In The Bronze Bow, what began to make Daniel's life seem less burdensome?

Expert Answers

Even though The Bronze Bow is set in the first century of the modern era, the easing of Daniel's burdens strongly parallel the maturation of any young person throughout any time in history.  The main thing he has to conquer is fear and many times throughout the story, he does this only to meet a fresh set of circumstances.  While the events of this story are dire, it is not unlike all young people's challenges.

Perhaps the most most specific time when we see an ease of the burdens is when Daniel begans to question the motives of the mountain outlaws and starts to turn away from them.  Ultimately, he embraces the teachings of Jesus which allows hime to free himself of hate and resentment.
