I wanted to explain his efforts throughout the Protestant Reformation and what kind of an impact they had on the Reformation .I went to my AP World History teacher for his advice on who I should do my narration essay on and for help.

In Samuel Adams: A Life, author Ira Stoll begins Adams’s biography with a prelude explaining the purpose of his book: to describe Samuel Adams, tell why history has largely forgotten him, and serve as a reminder for why we should remember him. On the whole, Stoll is true to his promise; he writes of Adams’s life, pulling accounts from Adams’s contemporaries as well as using excerpts of Adams’s personal correspondence and his numerous newspaper publications. Stoll’s research is evident in that he includes the opinions and research of other historians and Samuel Adams biographers. Stoll’s biography follows Samuel Adams from childhood to death, and thus essentially tells of the origins and formation of the United States. The biography is compelling,
Religion is a prominent factor in American literature, writers are able to express their values and opinions in several manners, albeit personal or factural. This is established through three writers in the mid-1700s, they are Winthorp, Edwards, and Paine. Firstly, Jonathan Edwards presents his views of religion and God by expressing personal experiences with the audience in his "Personal Narrative".

When he was younger he had a "particular secret place of my own in the woods, where i used to retire by myself," (p398) this secret praying location was where he could engage in his religious duties and contemplate life.

It was a taciturn gloomy morning, the year of 1862. The 12th of September. At the end of it, I might be with my family again or buried someplace underground.

The tears slid down my wife’s face and my daughters lingered into their mother’s arms to cover their dripping faces.

At the Culver-Stockton library, there are several primary sources available to me. There are a few books, and even more electronic resources.

In the initial days of colonization, community ministers were funded to start religious libraries. While the Bible was central reading in all households, it was supplemented by other printed material. The “Bay Psalm Book” published in 1640, is often referred to America’s first best-seller.

For my novel of choice, I chose The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. The novel follows Nathan price, a Baptist preacher, and his family as he attempts to bring salvation to people in Belgian Congo. However, this novel is way more complex than I thought it would be since it deals with issues involving family dynamics, religion, injustice, politics and many more. The novel is also told from five different points of view from Orleanna Price and her four daughters Rachel, Leah, Adah and Ruth May.
