The Sovereignty and Goodness of God is captivity narrative, and obviously the religious themes throughout are the driving force of the story. This sort of Puritanism lends itself very well to the idea of liberation from captivity precisely because God as an ultimately sovereign ruler of his creation is someone to which it is always possible to appeal. In this way, (Christian) human beings are always free!
