In the same vein as the parables of Jesus, Short makes use of dozens of Peanuts comic strips to shed light on a clear and understandable theology, finding many illustrative parallels in the lives of the Peanuts gang. Charlie Brown, in a very real sense, represents Everyman, a jolly good fellow who is always looking for something to improve a life that is, by and large, rather miserable - he never wins, just as mankind, on its own, never wins. Charlie Brown is also prone to moments of great anxiety, a fear of nothingness and emptiness.Read more ›
Though, I am not Christian, I believe that the messages about sin, life, love, envy and the other streams of emotions that these little characters, wise beyond their years, go through, as children, together, really speak volumes about the struggle of humankind. Every character is rich with symbolism about the plight of humankind, and, even Snoopy the Dog struggles with the same level of self doubt, anger, resentment and discouragement that his human counterparts must endure as part of the universal struggle. Great book!!! It has definitely stood the test of time. I highly reccomend it.
