For this Final Response, explain why you have chosen your particular definition. You must reference at least THREE of the traditions we have studied together during the term for your response to be adequate. THE RELIGION OPTIONS ARE... native american religions, Hinduism, Buddism, Jainsm, Sikhism, Shinto, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and New religions. I will provide you with the sources one you choose which religions you wnat to talk about when proving your definition This response constitutes 20% of your course grade.

[ I attached the list titled "some defeitions of religion.pdf"] 2) You must cite Brodd for each of your example traditions, i.e. at least THREE times. 3) You must cite primary course material for each of your three traditions, i.e. THREE primary source citations.
