Chapter 5 Pre-Reading discussion What is faith? How has the family’s faith been tested? Would you characterize this family as a family that has strong faith? Justify your answer.
Faith Let’s take notes He keeps searching for Sounder when he is lost and has faith the dog will return; in a like manner, he keeps searching for his father when his whereabouts are unknown and has faith that he also will return. The boy also believes there is a better life than the one in the run-down shanty, and he hopes to someday find it. Like the boy, Sounder possesses the key “human” ingredients of faith, loyalty, dignity, courage, and love. He first shows his loyalty when he tries to attack the sheriff, who is arresting his master; when the boy tries to hold Sounder back, as ordered by the deputy, the dog has the courage to break loose and follow the wagon that is carrying Father away. For his faithfulness, he is shot. With dignity, he pulls himself out of the bloody dirt and goes away into the woods to heal himself. Love for his master helps him to heal and find his way back home; however, when he finds that Father is still not present, he loyally and listlessly waits for his return.
