A few weeks ago Hemant posted about a German children’s book, which he termed “the god delusion for kids“. A couple of days ago he posted that the book is now available in English for free. The pictures can be viewed separately here.
The book tells the story of how piglet and hedgehog find a poster which says “He who knows not God, is missing something!”. So piglet and hedgehog go on a journey to find God and in the process talk to a rabbi, a bishop and a mufti. In the end they decide they weren’t missing anything in their lives after all.
The books aims are to make children realise they are not missing out on anything without religion and God, and that respect has to be earned, not assumed.
Some people have stated the book badly caricatures the three religions and their leaders. Personally I thought it was hilarious and had some very valid messages.
Happy reading, let me know what you think.
