• Week 3 Considerations
Posted on: Monday, May 30, 2016 6:35:35 AM EDT
Thank you for your posts to the DB. This week you have two assignments due: Discussion Board #3 as well at the Theology of Missions paper. With respect to the paper, please take time this week to look over BOTH the rubric and the assignment instructions for the Theology of Missions Paper. It is very important that you understand the objectives and requirements. Please try to go deeper than simply surface considerations of common biblical passages, and construct a thoughtful and comprehensive paper. You must cite the textbooks and fully develop your ideas according to the assignment instructions.
People who do well on this paper have fully developed introductions and conclusions that bring cohesion to their theologies. In other words, they have common threads and passages that support their argumentation. Papers should read as one cohesive theological system, not six or seven small ideas strung together without a common thread or rationale.
