This essay is the third-part of A Dialogue Commemorating the Fiftieth Anniversary of to Kill a Mockingbird's Publication between Professors Lance McMillian and Judy Cornett, featured in the Tennessee Law Review. In this piece, Professor McMillian answers three questions posed to him by Professor Cornett: (1) Is Atticus Finch really a Christian in any meaningful sense?, (2) Is Atticus Finch's Christian faith the “but for” impetus behind his actions?, and (3) Should Atticus Finch be judged a hero at all under today's standards?
