Religion and Politics Class

Hey everybody I am excited about the possibilities of this. Our class will be the guinea pig to see if this is helpful.
If you have never participated in a wiki before be sure and start at Basic Instructions.

Here I have listed the literature in our syllabus. I have created basic links to pages with no info. Please start filling them in. If after you read the instructions you are not comfortable editing the pages. Feel free to discuss changes in the "comments" at the bottom of the pages and then more tech savy folk can pick those up and edit them in.

Please contact me directly with any big issues or changes. I will try to keep up!
