How should a student approach the study of religion?
Dr. Judith Plaskow discusses how difficult it is to teach religion to students who come to class with preexisting and often negative opinions on the subject. Her advice to students is that they should think of a religion course as an opportunity to learn and gain respect for other systems that try to identify meanings in life. She also points out the importance of exploring the concept of religion within human history, and its current vital role in our globalized society.
