Like the Hebrew and Christian Bible, the Qur’an claims to be a text revealed by God for humanity. Using suras as evidence, along with Garry Wills’ study of What the Qur’an Meant, discuss how Islam reflects its origins in a desert environment and relies upon embracing the prophets of Judaism and Christianity, but also rejects certain elements of those traditions to become a new, third monotheism. Finally, what is the evidence from the Qu’ran for a nonviolent understanding of jihad?
Please only use Koran, surahs # 37, 47, 61; and Wills, What the Qur’an Meant, Chs. 4, 6, 8 which I uploaded.

The paper has to be written using two different books from the class The Universe Next Door by James W. Sire and World Religions and Cults 101 by Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz and our lectures from the class. I am not sure how this works but here are the instructions from the professor.
Section I. Discuss faith and worldview and its connection to different historical eras, culture formation, and knowledge and truth construction. Give specific examples of how this may play out in our society. I can scan and send over all lectures notes also.
Section II. Choose one specific worldview presented in the course (including lecture material and the Sire  or Wood  texts). Compare (similarities) and contrast (differences) the worldview to the Christian worldview. Include a discussion of the key and important tenets of each worldview and how the implications of these different worldviews play out in society.
Section III. Which worldview do you most closely identify with? Explain how your faith and worldview inform and guide your choices, your practices, your career, and your relationships. Justify your stance.(Since this is a personal reflection, this section may be written in first person.)
Section IV. Discuss how faith and a corresponding worldview relate to wise management. Apply faith and worldview values and ideas to questions of business management, business decisions, business practices, and relationships in business.
