Abstract:     
The authors describe an interdisciplinary undergraduate course exploring multiple intersections of economics and religion, using a variety of textual sources, exercises, and teaching methods from both fields. They conclude that such a course can be valuable for both majors and non-majors, although for different reasons. Economics majors may gain a greater awareness of the philosophical underpinnings and ethical implications of their social science, while non-economists may gain an appreciation for the many ways in which the economic way of thinking affects and can be applied to aspects of their everyday lives.
