Religious Literacy

Religious illiteracy is one of America's most pressing civic problems, according to Stephen Prothero, author of Religious Literacy: What Every American Needs to Know -- and Doesn't.

He'll speak about that at 7 p.m. 14 November as part of the Distinguished Speakers Series/Indiana Historical Society History Makers. Tickets are $25; call 317:232-1882.

His presentation is part of the "Spirit & Place" Festival and takes place in the Basile Theater at the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis.

A discussion of Prothero's book is set for 6:30 p.m. 10 November in Christian Theological Seminary, 1000 West 42d Street, Indianapolis. Led by Scott Seay, assistant professor of the history of global Christianity, it's free. To sign up, call 317:924-1331.
