We have been reading the Christiano textbook, but no book or set of readings can possibly cover all areas of interest. Module 6 on Canvas includes some supplementary readings on several areas of current interest in the sociology of religion. Please select TWO subtopics from the Module 6 focus areas that most interest you and read those, along with the required readings given within those subtopics. Citing specific material from the subtopics and associated readings, as well as any other credible and authoritative resources you might find, please concisely but insightfully address each of the following issues in at least 3 full pages of text:
- What subtopic did you find the most interesting in terms of the ideas it covers, and why?
- How does that subtopic conceptually relate to the second subtopic you read?
- How do both subtopics relate to issues and concepts currently relevant to the sociology of religion? What similarities do they share? What differences?
- Why are each of the subtopics you chose significant to the past, present, or future of religion in America and/or the world today?
