Write an essay for ONE of the following topics:

Essay Topic 1

What is Don Richardson's goal in coming to live with the Sawi people? He states that he is not interested in simply signing up converts or even in teaching the next generation Christian principals and behavior. What does he want? And why?

Essay Topic 2

Peace Child is a before-and-after book. There is a particular culture in place before Richardson arrived and brought new ideas and there is a particular culture that emerges out of the interchange between the author and the Sawi people. What is the world of the Sawi people like before Richardson arrives? What are the benefits of the Sawi culture before the influence of Richardson and the modern world? What are the challenges?

Essay Topic 3

It takes a great deal of intelligence to survive in the jungle without modern technology. Yet we often describe cultures like the Sawi tribe as "primitive." What is the difference between the kind of intelligence it takes for a Sawi family to survive in a stone age civilization and the kind of intelligence it takes to graduate from an American university? Are there different kinds of knowledge? Is a Sawi person more observant than the typical American student or less? How would a modern American student fare if set in the jungle with stone tools? How would a Sawi person do in high school or college? Write an essay contemplating Sawi intelligence.
