Day 342: Back in high school

What a luxury...I get to do high school all over again helping my tutee (a word I just made up?) catch up on her work. Today's subjects were math and religion. Was able to find the school book on religion that they are using at the library and spent some time reading this evening. As it so happens, the exam she is having this week is on what they refer to as the "Abrahamistic" religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. There is an entire chapter devoted to each, plus an intro chapter that focuses on the common ground that these religions are built on. The world might be a more peaceful place if more schools took this approach. (The book, btw, covers the Asian religions as well as new age and non-religion.)
