The Master of Comparative Religion course shares insightful information about different religions around the world with an emphasis on interfaith studies. There are discourses about different stories between the religions, an overview of the different similarities and differences and so much more.

Why comparative religion? A firm grounding in comparative religion allows an individual to perceive the truth that is within all traditions. As ministers, we need to respond to those we are called to serve. Individuals come to us from many walks of life, many cultures and religious backgrounds. It is important that we have a framework and information to draw upon so that we can be of the most help.

We need to communicate with those who come to us for guidance within a context they can understand. We, as human beings, have a tendency to address everything from our own perspective and assume that those we talk to understand our words as we mean them. We all have had experiences where this has backfired. . It is imperative that as ministers, we make every effort to communicate from the perspective of those we serve. This requires us to stretch and become more holistic in our approach and dissemination of The Word. For example, we may personally feel more comfortable and natural speaking in terms of angels; it is not so difficult to learn to use the word dakini.

This course will provide the minister with am excellent background and understanding of the major world religions, as well as some lesser known traditions. It will provide the student with a solid foundation on which to communicate with and serve the diverse spiritual needs of the world around us.

5 of 5 Master of Comparative Religion Course May 6, 2017
Reviewer: Rebecca E Augustine from Fargo, ND United States  
The college-level course brings the student through an introduction to all major religions, laying out doctrines, dogmas, practices, and histories clearly, and in a way that allows the student to compare and contrast them.

Very well-done and comprehensive course, and an essential guide to understanding religions and the people who practice them.

Highly recommended.

5 of 5 Course and interaction - two thumbs up! May 5, 2017
Reviewer: Manuel Colunga-Hernandez from Deer River, MN United States  
Found Kythera Ann's course on Comparative Religion excellent.  For me it provided an excellent syntopic study of religions - and the contrast was done in a way that provided a thread of thought throughout for the observant student to follow.   I have to say it comes highly recommended by me to anyone wishing to take on a well-outlined well written course of this kind.  You will be tried to find some resources and there are good exercises - and some rather deep questions to ponder.  I recommend this course to all ordained yet or not, graduates, freshmen out of school; start here.

5 of 5 Comparative Religion is a very interesting course. June 1, 2016
Reviewer: Paula King from Cape Coral, FL United States  
I feel it is very important to study the different religions and their beliefs to be knowledgeable about them when dealing with clients for different reasons, such as weddings, or funerals, etc. My dream is to teach some day, and the Comparative Religion lessons were so well written and the stories and pictures depicted the ideas that the author was trying to put across in an excellent fashion and done so well, and I want to be able to do that.
