Shaunti Feldhahn portrays a powerful tool in her novel that should be a basis of Christian belief; that tool is prayer. She sees the importance of how it affects every situation Christians put themselves into, she suggests that through prayer, believers can fulfill their God given purpose. Her novel, “The Veritas Conflict,” insists that prayer should control the believer, because throughout the novel, prayer provides protection in the setting, it gives direction to the characters, and it brings support in the middle of conflict.

He further states, how patience is a “[women’s] proper response to trails of [her] faith, the manner in which [she] manifests [her] faith in works” (187). Here, McNamara gives us a definition of how patience is viewed in St. James’ notion and how Griselda’s existence appears to have been created through St. James scriptures.

Bradstreet followed her religion in hopes that her actions would lead to her husband being brought to salvation. She expresses these actions when writing, “That when we live no more, we may live ever. ”(Bradstreet 12).
She claims that God speaks directly to her and that she does not need a minister to preach to her or to read the bible. Mrs. Hutchinson has clearly violated our Puritan doctrine.

The Book “A Raisin in the Sun “ by Lorraine Hansberry , have many different events. Religion plays an important role in the character’s lives. People in real life have their own beliefs and in the book the reader can notice that Beneatha does not consider that God is important in her life.

Yes, she has a right to voice her opinion because of the First Amendment in our Constitution, but that makes it okay for the people that oppose her views to exercise their rights too. Also, building off of that, not everyone follows the same faith and religion she does, so she cannot try force her opinions on others because of her religion. Although I admire her for standing up for what she believes in and standing her ground, I don’t agree with how she’s doing it and I don’t think she’s the right person to set a good role model and be a hero. In a way she is like Mildred from Fahrenheit 451, she is stubborn and cannot deal with new ideas like how Mildred couldn’t handle Montag reading books because she was stuck in the old way of thinking.
