In 250 or more words, write an essay comparing one western Asiatic (i.e., Middle Eastern) religion with one south or east Asian religion on one of the topics listed below. Thus: Pick any one religion from column A Then pick any one religion from column B:

Column A   Column B

Christianity                                                 Hinduism

Islam                                                          Buddhism


How do each of these two religions solve the problem of human beings, as they see it? Compare them to each other: how is one religion’s conviction about the fundamental human problem similar to the other religion’s? how is it different? How is one religion’s solution to that problem similar to the other religion’s solution? How is it different?
