Swamped with your writing assignments? Take the weight off your shoulder!
Unit One considers the importance of worldview, not the mere definition of it, but its real-world implications. Christian Theism is then offered as the most exemplary explanation of reality, against which all other possible worldviews are to be ranged, judged, and scrutinized.
Your Complete assignment is your opportunity to react meaningfully and decisively with the idea of worldview, and the place of Christian Theism within it.
You will write an exploratory essay, at least 1000 words, utilizing at least three scholarly sources. Both the READ and ATTEND sections of Unit One should be engaged in your essay.
APA guidelines are to be followed as you format your paper, including citing your sources and providing references.
