Dr Seuss

Sovereignty is sovereignty

I continue to hold that one of the most amazing theology books of our time regarding the sovereignty of God is Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss.

I love the perspective reminder. A God who is completely outside of, beyond, and other than our realm of perspective is always going to seem unreal.

I love the reminder that we are exponentially smaller than the God who holds us.

I love the reminder of a God who though his people are carried away by lesser things, he still cries out our names.

I love the reminder that the god people doubt is not big enough.


What other unlikely books would you place on the greatest theology books...and why?
