    A book written to relate the Christian attitude on cultural matters with societies perspective, “A Sneaking Suspicion”. Written by John Dickson, a theological historian from Sydney’s suburbs attempts to contrast cultural experiences - including relationships, sex, meaning - with the Christian view inspired by Jesus death as our substitute. These areas are the major focal points throughout the book and are addressed in three main sections. The first called “Some Sneaking Suspicions” expresses how sex and beauty can be in conjunction with God’s rules and meaning for our life. However, “Some Nagging Doubts”, the second chapter, concludes having addressed many objections one may have with the Christian faith; more popular doubts being suffering and science. In contrast, the third chapter moves into a gospel centred preach where John proclaims “The Guts of it All” presented in the bible. Further, the book culminates with the application: a chance to turn to Jesus as a result of his sacrifice for us. Therefore, we can see that as the book progresses, we see Dickson draw links between societal topics and its impact on one’s life through a Christian frame of mind.…

    Kino’s neighbors were jealous of Kino and one night someone tried to steal the pearl by attacking Kino. Kino fought back and “felt his knife go home,” killing the man (59). Then Kino, with Juana and Coyotito, fled the village, but trackers were sent to find them and to bring Kino to justice. Thus, the pearl resulted in Kino being a wanted criminal and forced him to flee his home. Eventually, the trackers caught up with Kino and his family and, hearing Coyotito cry, thinking it was a coyote pup, fired a shot into the cave that killed Coyotito. Kino killed each of the trackers and returned to village with Juana and his dead son and the pearl, which was “gray, like a malignant growth” (89). Kino finally sees the pearl as “distorted and insane” and…
