Religious Literacy - Stephen Prothero begins this valuable primer by noting that religious illiteracy is rampant in the US, where most Americans cannot name even one of the four Gospels. Such ignorance is perilous because religion "is the most volatile constituent of culture" and, unfortunately, often "one of the greatest forces for evil" in the world, he writes. Prothero does more than diagnose the problem; he traces its surprising historic roots and prescribes concrete solutions that address religious education, while preserving First Amendment boundaries. This book is a must-read for all adults in a culture where "faith without understanding is the standard" and "religious ignorance is bliss."
