BIBLICAL THEOLOGY PAPER: PROPOSAL ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS
This proposal assignment is designed to initiate the Biblical Theology Paper and to provide an opportunity for initial feedback from the instructor. The focus is to connect leadership with theology and how that theology would form and inform a leader.
The student will select a theology from the list below, give an explanation of that theology and propose in two paragraphs how the chosen theology forms and informs leadership. Specific examples will be given in your paper but are not needed in the proposal.
A clear and concise sentence must be provided (see Liberty Online Writing Center). A Turabian-style bibliography of eight peer reviewed sources (in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible) that will be used in the paper must be included.
Title Page using the Sample Turabian Title Page template provided under Writing Style Guide.
