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

It is common for LDS and Baha’i religion to be treated as New Religious Movements in a final chapter with other global New Religious movements. This introduction to Part Four explains why in this book, these two religions are treated much more seriously, and what we learn about the birth and spread of religion by doing so.
