Reln 220: Assignment #3
1. Read the required sections of Augustine's The City of God (Online). Choose one of the questions Augustine is grappling with:
--Is there a plan to human history?
--What does God want from humans? Can they provide it?
--What can Christians hope for?
--Can there be justice in this world?
--What is the relationship between human governments and the communities of Christians?
--Can Christians create a "heaven on earth"?
2. Write a 2-3 page typed paper explaining how Augustine answers this question and your response to it. Use at least two of the documents in Van Voorst (68-102) to provide some evidence for your ideas.
