To become a man, one must choose to be loyal; one must choose to be loving; one must choose to be courageous. This is why Adam can, in full right, call himself a man. We have searched and prodded and found nothing unbiblical with the theme. But we did find that the Bible supports the idea that boys may enter into responsible manhood when they are

required to be loyal, loving, and courageous. Because of this find, we now joyfully declare that April Morningis a biblical book. Given that the book is biblical, we naturally assume that Howard Fast was a Christian. In reality, there is no real way to know. Only God can see what is in a man’s heart, but as far as what men can see, it does not appear that Howard Fast was a Christian. Howard Fast was born in New York City, NY in the year 1914. For the next fifty years, Howard Fast was an open Communist and was even awarded the Stalin International Peace Prize, which was the Soviet Union’s version of the Nobel Peace Prize. However, he left the Communist and Socialist parties by 1960 after he realized what they stood for. He said, “I was part of a generation that believed in socialism and finally found that belief corroded and destroyed.”14A year later, in 1961, he published April Morning. Perhaps upon leaving the socialists he became a Christian. Perhaps he simply realized that the best definition of a man is found in the Bible. Either way we’ll probably never know what it was that changed his mind, since he died in 2003. As for the book itself, it was a great read. It was easy to read and would be very fun for other patriotic enthusiasts. Its keenness impressed me. Its historical accuracies were folded neatlyinto the plot. Its literary smoothness ran collectively over plot. This book is of premium quality and unequaled style. My hope is that others will read it with as much fervor as I have.April Morning, by Howard Fast, is probably a miracle. Howard Fast may or may not havebeen a Christian, but God gave His own contribution anyways, which is why we found a Biblicaltheme. This is always a good realization to keep in mind, so that when the question arises, “Whatdefines a man?” you’ll know that Adam Cooper is the answer.

    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.
