Using Inside Out Method

Format Chicago/Turabian

Volume of 1000 – 1200 pages (4 pages)
Assignment type : Essay

Use the “Inside Out” approach 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. This first part of starting “inside” their plausibility structures is often the weakest part of the essay for students. Make sure you thoroughly study the notes pertaining to this method as well as Keller’s section on A and B beliefs. Your essay should reflect, clearly explicate, and apply the central components of the “Inside Out” model as you engage your secular friend.
Pay close attention to having a clear organization and relevant scholarly/academic sources, which must be used effectively. There must be 3 scholarly/academic references used in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible. Strong papers will use sources without simply stacking quotes on top of each other; a string of quotes will not normally be an effective way to persuade a friend in a conversation. Lastly, although you are contemplating and interacting with a hypothetical scenario concerning how a conversation would go, please avoid writing out an actual dialogue in the paper. You can make comments about how a conversation might begin or how it might progress but don’t write as if you are dialoging with your friend in the paper.
Your paper must be 1,000–1,200 words. Submit your paper as a Microsoft Word document with both prompts addressed. Essay 2 must use Times New Roman, 12-point font, follow current Turabian format, and be uploaded to Blackboard.
