Browning deplores the contemporary trend of depicting faith and belief as civilization and science develop, and human reason has priority. He gives his own message to his contemporaries who are marvelling at positivism, scientific discovery, and material prosperity. At that time, the Victorian era and world view responded to the real demands of the people of the time, and ignored the invisible yet eternal world of reality, the divine world and providence. While staring at pitching of the British people's view of life values due to the rise of economic prosperity and the evolutionary theory, the poet experiences the wonder of God, which never shakes, and leaves it as a poem. It is a dramatic monologue, telling Lazarus' resurrection owing to Jesus Christ: "An Epistle." This poem is the Christian apologetics in Victorian era. In this poem, Browning presents Karshish, an Arab in the background of Palestine at the late 60s AD, but he wants to tell a contemporary story of its own. He claims strongly that despite scientific and medical advances, mankind can not go against God's creation and providence. And he chants God does not disappear or shrink for a moment because of positivism and higher criticism, but as it has been from the beginning, he also recites, God still and forever exists.
