Excerpt from Mister God, This is Anna

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, read the rules at A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along!

I picked up an old favourite this week, to share some quotes with a class I was teaching. Mister God, This is Anna by Flynn. It’s a beautiful inspirational book; I’ve never read anything like it. If you want to think differently about God and your relationship to him, this book will be on your mind for years to come.

‘Why did Mister God rest on the seventh day?’ she began.

‘I suppose he was a bit flaked out after six days’ hard work,’ I answered.

‘He didn’t rest because he was tired though.’
Flynn, Mister God, This is Anna

If you love Mister God, This is Anna as much as I do, I have a special treat for you. I have prepared five quotes from the book on lovely, high-resolution backgrounds suitable for computer wallpaper or printing and framing. Click to download.

Anna was four years old when Fynn, then only 16 himself, found her wandering round London’s Docklands one foggy night in the 1930s. Badly neglected and abandoned by her parents, he took her home to be cared for by his own family.

The impact of this extraordinary child on Fynn, his friends and the people in their neighbourhood was to be immense. Nobody who met Anna could remain the same: this intelligent, lively, precocious chatterbox had an outlook on life which completely undercut adult pretensions and illusions.

Anna’s influence continues today. Anyone dipping into her thought-processes falls under the spell of her luminous innocence, wisdom and intimate relationship with ‘Mister God’.
