Robert Short's The Gospel According To Peanuts is a timeless classic of religious insight based on the enduring legacy of the late Charles Shultz, creator of the Peanuts newspaper comic strip. Short examines the religious content of Schultz's beloved little universe of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Snoopy, and the rest to reveal, from a Christian perspective, the prophetic and theologic meanings manifested by these charming and universally known cartoon characters that became pop culture icons the whole world over. The Gospel According To Peanuts is highly recommended reading all Schultz fans and anyone who has ever noted the enduring wisdom embedded and embraced by the little folks who inhabited his daily and Sunday cartoon stories.
Whether you are a "Peanuts" comic strip fan or someone who believes in the Gospel "The Gospel According To Peanuts" is a very interesting and thought provoking book to read. Written by Robert Short a Presbyterian minister way back in 1965 he uses classic strips from the beloved comic strip to help show the meanings behind the stories in the Gospels. He even shows that every character in the strip from Charlie Brown to Lucy to the most famous beagle of all time can be used to represent major people from biblical times. Lucy for example represents original sin while Snoopy can be used to represent Christ or at least the perfect Christian.

This book is a view of Christianity and Christians as compared with the wonderful characters of Charles Schultz famous cartoons. Robert Short uses various Peanuts strips to illustrate the similarity with the lessons of the Gospels and Leters of the New Testment and the message from the strips.

Using the Peanuts characters has allowed the author to update the messages of the New Testament so that a modern person can relate better to the circumstances described. Each of the chapters focuses on a message from the New Testament and then uses the various situations in the strips to back up the discussion.

I decided to read this book after several readings of a very dog-eared copy of "Parables of Peanuts" that I have had since my childhood. The message in Gospel is a lighter read, but no less entertaining and enlighting. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a new way to look at the Gospels and/or someone who loves Peanuts (like I do) and wants a new... Read more
