  • Africans Were Kidnapped And Taken Aboard Ships To Be Transported To Various Places - 446 words
    1. Africans were kidnapped and taken aboard ships to be transported to various places. From reading Equianos memoir I gathered that the slaves were terrified. They had never seen whites before, nor did they speak the language of their captors, so they had no idea of their destiny. Equiano tells us the harsh conditions aboard the ship. The slaves were shackled together. Equiano almost makes the reader hear the clanking of the chains and the gasps for clean air.

When they arrived to their destination the slaves were auctioned off as if they we ...

Wills argues that through his speech Lincoln remade the American history in that Americans would interpret the Civil War, and the Constitution, ...

  • A Reaction To Clive Pontings A Green History Of The World - 1,810 words
    A Reaction To Clive PontingS A Green History Of The World A Green History of the World has been very educational reading and has given me a new prospective on the environment. While I do disagree with some of Clive Pointings views I have learned a lot from his work. A Green History of the World was a very in-depth look at the past and the future of our environment. Pointing raised my consciousness regarding the trials we face as inhabitants of this great planet and left me with some food for thought. After reading Chapter One I found myself entranced by the mystery of Easter Island and excited about the information A Green History of the World had to offer. I had virtually no understanding o ...

  • A Style Consistent With The Message - 487 words
    A Style Consistent With The Message Redemption of the spirit and soul, Eternity, Heaven, and Hell have always been solemn, undisclosed, and indirect subjects. Such important matters of life deserve a more appropriate approach. These subjects need to be clearly understood and firmly discussed.

In "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God," Jonathan Edwards extensively enhances the urgency of turning lives over to God through a provocative style filled with vivid illustrations and elaborate imagery. One recognizes that the style of this work is extremely aggressive and graphic. Edward's word choice is quite n ...
