This is a basic guide to the ethics of Christianity, and quite useful. the cartoons are entertaining, and the matter well adapted to the needs of the standard American. ( )

Read this in high school. Don't remember much about it. I didn't keep it so I think I thought it was "just okay". ( )

Great connect here between the spiritual and the lighthearted. ( )

Beware of Robert L. Short's book because he is not preaching the true gospel. He is an universalism. That is not the true gospel. I do love Peanuts as the comics strip, but I don't like Robert L. Short's books.

Epigraph
Dedication
To My Parents - who, I am sure, in struggling to cultivate their own little patch of peanuts, have acquired real appreciation for the full meaning of 'Good grief!"
First words
"How shall we sing the Lord's song in a foreign land?" (Ps. 137:4) is a question the Church, always finding itself in but not of the world, urgently needs to reconsider today.
