This course is designed to explore the dialogue between Christianity and other world religions. Given the urgency and universality of threats to environmental well-being, this course will explore dialogue through the relation of religion and ecology. Emphasis will be placed on how the adherents of religious traditions understand themselves and address issues related to ecology and environmental responsibility in our contemporary world.
