you will write a persuasive essay in which you will discuss why the study of world religion matters in our world today. In milestone 2, you chose the religious tradition to explore in detail. In milestone 3, you selected the pillar of analysis from which to base your point of view. In milestone 4, you thought about how your religious tradition approaches a specific social concern.

 

Now, step back and examine the role the pillar of analysis you selected plays in a global world, from the perspective of your chosen religious tradition. From this perspective, explore, answer, and defend your response to the following questions:

 

Why do people participate in religion? What were their motivations thousands of years ago? What are their motivations today?

 

What’s the point of studying religion? What important lessons can we take from the study of religion? 

 

Given what you’ve covered in your weekly milestones, what role does your selected religious tradition play in contemporary society? Can your selected religious tradition, or any religious tradition, be a positive cultural presence?

 

Consider your answers to the questions outlined above.

 

Draft a persuasive essay of 5–7 pages in length responding to and defending your answers to the questions outlined above.

 

Be sure your essay is formatted using APA format.
