Uncle Tom's Cabin

How is the Quaker settlement presented? What qualities emerge in the Hallidays and other friends? In what ways does Stowe use the group to raise issues between man's laws and God's?

The Quaker settlement is presented as a refuge of enlightenment. They are good people who are kind and protective. The Quakers provide a juxtaposition between the evil interpretations of the Bible by slave owning whites and the more enlightened interpretation of the Bible by Quaker standards. This book then doesn't become a condemnation of Christianity but rather a condemnation of people who twist and pervert the Word for their own gain.
