Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century and the second best-selling book of that century, following the Bible. It is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s. In 1855, three years after it was published, it was called "the most popular novel of our day." A thrilling and important piece of American literature!

"To have faith like Uncle Tom" should be the acceptable term. Such a racist comment it has become "being an uncle Tom" that also is an unacceptable assumption. Tom wasn't bowing to the white man, he was putting his faith in the Lord Jesus and his perfect teachings. Tom was the perfect example of a disciple to Jesus. I will try to live like Uncle Tom. It should be WWUTD.
