Professor Doug Dunsmoor will be teaching a course on World Religions on Tuesday evenings, 6:00 - 8:00 pm, from Oct. 8th - Nov. 26th. The central teachings along with some of the history and practices of the major religions will be considered, including Judaism, Secularism, Buddhism, Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, Traditional African Religions, and Christianity. These will be explored in relation to the primary life questions about origins, meaning, existence, morality, salvation, and destiny.
There are many competing ideas in our society, and having a sufficient understanding of each other enables us to more effectively communicate and to get along well with one another. The goals of the course are to understand the essential ideas of the world's religions; to learn the reasoning behind different religions in pursuit of what is true and good; and to be challenged to know and articulate what you believe and why.
Professor Dunsmoor has a master of arts degree in philosophy from The Ohio State University and a master of arts degree in philosophy and religion from Biola University. He also has a bachelor of science degree in mechanical engineering from Grove City College. He has taught a wide range of courses in philosophy and religion for over ten years at schools such as Ohio University, Columbus State Community College, Capital University, and American Public University in addition to being an educational consultant and an equipping pastor. He and his wife, Heather, have three children.
The cost for this course is $40, which includes the textbook and other related materials. It will be held at Faith Community Church on Woerner Temple and Wilcox Rd.
