Living Faiths

AQF: 6/7/8/9, on-campus

Thursday Daytime Unit

EM021-612/712/812 + EM205-912 (Capstone) + EM206-912 (Specialised Studies)

Over 4 billion people in the world follow traditional religions, Hinduism, Buddhism, or Islam. Perhaps God has given you an interest in helping people in these religions find Jesus?

This unit will help you do that. In it, we explore the basic beliefs, practices, and some deeply held assumptions of Animists, Hindus, Buddhists, and Muslims. You will discover not only the formal elements of these faiths, but also something of the everyday needs, and fears of their practitioners. You will hear from adherents of these faiths how they practice their faith and why it is important to them, and you will discuss both their faith and your faith in Jesus with a practitioner of one of these religions.
