Final Integrative Paper for MS708 MCore PLO for Assessment in MS708: "Conduct social and cultural analysis for the interpretation of the gospel in contemporary settings" Method of Assessment: Final Integrative Paper Assignment: Each student will submit a 10-page paper at the end of class reflecting on the different ways Christians have theologically attempted to relate Christian faith with other religions, such as outlined by Paul Knitter in Introducing Theologies of Religion. The student will also need to integrate knowledge learned from their ethnographic interview and/or site visit experience, which enhanced their understanding of interacting with people of other faiths. In other words, this paper will present the student’s own informed theology of World Religions, but it must be supported by additional academic resources. Basically, the student is making a position and defending it with both research and ethnographic evidence from the interview and site visit. How we approach people of other faiths is an extension of our theology. After having this entire class, and thinking about other World Religions and their ideas and even taking the time to speak to someone from another faith and/or visit (even if virtually) a worship service of another faith, what is a Christian theological response to people of another faith? Some of the theological questions the student may want to consider are: Is God at work in other religions? If so, how? If not, how do you explain the religious faith and practices of other religions? How should Christians explain truth, if any, found in other faiths? Can God’s activity in other faiths be salvific, if not, what role does it play? What is the purpose of General Revelation? Can ideas or practices of other faiths be contextualized into Christianity? Why or why not? What is the role of Interfaith dialog and how should Christians be involved? How should the Church respond to a pluralistic context in our Postmodern world? It is also important to provide scriptural support for the position taken. Examples of scriptural passages for consideration includes the following: John 14:1-14 John 10:1-21 1 John 4:1-21 Acts 17:16-34 Romans 1:18-24 Romans 2:12-16 It is expected that the student will utilize a minimum of five academic resources and present them in a bibliography. These resources should include at least three academic articles from peer-reviewed periodicals (not popular resources such as Christianity Today, etc.). Any Internet resources used must be scholarly. If there is a question about any resource, check with the professor to see if it is acceptable. The student will also need to integrate things learned from their ethnographic interview and/or site visit into their position paper. The final paper should be double-spaced and use a standard formatting (most types are acceptable, but be consistent throughout the paper). This paper will be graded on how well the student presents their own theology of World Religions and supports their position from scripture and theological arguments. The student should be sure to include how their interactions with people of other faiths for this class have impacted their theological position.
