The Essay assignments occur in Module 2, Module 4, Module 6 and Module 8. Each essay should be in APA format and should discuss the required prompt. This assignment does not require a Title page or Abstract page, but does require a Reference page and in-text citations.
Each essay will review a different topic from the text and will also link each topic with Scripture. Each essay should have a word count of at least 500 words.
