"A Wrinkle in Time" can often be mistaken as a story only published for the entertainment of readers; however, the author included the symbol of the Dark Thing in this book to communicate to readers that the devil is nefarious whether it is through distress, pain, fear, or distrust towards God. The Dark Thing caused Meg to postulate as if all species of maleficent deeds were attacking her at the same time; furthermore, this is how anybody would feel if they were to be in the presence of the devil, since he is the source of all evil. The Dark Thing represents the devil because it has also been the source of all evil in this book. Jesus fought the Dark Thing, according to Charles Wallace, in the book. In reality, Jesus fought the devil because He wants people to trust in God and for everybody to live in serenity; however, the devil wants people to disobey God, and live a terrible life.

That line in Beowulf is a perfect example of how highly the people of Geatland view Beowulf, and how Beowulf can be compared to Jesus.

The Luke’s Gospel is the most humane and popular gospel to majority of Christians. Within the gospel of Luke he made it known that while Jesus Christ was in fact spiritual and powerful. Jesus was also human at least in terms of his nature. “Luke emphasizes the concern of Jesus for women, for tax collectors and sinners, and for those on the fringes of society” (Stanton).
Quiñano, Julianne Grace D. November 13, 2015 BSP 201A Literature 1 Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing (Proverbs 12:18). This passage from the Holy Bible is never wrong because ever since God created the universe and until know, all human beings have already experienced being hurt with the words that were thrown to us. Words are powerful that it can cause big changes in anyone’s life. As I read the bestselling novel of Markus Zusak entitled The Book Thief, aside from realizing how powerful words are, I realized also that being an author of a book is strenuous. It requires creativity, lots of courage, perseverance and of course experiences.
