Part 1 (7-8 pages): a descriptive/objective overview of religion or some specific belief/practice of religion.
Option 1: Mormonism, Hinduism,
Buddhism,
Jainism, Sikhism, Shinto, Judaism, Islam,
Zoroastrianism
and Baha’i, and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Lives of Founders/Leaders
You
may choose to write a research paper on the life of one of the founders, one
who was of particular influence in the development of the religion, or of an
individual in a current leadership position (for example the Dali Lama of
Tibetan Buddhism). The paper should include biographical information but
also a discussion on (possible) influences (persons or teachings) on that
individual.
Sects of the Religions
Just
as Christianity includes Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestants (which are further
divided into Baptist, Presbyterian, Methodist, etc.), likewise also many of
these religions have different sects. You may wish to write about a
specific sect of a religion (for example, Shiite Islam or Tibetan Buddhism).
Beliefs/Doctrines
Discuss
in detail a specific belief in a religion.
Texts
You
may wish to write a paper about one or more of the writings associated with a
particular religion. If so, you would want to include in the paper such
things as the following: Name(s) of the writings; origin and development;
contents; how it is used in the religion, etc.
Practices
You
may wish to highlight a specific ritual, practice, or tradition associated with
a religion. This might include specific styles of dress, food laws, rites
of passage, etc. You may even give an overview of the important dates on
the calendar a particular religion. In either instance, include such
things as their name(s), history of the practice, significance of the practice,
description of the practice, etc.
Parts 2 and 3: Christian Response Section (require)
Each
paper will conclude with a section on a Christian response to this religion.
Part 2:
equip Christians with biblical response.
This
would entail discussing various biblical texts which a Christian would need to
know that addresses some theological belief or religious practice of the
religion studied to put it in context to equip a Christian how to evaluate
them.
Part 3:
offer adherents to the religion a Christian response.
That
could entail a comparison/contrast in theology or worldview, but not simply as
a means to show how they are the same or different; rather it is to address
what would be Christian objections. This will not be a long section, about
2 pages minimum for each section. These sections still require research.
MUST FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW;
Length: 11-12 minimum (Part 1: 7-8; Part 2: 2; Part 3: 2 split)
Margins: 1” margins on all sides; left justify only.
Font: 12pt
Times New Roman only.
Spacing: Double-space; except for block quotes, which are indented on the left only and single-spaced.
Organization: Use
section headings to organize the paper.
Documentation: Footnotes
only, using Turabian style for both
footnotes and bibliography entries.
If a website is the Official website of a religion, that will typically be a good source for objective part 1 of the paper but still should not be used alone. There should be a blend of sources about the religion being studied. Sources that give objective information about religion and still offer some critique are acceptable as well.
