1,000–1250-word paper evaluating the Christian’s role in ethical research. This assignment must be formatted
in current Turabian style and include a title page, sectional headings, and a bibliography. It must also utilize 3–
5 sources. The 3–5 sources must include course materials (textbooks and presentations), Scripture, and at

discussion of ethical research obligations within the context of public policy research and how ethical
