Religion is a key feature of the identities of individuals and communities, and has tremendous power and impact on our personal lives as well as our local, national, and global communities. With religions’ divergent worldviews, moral codes, and conceptions of life’s meaning and purpose, as well as the crucial role it plays in history, politics, law, the arts, and so much more, being able to understand religion and developing inter-religious literacy is an essential requirement for living productive and ethical lives as global citizens in our world today.
