Deerslayer, nevertheless, cannot always explain and justify the Christian teachings, especially to  Chingachgook. When his Indian friends press him too hard on any issue, Deerslayer resorts to the  romantic idea that these problems must be "felt" rather than "reasoned about." On several  occasions, Chingachgook's telling arguments represent a more liberal and more modern approach  — that of Cooper — to the dogmatic ideas of the preachers and missionaries. Chingachgook, though  untrained in rhetoric and theology, conducts himself as skillfully as would an educated representative  of the Christian civilization so questioned by Cooper. Also, Chingachgook, as noted in other  Chapters, has all the dignity of a Roman senator, wrapping himself in his toga (or blanket) upon  Deerslayer's departure.

    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.
