Cultural Literacy for Religion
Everything the Well-educated Person Should KnowDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
Religious belief has been innate to humans everywhere and in every age, from the time of the Neanderthals to the 21st century. It's also one of the strongest motivators of human behavior and has a profound impact on all aspects of our culture--our spiritual beliefs, our rituals, our politics, and the very foundations of our democracy. Unfortunately, the majority of Americans fail basic tests about religion, including their own faith, according to polls conducted by Gallup and the Pew Research Forum. This is troublesome, because religious literacy is about so much more than naming deities or knowing the stories of ancient history. A basic understanding of religion is crucial for today's educated citizen.
