InstructionsThis essay should be a 600-900 word essay. This should be a close reading essay, and should use as evidence primarily passages from the work or works that you discuss. The essay should be in MLA essay format (see the attached sample essay below), and use MLA citations. A works cited entry and in-text citations for each text discussed are required. Analytical essays should be focused on making a debatable claim about the work in question.
Relationships with the Divine: choose 2 sacred works that we have read, 1 from the two Abrahamic faiths (Islam and Christianity) and 1 from the Eastern religions (Hinduism, Buddhism, and Confucianism) and build a compare/contrast argument about how the two texts you’ve chosen depict the relationship with the supernatural. You can consider any interaction between human beings (or animal characters) and supernatural elements like magic, demons, divine beings, God, ancestral spirits, or super powers. How do people in these stories connect with the supernatural? How are the similarities and differences between the texts significant?
