What happens when one of the world's most respected theologians talks theology with his eight-year-old granddaughter? In Conversations with Poppi about God,
you are invited to listen in.
The conversations begin one night when Robert Jenson and his granddaughter, Solveig Lucia Gold, sit talking in front of the fireplace long past Solveig's bedtime. In their unscripted, spontaneous talks, Solveig questions Poppi about creation, the Trinity, church seasons, liturgy, and other mysteries of faith and life. Eventually, they cover everything from the profound to the ordinary. She asks:
- What does God look like?
- How can God pick who goes to heaven and hell?
- What is the Holy Spirit?
- How did Santa become part of Christmas?
- Well . . . what about how everybody sips from the same glass during Communion even though many people have germs and things?
The result is a charming and enlightening book that reminds us all we have a lot to learn from theologians and from children. Now available in paperback, Conversations with Poppi will appeal to parents, grandparents, pastors, teachers, and anyone looking for a refreshing perspective on the mysteries of Christianity.
