Through his character Robinson Crusoe, Daniel Dofoe paints a portrait of a man who seems far too real to be a fiction. A man bent on living his life on his own terms and running from the very God who is pursing him. Brought to the end of himself, Robinson finds himself face to face with the reality of the crushing weight of sin.
This piece aims to reflect on that pivotal moment in Robinson's life when he ultimately bows the knee and gives in, and finds freedom in the midst of captivity.
