What is the story The Cay by Theodore Taylor about?

Answer 1:

It's about one boy and one man who gets stuck on a raft. They end up in a small island. They might survive on the Caribbean Sea.

Answer 2:

The Cay is about a boy named Phillip who is prejudiced and has strong feelings against black people. But later, he gets stuck in the middle of the sea, and his head injury has made him blind. His only companion to depend on is a black man named Timothy. As Timothy helps Phillip out, Phillip begins to bond to him and start to lose his feelings of prejudice toward black people.

It says in the back of the book:

Phillip is excited when the Germans invade the small island of Curacao. War has always been a game to him, and he's eager to glimpse it firsthand - until the freighter he and his mother are traveling on to the United States is torpedoed.

When Phillip comes to, he is on a small raft in the middle of the sea. Besides Stew Cat, his only companion is an old West Indian, Timothy. Phillip remembers his mother's warning about black people: "They are different, and they live differently."

By the time the castaways arrive on a small island, Phillip's head injury has made him blind and dependent on Timothy. This is the story of their struggle to survive, and of Phillip's effort to adjust to his blindness and to understand the dignified, wise, and loving old man who is his companion.

What did the Ethiopian Eunich learn from Phillip?

At Acts 8:26-36, God's holy spirit told Phillip to run alongside the Ethiopian Eunuch's chariot. [The Eunuch was a person of power in Queen Candace's court and was a Jewish proselyte, (he was a non-Jewish worshiper of Jehovah God). He'd gone to Jerusalem to worship at the temple and was returning home.] Philip ran alongside and heard him reading aloud Isaiah the prophet, and he said: "Do you actually know what you are reading?" The Eunuch said: "Really, how could I ever do so, unless someone guided me?"And he entreated Philip to get on and sit down with him". In answer the eunuch said to Philip: "I beg you, about whom does the prophet say this? About himself or about some other man?" Philip opened his mouth and, starting with this Scripture, he declared to him the good news about Jesus". (Isaiah prophesied 'Christ would remain silent before those who would put him to death and that he would die a painful death''. Isaiah 53:3-8). This Ethiopian Eunuch only knew the Old Testament. He needed to be taught how Christ Jesus fulfilled the prophecies of the 'Messiah' and had given his life for mankind. The New Testament hadn't even been written down yet, so all of Jesus Christ's disciples had been taught to preach door-to-doorand house to house, (Matthew 24:14, Matthew 28:19&20 and Acts 20:20), or 'road to road'as Phillip did then and as all faithful Christians do today. Everyone on Earth must have the chance to hear the good news about God's Kingdom, with Christ as our King, and to gain everlasting life!!
