How does one live a life as a Christian that honors and glorifies God? The answer is by reflecting Christ’s image by acting as He would in every situation. Because of what Jesus has done for sinners on the cross, they desire to live by His example in order to give Him glory. However, living a Christ-like life can only happen through the work of the Holy Spirit, who comes in to sinner’s hearts when they first put their trust in Jesus and the cross, growing them and making them more like Jesus. Many characters in books, stories, and movies have Christ-like qualities and characteristics, an example of this being Harper Lee’s masterpiece.
Constantly facing the darkness of looming greed and lust, humanity seems to be doomed to trudge in the mires of sin forever. However, while fear and chaos—especially a lack of guidance—can cause cruelty to flourish, it is also where kindness makes its greatest display.

Without proper order and parental guidance, humans are lead astray and band together only to create more chaos and cruelty. Even so, humans can come together to show kindness and love.

Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” tells a compelling story of growing up and coping with the aspects of everyday life, even when it be out of the ordinary.
After a sin transpires, the concept of morality is thrown away. Chillingworth successfully sieges Reverend Dimmesdale and his sanity as revenge for Dimmesdale’s sin of adultery.

(Golding 82). Simon, who represents genuine goodness of man, suggests that “‘maybe [the beast is] only us’” (Golding 89). His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon).

Injustice; the lack of fairness or justice. Years have passed since everyone officially became equal, but still in this world today there is injustice. Still in this world through some peoples eyes everyone does not look the same. If our world keeps the mindset that they are in today that word will always exist and never go away. To Kill a Mockingbird is a classic modern American literature novel and was immediately successful.
Racial injustice in To Kill a Mockingbird was malevolent due to the executing of a black man with false evidence, but today the racial injustice appears to be eliminated although it still exists. Today the legal system will not tolerate the racism like it is in the book To Kill a Mockingbird. Racism is normal in Maycomb county some support it and others are against, the Finches are high in society, although they still respect the blacks. Racial injustice throughout the book is a big factor with Calpurnia as a maid, And Atticus defending Tom Robinson, but less of a factor for everyday life in modern times.
Calpurnia can be a particularly difficult character to understand in To Kill a Mockingbird. She has worked for the Finch's family as the cook ever since Jem Finch was born. Even though Cal, which is what everyone always calls her for short, is just the Finch family's cook, she does way more than just cook. Calpurnia is loving towards the Finch family;and she acts as a motherly figure for Jem and Scout; she is a hard worker, and she goes above and beyond in what she does, and she likes to be presentable in public, especially in front of the other African-Americans in town.
Jacqueline Kelly’s book “The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate” takes place during the hot summer of Texas in 1899, Calpurnia; the main character, is trying her best to stay cool, so she decides that she will cut off one inch of her hair each week. She makes many discoveries, goes on adventures with her grandpa, and most of all, she strongly dislikes her “girlish” roles. One lesson that the story suggests is that even though specific genders have their own roles, it's actually okay if you want to do things that are unspecified for your gender. One example of how she doesn't like doing girly things, was when Calpurnia’s mother called her from her room to the kitchen to learn how to bake apple pie, while calpurnia has no intentions of learning how to do that. “There's no need to look like that, it's only a cooking lesson.”
The Unbalanced Law Being a black man in trouble with the law during the era of To Kill a Mockingbird is like trying to put out a fire with gasoline. During the 1930’s when the book took place racism was the cultural normality. The definition of racism is to believe one race is superior to another's often resulting in discrimination. In the book we see racism displayed in a court case that’s basis is a white mans word verses a black mans word. Throughout the trail in To Kill a Mockingbird the main characters each have a strong but different way in response the the racism displayed in the trail and in their daily lives.
