Murfree vividly described how the characters would participate in religious congregations, listening attentively to sermons as preacher Kelsey would deliver passages from the New Testament. The preacher would discuss topics like “fate and free agency, free will and foreordination, infinite mercy and infinite justice, God 's loving kindness and man 's intolerable misery, redemption and damnation” (187). Because of this, images of evil and the devil was conjured, while the preacher would emphasize the importance of confession and repentance of sin.
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.
