The paper shows that Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe is not just a novel written about racial issues. Stowe brings alive the reality of religious conflict throughout this novel. This paper emphasizes sympathies of Christ. This includes preparing for His return, the rewards patience and kindness bring, and the process of completely dependence on God.
The sympathies of Christ present one of the main focuses of Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Stowe sets out to create her characters with the teachings of Jesus and about the Christian responsibility to the oppressed.
