New Religion Blog

Here is a link to a World Religions blog that I started over the holiday break. I teach one section of World Religions and thought that it might be helpful to have a central place for all the links and clips that we come across, like the graphic above which, according to The Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life  shows the rising numbers of people who do not belong to any faith.

There is a lot of information out there for those of  us who teach religion.  Every major newspaper, for example, has a religious section--CNN's Belief Blog, The Washington Post's On Faith, to name just a couple. Some of the stuff that I post might be also be useful for World and U. S History and even government. There are stories about Confucianism and Taoism making a comeback in China. And stories about the middle east and religion are often front page news.  Check it out when you get a chance.
