Religion & Social Transformation

Religions have an enormous potential for the transformation of the individual and of society. Religions are not concerned primarily with the afterlife but with a more meaningful and satisfying life in this world. In this course, we will explore a dimension of world religions that is not often highlighted, namely, how religions contribute to the improvement of the lives of people living in the world. Each one of us can benefit from what a religion other than our own has to offer in the way of improving the quality of human life.
