As we have journeyed throughout the semester we have focused our studies on identifying major themes and different teachings of the religions of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. We have either directly or indirectly focused on developing a deeper understanding of each religions’ theology, sacred scriptures, code of ethics, prayer and worship rituals, and a brief history of the religion.

No unread replies.No replies.
Hello everyone, Here we are in the last week of the semester. For this final week, you will be writing one final written report that will be a comparative analysis of how the various religions that we have covered throughout the semester address a particular theme of your choice.
MODULE 6: July 29 – August 4 — Your Thematic Written Report There are two parts to this report: Part 1: Module 6 Discussion – Theme Selection for Final Written Report —> This will be completed as a discussion post where you are asked to select a theme from the list provided and then identify at least 6 different sources that you intend to use within your report. When determining sources, try to identify at least one source for each religion as it relates to the topic that you have chosen. As you write the written report itself, you may refer to additional sources and you may decide not to use all of the sources that you provide in this initial discussion. This discussion post is due on Thursday, August 3 . Although this discussion post is not due until Thursday of this upcoming week, I would strongly advise that you submit it earlier so that you can utilize the rest of your time this week focusing on the written report itself.
Part 2: Final Thematic Written Report —> This report will be based on the topic you selected for the discussion post and provided sources for and the report itself is worth 15% of your final grade for this class. As you write the report, I would advise that you review previously completed assignments and discussions for this course and utilize some of the information in the previously submitted work. Also, please make sure that you review the rubric for this report found at the bottom of the assignment instructions and embedded directly within the assignment itself. Prior to submitting the assignment, make sure that you incorporate the necessary direct quotations with accompanying citations as footnotes. If you need assistance with this, refer to the following page: CMOS Resources . In the following video, I provide a detailed explanation of the requirements of this report for those students who may need additional assistance. https://youtu.be/URciZV3hpwELinks to an external site. Please Note: Due 8/3 Additionally, if you have not yet completed any of the discussions, assignments, or quizzes for this course or you would like to resubmit any previously completed work for a better grade, please make sure that you do no later than Saturday, August 5. If you would like to retake one of the weekly quizzes, email me so that I can make it available for you. Thank you and have a great week.

Selecting Theme for Final Thematic Report & Accumulation of Sources
After reviewing all previous textbook readings, discuss the following:
As we have journeyed throughout the semester we have focused our studies on identifying major themes and different teachings of the religions of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism. We have either directly or indirectly focused on developing a deeper understanding of each religions’ theology, sacred scriptures, code of ethics, prayer and worship rituals, and a brief history of the religion. For the most part, we have looked at each of these religions independently, but now as we begin to wrap up our course we will revisit these religions and begin to examine them critically and ask the intriguing question: What similarities (and differences) do these religions share amongst each other regarding their teachings of a specific topic?
For your final written report, you will select a theme, from the list below, and recapitulate each religion’s teaching on that particular theme. You will then complete a comparative analysis on the significant similarities that each religion has with Catholicism specifically – not just Christianity in light of the topic as well as delineate their distinct differences. Once you have completed the comparative analysis, you will reflect on the following question:
· How can (or how has) the knowledge gleaned in this report and in this course change(d) your perspective/outlook on dialogue with people of other faiths? '
· You can share a personal experience that you have had with someone of a different faith background or how you think having a better understanding of these different teachings will help shape your future interactions with people of different faiths.
1. Select the theme, from the list below, that you plan on focusing on for the final report.
2. Identify at least 6 different sources (other than the course text) that you plan on utilizing within your final written report.
· You will need to identify at least 1 different source for each of the 5 religions
B. For each of the sources, provide the following:
2. Name of the Source
2. Website URL to the source
2. Which religion the source pertains to
3. Ex: Christianity, Hinduism
1. If it pertains to more than one you may list them all.
List of Selected Themes:
