QUESTIONS ”SALVATION” THE FACTS 1. What is Hughes’ purpose in recalling this event? To inform the readers of this kind of church service. 2. The author’s portrayal of the revival meeting is extremely realistic. What rhetorical techniques make it so? The author gave a lot of imagery to provide us with the details. 3. What is a religious revival? How does it differ from a regular church service? A religious revival is a service at a church dedicated to just save people who aren’t saved yet. This kind of service is more intense. 4. What biblical metaphor is Hughes alluding to when he tells the reader that this was to be a special meeting “to bring the young lambs to the fold?” Young lambs are symbolizing the children at the service. The fold represents the church itself. 5. Why does Hughes spend time talking about Westley? How is young Langston different from this boy? Westley is used to compare someone to Hughes. Langston had a different set of expectations than Westley did. 6. What does the author’s waiting so long before going up to be “saved” tell you about him? Langston was expecting to see Jesus and he waited to have that happen. 7. Explain why Langston cries so much after coming home. Is there only one reason behind his tears? What does the last paragraph tell you about young Langston? What makes the story of his being saved so ironic?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
