    I would have to say that this Finny character is one of my favorites from 1831. Almost all references to religion in the other books we have read for the class have been somewhat negative. whether it is the Early colonialists thanking God for clearing away the Indians or the idea of manifesting some Divine right to take land. I think that the fact that Finny preaches about the power of religion to save (like his sermon about the man walking towards a giant canyon in the book: 1831) shows the positive influence religion could have had on history.
