“What a good premise for a book: an eight-year-old precocious child carrying on a theological conversation with her 73-year-old grandfather–not just any grandfather but a noted ‘Reverend Canon Professor . . .’ who has edited a volume on Christian dogmatics. . . . There is something here for all Christians–or skeptics–from adolescents to grandparents, who read for insight as well as whimsy.”
—Evelyn Bence, FaithfulReader.com
