SELF-SELECTED APOLOGETICS ARGUMENT:THESIS STATEMENT –OPENING STAGE ASSIGNMENT
The Worldview I choose for this assignment is “Mormons.”
I have attached a sample for your review, which features another worldview as an example.
The function of a thesis statement is to provide the reader or hearer with a clear idea of the presenter’s purpose. A good thesis statement guides every part of the presentation. Knowing how to formulate a good thesis statement appropriate to the presentation is a vital communication skill for life and ministry. For this apologetics argument, the thesis will provide a statement that will govern the writing of every aspect of the paper. For this reason it is the first stage of writing. The careful formulation of a thesis is important for the presentation of apologetic ideas because it allows the writer to express ideas with precision, purpose, cohesion, and clarity. The thesis statement for this paper will express a critique of a worldview opposed to orthodox Christianity and a defense of Christianity against that worldview.
The thesis must be consistent with the overall goal of the assignment. The thesis statement must express a clear, precise, and concise critique of a worldview opposed to orthodox Christianity and a defense of Christianity against that worldview. It must be expressed in one (1) sentence (25-75 words long). The whole paper will be built around and upon this thesis statement.
