theories of atonement: "all i know is it gives us a better picture"

Years ago, Robert Short wrote "The Gospel According to Peanuts" and "The Parables of Peanuts."
A lot of theological reflection in the books, actually.
(Click the titles for previews).

Here are two of my favorite Peanuts cartoons reflected on, I often use the first in classes after someone has answered a question completely and profoundly.  I use the second to talk about theories of the atonement (although with technology shift since the cartoon was released, there will be young people who don't fully  get the reference).
