RA2 – The Open Horizon of Apologetics
This second (and final) research assignment is "open topic"--students will be choosing their own apologetics "issue", articulating it, and grappling with it.
The "prompt" is much more free-form and suggestive than in RA1. Students should follow it, of course, but should also note that this week's assignment, by its very nature, allows a bit more interpretative and compositional freedom.
1) First, you'll need to choose your "issue." Ask yourself these questions (or ones like them): What is a critique from the non-Christian culture of the Christian church? What is a critique of Christianity from the non-Christian forces in the academy or sciences? Are there any challenges to orthodox Christian faith which are more pressing now than before in the history of the faith? As you think through these questions, be especially attuned to what answers excite the most passionate feelings or attention on your part. You'll want to choose a topic that is not only pressing and relevant, but that is personally significant to you and about which you feel like you have something substantial to argue.
2) Second, you'll need to research the issue. For this assignment, your textbooks must be cited at least once each (per usual), but you will also need to call on at least three sources relating to the issue you have chosen. These sources should be reputable--this means that online sources ought to be used with caution. There are a lot of non-reputable sites with erroneous information, and using these sorts of things as "sources" in an academic paper will lower your grade. My recommendation is to look-up the topic online first, just to gain a general understanding, but then draw your sources primarily from books. Some of the online info may direct you toward hard-copy sources. If you find something that is excellent online, then you can use it. If you are uncertain about an online source, email me.
3) Third, you will begin writing your essay. The first step will be to articulate this issue and its importance to the Christian faith today. What is the background of the issue? Who is raising the issue? Have there been other attempts to deal with the issue that you find wanting? In short, give your reader a robust context in which to understand your apologetic response. This portion of the paper should take up about one-third of your overall paper length.
4) Next, you need to set-out your own apologetic response to the raised issue. Call upon your training thus far in our course to do so. Remember to grapple with the issue in a nuanced, critical, but generous manner, being sure to highlight where the issue is contributing something that Christians can actually learn from. This part of your paper, which is the most important part, should be about half of your overall paper length.
5) Finally, for the remainder of your paper length, sum up your own contribution to the discussion of this apologetic issue, and briefly propose some ways in which the church-at-large can utilize the insights you have provided. 
Total paper length can be anywhere from 1,200 to 1,800 words. This is a generous page range, allowing you to articulate arguments of more powerful simplicity or more intricate complexity, depending on the issue you end up choosing. Remember that longer does not necessarily equal better. Great exposition and arguments can be made in less space by skilled writers, but you'll always want to be sure that you are being thorough enough in your articulations. Any paper longer or shorter than this page range may be deducted up to 10%, so plan your writing carefully.
As always, make sure that you write in light of the following rubric:
