Publisher's Description

While Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the Peanuts gang have enjoyed the kind of success most cartoon characters can only dream about--becoming pop culture icons of the highest order and entering the global consciousness practically as family members--Robert Short's The Gospel According to Peanuts also has found a place in the hearts of many readers, with sales now totaling more than ten million copies. This anniversary edition features a new cover, a new interior design, and a new foreword by Martin E. Marty. Whether coming to the book for the first time or taking a second look, a delightful experience awaits in this modern-day guide to the Christian faith, fully illustrated with Peanuts.

Author Bio

Robert L. Short is perhaps best known for his first book, The Gospel according to Peanuts, which was lauded by The New York Times Book Review as "a 'perilous experiment' that comes off and earned the "admiration and respect of Peanuts creator Charles M. Schulz. An ordained Presbyterian minister, he regularly traveled and preached throughout the country, presenting programs in Christian faith and the arts at churches and colleges. His other books include Something to Believe In, The Gospel According to Dogs, and The Parables of Dr. Seuss.

    I bought a couple of these based on the front cover and the other reviews. I love the biblical counsel and am amazed at how perfectly the accompanying Peanuts comic goes with it! I am buying several more to give away -- including to my pastor.

    Although I will surely enjoy this book myself, I was looking for a more children friendly book, written in simpler terms for explaining the Gospel. Although I will not be able to use this text for this purpose, I will enjoy it myself in my own study.

    A Classic book with millions sold; it lives as fresh as in its release in 1965. The quality of this "soft back" surpasses my "original hard back!" It is larger, clear reading with improved and enlarged fonts; and of course the Peanuts strips! A book for all ages and a perfect Gift for anyone. Its ease to read, the concepts offered to the reader; equal (if not surpass) any "Theological Conception AL." If you remember it; "revisit the Peanut gang." If you haven't; it would be a "loss not to!" Enjoy!

    Fantastically relevant to our current culture. Used it as a basis to write a kids' series at church and it communicated the Gospel with amazing clarity with lots of kids recieving Christ! Strongly recommend it!
