    Don t let the cover fool you this book is very heavy Robert L Short dives in to Peanuts throug the lens of Barth, Bonhoeffer, Kierkegaard, Luther, and of course, Schultz I have been reading this book as my metro book for the past couple of months and it has been both amazing and devotional and a total confusion nightmare at the same time Throughout the book Short makes the case for a vigorous Christian life and uses the works of a great many theologians to make his points and then uses the Peanu [...]

    I found this on my dad s bookshelf, but it s apparent that he never read it He generally marked up the books he read, either agreeing or arguing against them It s a sequel to The Gospel According to Peanuts, which I read some time ago, and only remember as vaguely pleasant I think I now know why my dad had so many copies of The Gospel According to Peanuts, which he never gave away to whomever he d intended, and only one copy of The Parables of Peanuts, which he d never read I suspect he got disi [...]

    I read Robert L Short s companion to this book, The Gospel According to Peanuts as a kid some time around my Confirmation I remember it being a pretty accessible read Either I was way smarter then or The Parables of Peanuts dives deeper into theology than Gospel did This is not an entry level book on Christianity, the Gospel of John is suited perfectly to that task In spite of the familiarity and friendliness of the Peanuts cartoons, this book is pretty deep Rev Short quotes a lot of weighty the [...]

    Re reading this again First time was around 8th grade Totally catching things that I never got as a teen or in college Makes sense now that I ve always leaned toward existentialist theology philosophy This book must have been my gateway drug.I appreciate Short his take on Schultz so much now in middle age Maybe I never got far as either a cartoonist or writer is that I ve always been too blunt direct Short s whole point is how Shultz, like Jesus used parables metaphor, fiction, humor to help au [...]

    This is a book that makes perennial theological ideas and conundrums with available answers, if any as accessible as it is to open the Sunday funnies I don t know if I agree with every conclusion, but the author certainly makes a strong case in every regard This is an immensely enjoyable read that will serve to challenge and edify the character of your faith I can t ask from a book that teaches theology, especially with the Peanuts gang in tow.

    ExcellentCharles Schultz is a mastermind and at peace with his spirituality in a humorous and abstract kind of wayM

    i learned much about the state of man from a Christian perspectived how Charles Schulz conveyed the Gospel through his loveable, sometimes miserable characters.

    I love Peanuts and seeing the deep and theological implications of Schulz s cartoon The book is made up of many quotes and has some sense of being an academic paper at points.

    Fact You can t go too far wrong with a book whose core is Peanuts cartoons.Short s theology is drawn from incredibly strong sources He quotes Bonhoeffer and Karl Barth constantly, along with and in light of Kierkegaard and Dostoevsky and French existentialists As a backdrop for Schulz, it s exactly right, even period appropriate Why, then, did the value added feel so minimal Couldn t tell you If anything, it felt to me like Short was trying too hard The comics speak for themselves plenty well, a [...]

    A profound book in many ways The book is excellent in its teaching on the deity of Christ, the good news of salvation, God s sovereignty over all things, man s depravity, and having a mature outlook on the happinesses and tragedies that are an inevitable part of everyone s life The author advocates a form of universal salvation, which is not according to my understanding of Biblical truth, but I think that may be due to the influence of Karl Barth on his theology Good food for thought throughout [...]

    It s quite profound in its delivery but nonetheless truly sucked me in Given I am not a believer, the presence of the Peanuts connection made for something I can easily relate to.

    Don t let the cover fool you, but this book s a heavy theology read I will never look at Peanuts Comics the same way again.

    Dwayne Coleman
    I tried reading this and stopped halfway through I think in this book he goes way beyond what Schulz ever intended.

    Brian Hutzell
    According to Charles M Schulz s widow, Jean Schulz, it s disturbing when someone tries to use Peanuts as a tool to push an agenda The first example of that was The Gospel According to Peanuts The plain fact is that Sparky Charles Schulz never advocated a particular view, religious or otherwise The Complete Peanuts, Vol 26 1950 to 2000 Comics and Stories, 2016 Nevertheless, he allowed author Robert L Short to publish this sequel, The Parables of Peanuts, which uses numerous Peanuts strips to advo [...]

    I love Peanuts, so I was super excited to read this book Unfortunately, the name and description led me to believe the book would be very different than it was I imagined the author would examine the comic strips of Peanuts and show the kind of biblical theological stories being told through these parables Instead, the book was primarily about the author s own theological thoughts, and Peanuts strips were picked out to illustrate his points I m also not sure I agree with some of the primary argu [...]

    It seems that very few people in this country have heard about this book.There is no doubt that Charles Schulz in his personal life was a very devout Christian.I m sure it would seem amazing to a lot of people but I think this is one of the best popular books on Christianity that has been written in this country.The author relates Peanuts cartoons to various biblical verses and also to well known Christian philiosphers like Bonhoeffer.I loved this book when I read it when I was younger.Even peop [...]

    I bought this book on line I ll be careful before doing that again I thought this was going to be Funny, warm, and just plain wonderful as the cover stated It was serious and deep with small print and theology I do not entirely agree with I thought this was a light hearted book of Schulz cartoons with a bit of editorial It was not If I had thumbed through it at a brick and mortar I would not have bought it.

    Good Ole Charlie Brown A look at the various topics of life that Charles Schultz used in His peanuts cartoons.Would make a great discussion book topics and or Devotional to those wanting to laugh, cry and go, Humm

    Didn t finish it When I got to the part where Short says everyone gets to go to heaven regardless of actually having a relationship with God or not, I stopped reading Preposterous At least the comics are funny.

    Samuel
    Very nice, but be prepared for very dry parts where u ll need to think and try to understand things

    Steve
    I read this many years ago, an excellent starter for spirituality, in it s time

    Alexis
    One of my good friend s father is the author of this book so I borrowed a copy to read Its a very interesting way of looking at the famous Peanuts cartoon.

    Meepok
    so far really insightful good observations, but need to get past the referencing loving it.

    John Bails
    Worthwhile.

    J Crossley
    Robert L Short examines how the Peanuts comic strip often shows us the parables of Jesus.

    Karla Goforth Abreu
    I did not agree with the author s theology but still found the book captivating.

    Andy Mitchell
    I wanted to love this book The author is clearly a Myers Briggs NF, like me, so he speaks my language But the final several chapters felt tedious.
