Overview

Mary Rowlandson, a Minister�s wife in New England as it says underwent a cruel and inhumane treatment from the Indians that took her captive. This is a story of sorrow and pain, of faith and truth, of tears and reflections, and of grief and hopes. The Indians poured their wrath and anger against this helpless small community demonstrating to them what kind of human beings they were; probably all of them were not alike, but in reality we have little enthusiasm to lift up any merciful praise towards those Indians when reading this painful story.

In the midst of it all, miraculously, one of these salvages struck her as a lost star or beam of light by offering her a Bible he had from the Medfield fight, where they committed sacking and looting. He took it from his basket and gave it to Mary. She interpreted it as a gift from her merciful God in the middle of this valley of darkness.

As the chosen ones to 'purify' the Gospel, the puritans saw in this narrative an opportunity to show off the infinite mercy of our Creator even to the Native-Americans; coming undoubtedly inside a 'puritan vessel' full of hope, perseverance and faith that indeed redeems.
