History of Religion
Does one of the Abrahamic faiths (Judaism, Christianity,
Islam) have a greater claim to dogmas of peace than another.
Which has more peaceful rhetoric in scripture? E.g., does the
Bible have more peaceful or more violent verbiage than the
Quran? Which one of them, if any, can make a claim to
peacefulness historically? E.g. which faith has caused more
damage, more violence over time? How did or do they justify
Which faith, other than your own, do you find most
interesting or most compelling. Compare this religion to your own
beliefs (point by point as much as possible). Give examples from
the assigned sources. Why is one set of ideas more convincing
than the other? Do not just talk about your own faith or non-
belief, this is a comparative exercise.
