Religion - Judaism and Islam, Research Paper
Write a comparative study on Judaism and Islam. Must describe and analyze the major similarities and differences between the two religions. Make sure that paper is detailed, clear, well-organized, and logically coherent. There are seven typical components of a religious belief-system or world-view: 1. the nature, origins, and destiny of the cosmos. 2. God, the gods, or other divine/supernatural beings. 3. Human nature and the human condition/predicament. 4. Salvation, redemption, deliverance, or liberation from the human condition/predicament. 5. Right conduct. 6. The final destiny of all things. 7. The nature and membership of the religious community. Every religion has something to say on these seven subjects, you must compare and contrast the two religions you select under the foregoing seven headings. Paper must be based on and should contain appropriate citations to the two sections on the BBC religions site. Have one selected primary source selection from the Online Anthology on EACH of the TWO religions you are comparing. DO NOT use any other sources in preparing this paper. The Anthology is: http://www.cronksite.com/
The sources for each of the six possible paper topics are: Judaism and Islam
• Sections on the BBC Religions site
• Selections from the Hebrew Bible (Online Anthology, 265-92)
• Selections from the Koran (Qur'an) (Online Anthology, 385-400)
Supporting quotations: Support your analysis with at least 4 relevant and substantial quotations from your primary sources, two from one of your primary source selections from the Online Anthology, and two from the other of your Online Anthology selections. (A "substantial" quotation is at least 50 words long).
Works cited and citations include a list at the end of your paper, and include correct page citations to your sources in the body of your paper.
Paper must be at least 1,200 words in length, not counting works cited. Prepare your paper with an up-to-date and state-of-the-art word-processing program such as Microsoft
Word. Do NOT use Microsoft Works, which does not function well with online courses. Set your page
size to 8.5 width and 11.0 length (8½" x 11"), and leave margins of at least one inch on all four sides of
your pages. Your paper must be single-spaced, but double-space between paragraphs. Use either a
Times New Roman (size 12) or an Arial (size 10 or 11) font. Insert page numbers as footers bottom and
center on your pages. Do NOT use the space-bar for indenting or formatting; use the tab and formatting
systems in your word processor. Save and submit your paper in *.doc or *.docx format. In general,
use standard word-processing methods in preparing your paper. Type your name and the title of this course in the upper right-hand or upper left-hand corner of the first
page of your paper. Skip four spaces between this heading and the title of your paper.
Write largely in your own words (i.e., don't quote too much) and according to the ordinary rules and
principles of Standard American English. Your paper should contain sufficient detail and be clearly,
coherently, concisely, and correctly written (complete and properly structured sentences, appropriate
word usage, correct spelling and punctuation, proper paragraphing, good overall organization, etc.).
Sloppy, incorrect, and unclear writing reflects sloppy, incorrect, and unclear thinking. Note that you will
lose credit for bad writing. (See also Course Announcement 2.5 on "Paper Assignments, Online
Discussions, and Plagiarism" in the Course Announcements I file on the course home page.)
