Edward Taylor felt strongly in his beliefs of Puritan values and in doing so became a minister of his faith. Before becoming a minister, he believed that he needed to prove his entrance into the religion by expressing his conviction in written form to demonstrate that he was also a “chosen one”. His writings are full of emotion and parities with the bible providing proof of God’s will and love. Taylor wants to show that God is merciful and always the controlling factor in all situations through the Puritan beliefs.

A great amount of critical thinking has me constantly trying to describe the forceful tactics of Screwtape and his very sly and cunning ways. While the book is primarily targeted to Christians, it can be read and interpreted differently by a wide range of people (in my opinion). The devil works in many different ways to try and achieve the ultimate goal of gaining another follower. Throughout this reading, I have selected three chapters that have caused me to think the most.

He is also shaped by his father’s request for him to be “trained in the law [so he] can hold [his] own.” His father, who didn’t make the best of choices, was still a great factor in helping Bayard achieve greatness.
Frankenstein’s creature can be compared to the parable of the prodigal’s son found in Luke’s gospel of the bible. The prodigal’s son was a young man who was very immature in his ways.
