Apologetics for a helpful look into the major religions.

Come with questions! We want this course to be as helpful as possible, and we welcome your questions and invite your engagement during the course.
