Hamilton Study - Begins Sunday, January 27 or Wednesday, January 30

It is a new year and that means it’s time for another one of our short-term studies.  Our next study will be “Christianity and World Religions” by Adam Hamilton.  It is a six-week course.  The Sunday class will start January 27 at 9:15 a.m.  The Wednesday class will start January 30 at 1:00 p.m.  Books are being ordered today, (Monday, Jan. 14) but you can go on to Amazon.com and order a book to join in the study.

The class will cover four major world religions—Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism.  We will compare the beliefs of each of these to Christianity.  We’ll explore questions such as:  Why are there so many different religions?  How should we view their beliefs?  What is the fate of those who have these beliefs?
