What role does religion play in society? What are the similarities and
differences in the major religious traditions in our society?  How can
we explain variation in belief and participation?  Are we becoming
more or less religious?  This course will try to answer these
questions and more.  While we won’t be looking at specific doctrines
or histories, we will be looking at the general practices and beliefs
of Mainline Protestants, Evangelical and Black Protestants, Roman
Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam, especially their significance to
contemporary social issues.
