Library Journal Review

Retired United Methodist minister Kemp has written a brief and rather engaging work that asserts the Christian lessons to be found in the whimsical writings of Theodore Geisel (Dr. Seuss)-the hope for redemption, as seen in the Grinch; the need for commitment, as seen in the journey "on beyond Zebra"; the necessity of acting on the behalf of others, as seen in Horton and the Whos; and so forth. Given Geisel's liberalism and his dedication to the idea of conveying humane (not so much non-Christian as post-Christian) values without adhering to or conveying doctrine, it is a bit odd to see theology re-injected into his works. Even so, many readers should be charmed by Kemp's reflections. A counterpart to Ralph Wood's The Gospel According to Tolkien or Mark Pinsky's The Gospel According to the Simpsons, this book is for most collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
