Sloan, Gary. “A Farewell to Arms and the Sunday-School Jesus.” Studies in the Novel 25 (1993): 449-56.

Annotation

Reading Christ as a highly ethical and selfless example of the code hero, Sloan examines ironic comparisons between Frederic Henry and Christ. Notes Frederic’s inefficacy as a Christlike figure, especially in his relationship with Catherine. Rather, Sloan argues for Rinaldi as Frederic’s real counterpart in the novel.
