Loving All Your Neighbors: Why Community Colleges Need the Academic Study of Religion
Maley, Melissa
New Directions for Community Colleges, n163 p61-68 Fall 2013
This chapter explains how the study of world religions prepares the community college student to become a better citizen, worker, and neighbor. The effective middle between the pitfalls of religious relativism and religious dominance in a world religions classroom is central to this discussion of teaching critical thinking, empathy, and cross-cultural communication.
