Biblical Allusions Biblical allusions are famous in John Steinbeck's, The Grapes of Wrath. The biblical imagery that is demonstrated throughout the novel significantly enhances the meaning of the story all the way through the development of the characters and the plot. These also highlight the fact that certain ideas in the Bible are still valid in our every day lives. Peter Lisca has noted that the novel reflects the three-part division of the Old Testament exodus account, which includes captivity, journey, and the Promised Land. Steinbeck’s reference from the Bible reflects his personal analysis about religion and allows him to reinforce his theme of migrant families emerging to form a community to work together.

Messy Spirituality and the Core Book Reviews The books Messy Spirituality and the Core have spoken words of truth that I often don’t hear or in some cases, hear all too often. What I mean by that is the words God used through both of Mike Yaconelli’s books were words that I deal with. Words not only that I deal with, but at the same time words that adolescents hear and feel on a consistent basis. Both books offered advice to me personally and at the same time adolescents. Reading through both, I felt a more personal connection driven towards me when reading “Messy Spirituality” and an adolescent, big-picture connection when reading “The Core”.
After becoming emotionally scarred, he continued to write books. One of which books called Into Thin Air was inspired by his experience. Jon Krakauer commonly writes about "Mormon fundamentalism while examining his own religious beliefs and religious fundamentalism."

In what way(s) did you resonate with the authors’ research and conclusions?

I researched the book a little more and came across the website by the authors for the book, www.thearda.com. The information was broken a little easier for me to understand and apply.

I have been to a few churches out here in Los Angeles and many Churches involve music, clothing and other things that separate them from others. Also Native Americans use visual rituals to talk to their ancestors, and this makes them similar to other religions like Catholics who use Saints as vessels to speak to God. All in all religion is a beautiful thing and this is what keeps some of us sane, because without it many of us will go crazy because we don’t have a set of rules we need to follow. Religion for me is a very hard subject to talk about because I have seen what religion ideals make you do. I have had friends who I consider brothers died in Iraq because of suicide bombers and I have had friends ridicule and harassed because they are Muslim.
