Teaching the Introductory Course in Religious Studies is a comprehensive, hands-on guide to creating a thoughtful and effective course in world religions and introduction to religion. It contains clear and succinct essays on the different ways the course can be conceived, practical hints for the classroom, sample syllabuses and bibliographies, and advice from experts in each of the world’s religious traditions on what aspects of their tradition should be emphasized and what stereotypes should be avoided. It also contains essays on “how I teach the introductory course” by such leading figures in the field as Huston Smith, Robert Bellah, Jonathan Z. Smith, Ninian Smart, and Wilfred Cantwell Smith.
