Letters from a skeptic reflection Assignments | Get Homework Help
The purpose of this assignment is not to summarize the book’s content.
Letters from a Skeptic contains a personal dialogue between a father and son about Christian faith. The purpose of this assignment is to relate these correspondences to your own journey of faith.
In his preface, Boyd states that one goal of the book is to “dispel [the] myth” that “rational obstacles to the faith that unbelievers have are disingenuous and that believers have no responsibility for knowing and sharing the rational foundation of the faith they hold” (10). To that end, this assignment will require you to think critically about your faith, insofar as the letters themselves reflect this kind of activity.
At the same time, the letters preserve a very personal dialogue about Christian faith. To that end, this assignment is primarily about your personal and engaged reflection on the letters, rather than your dispassionate analysis.
So, here is what you should write: Choose two correspondences (the table of contents will help you identify a complete “correspondence.” You may NOT select Correspondence 4). For each correspondence, consider the following:
1-Label the section with the appropriate Correspondence Number and restate the topic directly from the book. For instance: Correspondence 13: Why trust the Gospel account?
2-Why did you choose this correspondence? Why is the question/issue important to you? In what contexts have you been confronted with this same question in your own life? (100-150 words)
3-Prior to reading Gregory Boyd’s answer to the question, what responses had you heard people give to this question/issue? (100-150 words)
4-Is the response that Boyd offers to his father convincing to you? Why, or why not? Evaluate its strengths and weaknesses. (150-200 words)
5-How does it benefit the Christian believer to have an answer to this question? What concrete implications does this question/issue have for daily Christian living? (100-150 words)
How should I write?
Respond to the five correspondence questions (above) in a Word document.
Responses should be logical, grammatically accurate and use correct spelling and sentence structure. Responses should demonstrate the “lucid brevity” that is the hallmark of good academic writing.
How long should my responses be?
The five correspondence questions (above) specify the length of each response (by word count).
