Excerpt from New England Magazine, Vol. 21: An Illustrated Monthly; September, 1896-February, 1897
Some word should be said of Mrs. Stowe's religious position. In her books the religious trend of her mind is always apparent, for she could not disguise the fact of the depth and earnestness of her religious convie tions. She assumes that religion is natural to man, that by all the deeper and larger instincts of his nature he feels himself called to believe in God and to hope for immortality. This faith she does not argue about, in no way discusses it, simply assumes its reality. Yet it is not difficult to see what is her own attitude or to dis cover what is her own position with reference to the great faiths of man kind. She was a Christian of the un dogmatic type, sincere, earnest and devoted. Hers was the Christianity of the heart and of faithful living. She was contented to accept the great and simple faith of all Christian men and women as something. Known through. Moral and spiritual experi ence, and so proven.
