INT460 Week 3 Assignment Solved




This assignment is an exercise in reading contemporary culture theologically. The purpose is to heighten awareness of the nature of the culture in which the student is located with an eye to engaging in effective mission to the people of the culture. To accomplish this, a cultural text or trend will be respectfully described, examined, and evaluated. The assigned readings in Everyday Theology provide background and examples for this assignment.

Select a cultural trend (e.g., sexual expression, marriage, death, racism, pluralism, relativism, tolerance).

In at least 750 words, at least 150 words per criterion, complete the “Cultural Engagement #3” document. Criteria include:

  1. Describing the cultural trend and explain the larger cultural context in which the trend is located
  2. Identifying the claims, meaning, and/or purpose of the cultural trend
  3. Explaining how the cultural story of modernism and postmodernism fit within this trend
  4. Analyzing the influence of the trend for people in contemporary culture
  5. Developing a Christian response to the trend expressed in a winsome rather than adversarial manner

Use at least two scholarly sources in addition to the Bible.
