In the Sacred Texts booklet, you will find three Jewish texts, three Christian texts and three Islamic texts.
For each of the religious systems: Select one of the texts and explain why you have chosen it as most representative of the religious system; Address the reasons why the other two readings were not, in your assessment, as representative. You MAY NOT use outside sources to make your case. Limit yourself to the text itself, your lecture notes and your textbook.

Need help with citation? I’ve created a video for you. Still need help? The Center for Teaching and Learning can help. (Links to an external site.) Alternatively, see me during Office Hours. I’ll walk you through it.
If for whatever reason you do not wish to use the Answer Sheet written files should be .doc/.docx or .pdf. Canvas does not allow me to view .pages.
No cover page or headers, please.
