All who are led by God’s Spirit are God’s sons and daughters. 15 You didn’t receive a spirit of slavery to lead you back again into fear, but you received a Spirit that shows you are adopted as his children. With this Spirit, we cry, “ Abba, Father. ” 16 The same Spirit agrees with our spirit, that we are God’s children. 17 But if we are children, we are also heirs. We are God’s heirs and fellow heirs with Christ, if we really suffer with him so that we can also be glorified with him.
This breezy and engaging book will delight the Dr. Seuss fan in all of us! Robert Short looks at spirituality in the stories of children’s book author and illustrator Theodore “Dr. Seuss” Geisel arguing that Geisel was “a first-class Christian thinker.” The book explores Green Eggs and Ham, Horton Hears a Who, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, and others.
Short writes in the Introduction, “When I first became acquainted with his books and was struck by the many parallels I saw between his work and what is said in the Bible and by Christian faith, I considered these similarities to be merely ‘happy accidents.’ Today I still see these parallels as ‘happy,’ but I’m now convinced that they are not merely ‘accidents.’”
