Zeba A. Crook [+-]
Carleton University
Zeba A. Crook is Professor of Religious Studies at Carleton University, in Ottawa, Canada. He is a specialist in early Christianity and Graeco-Roman culture, but was drawn to the study of religion more broadly, and the study of these three religions in particular by teaching it. That his course on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam at Carleton University has attracted an average of six hundred students per year since he arrived there in 2003 shows the enduring interest in this material among young adults.

Description

Orthodoxy refers to “correct belief,” and it is a common claim of religious communities to represent the one true way of believing. This introduction to Part Two considers the challenges of generalizing about beliefs across three religions with such diversity, and at the way in which even the theological notion of monotheism is contested between and within each religion.
