2. The distinction between Islamic and Christian views of sin and its remedy.
3. The critical point regarding Jesus divinity, crucifixion, resurrection, and ascension.
Your paper will be graded on adherence to style (10 percent) and critical discussion on each of the three issues listed above (30 percent for each issue).
