The essays in this section describe some of the most important topics in the
field of religion. What is often seen as conflict between liberal and

Our web site is mainly directed to North Americans. Because about 75% of
Canadians and Americans regard themselves as Jews or Christians, the initial essays in this section will concentrate
mainly on sin as it is described in the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures.
