Stephen Kumalo and Theophilus Msimangu are pastors, and through their characters, Paton illustrates the importance of simple Christian values. Neither man preaches during the novel, but both men embrace the values of kindness and understanding, as well as exhibit them in their own lives. Over the course of the novel, kindness becomes a major theme. People are changed by kindness. Small kindnesses have the ability to tranform lives, they have the power to open doors...... and faith gives sustenance and inner strength.
