From the Paper:

'What does it mean to be a Christian? Jane Fonda (actress), Gary Busey (Academy Award actor), George Foreman (heavy weight world boxing champion), and President Bush will define the meaning of Christianity differently (Famous `Born Again' Christians). Often people struggle to describe what it means to be a Christian. Maya Angelou in her poem, "Christians," describes what it is like to be a Christian. An analysis of "Christians" will show how the author used literary elements to give meaning to the poem.
