N. Smart, The Religious Experience of Mankind (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1984), 3-23. Questions to Consider:

1. What cultural forces are at work in making contemporary Americans so ignorant regarding religion in general and Christianity in particular?

2. Is the distinction that this lecture draws between "religion" and "culture" one that is legitimate for other religious traditions, or even for Christianity itself?
