Publishers Description

Bestselling author of The Gospel According to Peanuts Robert Short reveals what man's best friend can teach us about life. Dogs do much more than just keep us company and give us love and attention--they are models for how we can live better lives as humans. From humility and obedience to singleness of purpose and unconditional love, Short shows us how we can learn from the remarkable qualities of dogs. Using examples from more than forty classic comic strips, including Peanuts, Blondie, Family Circus, Luann, Mother Goose & Grimm, Fred Basset, and more, as well as charming photographs of real dogs, The Gospel According to Dogs is a delight-fully entertaining book for dog lovers, comic enthusiasts, and anyone looking for reassuring wisdom for the good life.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to Dogs: What Our Four-Legged Saints Can Teach Us?

What? You don't think Faith is for the Dogs? Well, laugh & learn with Robert Short and you'll sit up and beg for more!  Feb 26, 2008
You've just got to smile at this brainstorm by the godfather of the "Gospel According to ..." genre, Robert L. Short. Bob's the guy who published the original "The Gospel According to Peanuts" in the mid 1960s -- and wound up selling more than 10 million copies as this somewhat shocking idea (at the time) got people chuckling and nodding their heads.

Well, like me -- and millions of other Americans -- Bob's a dog lover and devotes this delightful little book to his affection for humor, faith and our faithful furry friends.

Just as we've come to expect from his 2 different "Peanuts" books, Bob illustrates this volume with plenty of comics that are sure to provoke at least a broad smile. And, frankly, that's precisely what Bob's about in these books -- trying to recapture some of the joy that's supposed to be at the core of our faith. That's what C.S. Lewis preached, at his best, didn't he? And that's what our gospel proclaims -- good news.

Among other things I didn't know before reading this little book is that Martin Luther -- the Reformation-era Martin Luther -- loved dogs.

While this small yellow paperback looks like a little gift or novelty book -- I have a sneaking suspicion that a cool small-group series could be built around this book.
