Religion and Theology religion interview
Interview someone who is a practitioner of a religion significantly different than your own. This cannot be a friend or relative. Suspend all judgments and prejudices that you may have about this specific religious tradition. Explore and discover the interviewee’s beliefs and values. This should include their practices, festivals and rituals. You must consult sources other than your interviewee to see how he or she may differ from your research into this religious tradition. You should write an essay about this person. It can NOT be a transcript of your interview. An essay will have a point of view and be based upon data (from the interview and from your research). Your essay should be at least 4-5 pages, double-spaced, 12 point type, submitted as an attachment in Microsoft Word format.
Please do not forget to do the proper things for any academic paper: checking grammar and spelling, affixing a descriptive title to your essay, following proper style, including paragraph use and indentation, using internal citations and references, and maintaining academic forms of expression. If any of these things are unclear or unknown to you, please submit your paper to the writing center for their assistance.
When you have completed your assignment, please post a copy to the discussion board.
