Comparative Religion Essay

In class, we have been discussing the idea that “religion is really about transformation.” Now, compare how transformation works in Islam and Yoruba religion, as Prothero narrates them. In crafting your essay, consider Prothero’s argument about the main problem for each religion, what solutions they offer, and what techniques they suggest. How does ‘transformation’ fit into these traditions—what form or forms does it take? Where and how does it come up, if at all? You may draw on additional class readings in making your case (but are not required to do so). Be precise, draw from concrete examples in Prothero’s book, and be sure to underline your thesis sentence. 500-750 words (2-3 pages).
