Write the Research Paper using the topic and proposal you submitted in Module/Week 3. Your paper must have a thesis statement (this is not a survey of material). Your paper must be thoroughly documented and not contain your opinion. The conclusion section must be based on the research provided in the body of your paper.
Your paper must include the following (according to current Turabian format):
• Title page
• Table of Contents: Must show a clearly defined outline that will also be visible throughout the paper. Include the section headings in the body of your paper that are found in the Turabian manual under section heading use and formats.
• Introduction: Strong paragraph that introduces your topic and clearly reveals what you intend to show to the reader (must include the substance of your thesis statement, purpose, and brief overview of your paper).
• Thesis Statement: 1–2 sentence statement that captures the focus of your research and informs your reader about the purpose of the paper and previews its main ideas.
• Body: Its structured development must mirror your outline. This is where you prove your point while honestly interacting with opposing views and major objections. Make sure to include transitional sentences to ensure a flow and sense of unity from paragraph to paragraph.
• Conclusion: It must not be a mere restatement of your thesis. Instead, your conclusion must be a synthesis of the information presented in the body. It must bring the reader to the full level of understanding of your topic that you have yourself reached.
• Selected Bibliography (including at least 10 sources, 4 of which must be primary sources—not counting the Bible).

Formatting Guidelines
The format guidelines for this paper are according to the current Turabian edition and are as follows:
1. Footnotes are to be used to document research in the body of your paper (no in-text citations or endnotes). This paper must have a minimum of 20–25 footnotes.
2. The body of the paper (Introduction to Conclusion) must be a minimum of 12 full pages in length and must not exceed 15 pages in length.
3. The completed paper must encompass all 7 sections above and be written in current Turabian format (see the Turabian manual).
4. Text must be double-spaced and written in 12 pt. Times New Roman font. Use a recent version of Microsoft Word in which to write your paper.
5. Misspellings, grammatical errors, poor syntax, excessive use of the first person, or failure to comply with all structural/content criteria will count against your grade.
6. Avoid inserting personal reflections or devotional-type material in the Research Paper.

A Word about Sources
In order to gather sources for a research paper of this magnitude, one might be tempted to go to an Internet search engine like Google, type a keyword related to one’s topic, and collect sources from the first 20–30 hits displayed. You must resist such temptation. As a rule, the Internet is not an acceptable resource for research papers (there are very few exceptions). Instead, we recommend that you primarily use the following type of sources* while making sure that you cite all works used in your Research Paper and that you include only work cited in your bibliography:
• Scholarly journal articles: These are useful for their survey of the critical issues related to the subject and their bibliography, which could give you useful leads on the top scholars and works in the field.
• Primary sources: These must take precedence over secondary sources. A primary source is firsthand account or direct evidence concerning a subject matter under examination while secondary sources present an assessment or an interpretation of primary sources (i.e., Augustine’s own work City of God is a primary source about Augustine’s view of the struggle between good and evil; while Augustine of Hippo: A Biography by Peter Brown is a secondary source).
• Scholarly works: These include books, monographs, serials, and manuscripts written by experts in the field as opposed to dubious works whose value cannot be ascertained (ask yourself if the critic’s credentials and works suggest that he/she is qualified).
*This list is not intended to be exhaustive. You may use other types of sources including secondary sources, but you must make every effort to reference only those works that document the subject matter faithfully and accurately.
