Reflection Questions
  • Look briefly in your World History book (contents and index) to find the approximate number of pages devoted to the following world regions up to AD 400. How would you account for the lack of coverage of these large regions of diverse peoples:
    Sub-Saharan Africa?

    The Americas?

    Non-Mediterranean Europe?

    Southeast Asia?

  • Compare Yoruba and either Greek or Roman polytheism with Christian beliefs in supernatural beings, indicating similarities and differences. Write three statements that might be useful in building bridges between the gospel and polytheistic teachings.

  • Based on your studies to date, what relationship, if any, do you see between cultural achievements and race, ethnicity, linguistic group, and/or geographical location?
