Here's what we cover at the moment:

Issues of religious pluralism, theology of religions etc. are covered in a separate module.
So, without expanding the number of sessions what would you include, what would you ditch, what would your priorities be? Which authors have you found helpful? Which movements/trends do you think are the most significant? Which issues are key? Remember this is an introductory module so the aim is to offer a fairly wide angle survey of the scene while introducing key missiological themes and skills.
All suggestions gratefully received.
