The Great Courses “Confucius, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad” – Sunday morning discussion

Our Board of Lifelong Learning Sunday Morning Discussion at 8:30 am presents The Great Courses “Confucius, Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad” taught by Professor Mark W. Muesse. In this course, we examine these four figures both separately and comparatively in an effort to grasp the essential features of their lives and teachings and to explore the factors that contributed to their greatness.  This course includes 36 lectures, but feel free to stop in to view the ones that interest you the most.  Come join the Sunday morning community of lifelong learners!
