Chapter 9 argued that there must be at least one required yearlong high school and university course in religious studies. This chapter sketches what such an introductory course might look like. It argues that it isn't enough to require a course in religion. Many other courses should address religion. We need to take some care about how they do this, and how they fit into the curricular conversation that constitutes a liberal education. The chapter focuses it comments on high school history, literature, and economics courses.
