5 of 5 Course and interaction - two thumbs up! December 8, 2021
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 Master of Comparative Religion Course December 8, 2021
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 Comparative Religion is a very interesting course. December 8, 2021
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.
