How and why did the war come to take on a transcendent meaning, or a “holy quality,” as david blight, in “god in america – a nation reborn,” calls it?

Discussion Question:
Themes of sacrifice and redemption were important during the Civil War. What did it mean then to understand death and suffering in a theological way? How and why did the war come to take on a transcendent meaning, or a “holy quality,” as David Blight, in “God in America – A Nation Reborn,” calls it?
Your answer should make at least two specific references to the reading and/or video. But it is not just a recitation of facts from the reading/video but rather a discussion of things such as your opinion of the point under discussion, why you hold that opinion, how you see the point consistent or inconsistent with what you have learned so far, correlation with contemporary experience, implications for the future, etc. Makes connections to previous or current content or to real-life situations. Ideas should build upon each other.

And secondly, their sexual ethic

Use the “Inside Out” approach from chapter 10 of Apologetics at the Cross to respond to the
following statement posed to you by a secular friend: “My biggest problem with Christianity is,
for one, that Christians seem so intolerant and judgmental. And secondly, their sexual ethic
seems to suppress basic human desires and our freedom to live fulfilled lives.” Remember to
start inside their own plausibility structures and work to the explanatory power of the gospel.
Make sure you thoroughly study the notes pertaining to this method as well as Keller’s section
on A and B beliefs. Your essay must reflect, clearly explicate, and apply the central components
of the “Inside Out” model as you engage your secular friend. Guidelines to follow include:
 Paper length of approximately 1000 – 1200 words (not including title and bibliography
pages) submitted in a Word document
 Turabian format (review the Sample Paper for a great guide)
 At least three (3) citations from scholarly/academic sources, in addition to citations from
Apologetics at the Cross and the Bible, for a minimum of five (5) references
 Acceptable sources include scholarly journals, books, articles, and other published works
o Have a clear organization and relevant use of academic sources; integrate them in
an organic and useful way instead of “tacking them on” to meet a requirement
o Avoid simply stringing quotes together at length, as this is not an effective way to
persuade a friend
 Though a hypothetical conversation is used in the prompt, this is still meant to be a
formal paper so first-person, and a conversational back-and-forth style are to be avoided.
You are also encouraged to view the Writing Style Guide located in the Student Responsibilities
tab of the Course Overview. Once you access the Student Responsibilities area, scroll down to
locate the link to the Writing Style Guide. You will then visit the official style guides (i.e., APA,
MLA, or Turabian) required in formulating your assignment.
