Grasping the fundamentals of world religions is, arguably, paramount for citizens of the 21st century. Yet how can students be equipped for such a task? The challenge also is particularly pressing for Catholic educators, whose faith tradition, especially since Vatican II, has sought to formulate a theology of World Religions.
