[ Possible examples: the Virgin of Guadalupe in the U.S., Sunday Adelaja, the Anglican Communion; others?] Option B. Four themes: The semester in review. Our course was broken into four units, by theme. Write a 4-paragraph essay in which you use specific cases to provide a brief overview of each theme. The four themes, along with the cases you should use , are given below. Focus on summarizing how each case illustrates the theme of that unit. 1. As Christianity expanded globally, it took new forms in response to local needs and customs; sometimes (but not always), these changes were controversial. [ Cases to use: Pick THREE of these: the Chinese Rites controversy; Catholicism in 17th-century Japan; Project Light in Guatemala; Pentecostalism in Korea.] 2. Christianity has been used to both legitimate and challenge global systems such as colonialism, neocolonialism, and consumer capitalism. [ Cases to use: Pick THREE of these: the Requerimiento; Antonianism; liberation theology; prosperity theology.] 3. Globalization has led to conflict between Christians and non-Christians, but also to efforts at peaceful coexistence. [ Cases to use: the Nigerian Sharia controversy; the “Christian state” debate in Fiji; debates about interfaith dialogue in the World Council of Churches.] 4. As Christianity’s center of gravity has shifted to the global South, Christian influences now flow from the global South into the global North. [ Cases to use: the Virgin of Guadalupe in the U.S.; Sunday Adelaja; the crisis in the Anglican Communion.]

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
