Throughout literature, themes and messages have made strong points to convey an idea. Ranging from the epics of old, centered on selflessness and courage, to the modern stories revealing moral-building characteristics, themes play an important part in connecting the writing to the reader.

Religion has an enormous influence in The Poisonwood Bible, primarily during the first two-thirds of the book because of the presence of Nathan. One prime example of this is when Anatole, the interpreter between the Price family
Lamott, continues to explain why she makes her son go to church. Lamott reveals the personal relationship of people within the church but focuses on a woman who secretly always gives her dimes to support her and her son, even though they no longer need it. Lamott understands that her son is cared for by others in the church. In the chapter Traveling Mercies (Lamott, 2006, p. 106) understanding the difference of our timing opposed to God 's timing seems to be the lesson Lamott discusses.

“I celebrate myself, and sing myself “And what I assume you shall assume, “For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.” A groan escaped my lips as Mary’s polished voice began to recite the first three lines of Walt Whitman’s Song of Myself. She had almost the entire poem memorized, and would begin to quote certain lines when they pertained to a situation, or when she was just trying to annoy me. She fell in love with the poem when she was in the eighth grade after doing some American poet project for her English class. Upon hearing my voice of discontent, Mary paused and turned her head to look at me from between the blades of grass we both laid on. Her eyes flickered to the grass between us, and pulled a blade out of the ground
