In previous centuries, each region of the world was dominated by one religious tradition. Today, every religion competes with all others in a global community connected by air travel, satellite television, and the world wide web. The religious seeker has become a consumer in a cafeteria of worldviews. Simultaneously, secularism challenges all religious viewpoints and constitutes a second source of competition. This course will examine the plight of any religious truth-claim in this new and challenging environment.
