You are required to summarize in a concise and accurate manner—in your own words—the central insights and argument that an author presents in a text or passage. In many ways, the challenge is to restate the author’s central thesis and major evidence that an author uses to support their argument.  As mentioned above, in identifying the author’s primary aim and purpose, you need to avoid offering your own evaluation or reaction.  Ultimately, the objective in this part of the learning exercise is for you: (a) to engage a text in a serious fashion, and (b) to offer a concise summary in your own words of the assigned reading.
* Once this is done, you then are invited—in three or four sentences—to identify two essential or powerful insights that you have derived from this reading assignment? In other words, after completing your analysis of the text and writing a concise summary, what are the two main “takeaways” from your learning?
* Finally, after this is done, and once again in only two or three sentences, articulate two “connections” which you would draw from this reading assignment? These connections may be related (a) to some other theological topic that has been covered in this course, or (b) to some dimension of human experience.
