Raised by a mother who inspired his imagination with biblical stories, Herman Melville shipped out as a cabin boy on a whaling ship and later sailed the South Seas with the Navy.

He fell among Typee cannibals in the Marquesas Islands.

Rescued, he wrote in an account:

"These disclosures will...lead to...ultimate benefit to the cause of Christianity in the Sandwich Islands."

In his classic novel, Moby Dick, Herman Melville wrote:

"With this sin of disobedience...Jonah flouts at God...He thinks that a ship made by men will carry him into countries where God does not reign."

In 1983, The U.S. District Court stated in Crockett v. Sorenson:

"Better known works which rely on allusions from the Bible include Milton's Paradise Lost...Shakespeare...and Melville's Moby Dick...

Secular education...demands that the student have a good knowledge of the Bible."
