Product Description

Review

‘Here is a book which is a pearl of great price. It will mean everything. Truth, beauty, and goodness, to those who understand… a heavenly book, rooted in earth.’
The Guardian

‘Do not be deceived by the simplicity: these stories and insights were matured for decades through Fynn’s own thinking, imagining and suffering to give us this superb, intoxicating spirit.’
Professor David F. Ford, Regius Professor of Divinity, University of Cambridge

About the Author

The identity of Fynn remains mysterious.
Vernon Sproxton, in his foreword to Mister God, This Is Anna writes ‘He is who he was. He is pretending to be nobody other than himself. But a very real and permanent part of his being is – Anna.’

Format: Paperback
In 1973, when I was twelve years old, I once entered the kitchen while my mother was cooking and my little sister of four years was playing on the kitchen floor. Just when I entered the room my sister suddenly stopped playing with her toys and looked up to my mother and said: "Mum, God can not think, can he? My mother looked at my sister with surprise and said with some confusion in her voice: "Well... I don't know. Why can God not think?" And my little sister answered: "God never has to. He knows eveything!" And that said it all, according to the fact that she continued playing with her toys on the kitchen floor. My mother and I smiled to each other. Later I realized the remark of my sister was bulls eye. Of course God can not think because he knows everything!
This moment, when I entered the kitchen and heard my sister's opinion of God's unability to think I'll never forget and I remembered it even more vividly when reading about Anna.
Anna is the true story about a little girl of five years who still seem to remember her spiritual home. Like a little, precious chatterbox she makes observations about life, God and things as they are in a very touching and striking way. For me - as a practisioner having a Buddhist background - some of Anna's remarks are pure Buddhism. "God is empty" she says and does "not reflect anything".
Many reviewed the book "Mister God, This is Anna" (ISBN 0345327225) and there is not much more to add. Only this: some people who read the book do not believe a little girl like Anna could exist. In that case they really never met my little sister.
Fortunelately via this book you have the chance to meet Anna, in all her openess and honesty and with all her insights. Don't miss this beautiful opportunity.

Format: Paperback
Some books make you go "Ah!" with inspiration and epiphany; a book containing one line that provokes such a response deserves a place on the bookshelf. This 30th anniversary compilation of all of Fynn's three books has many such "Ah!" moments.

I am touched by Anna's genuine faith, eyes to see the world and God, her poem "When I shall die" and Fynn's love for her. As a scientist, I also enjoy the way she seeks to understand science and math (I have personally tried one of her fun mini experiments - the one that uses and expanding mirror to increase the number of edges on a shape).

No wonder the bible says, let the little children come. This child Anna sees some things better than adults.
Wonderful illustrations by Papas. I'm currently buying my third copy.

A book to read and reread. Sometimes not so easy to understand but it requires some thinking to catch the amazing views of Anna on her environment , the people and the world. I enjoyed it very much after reading "Anna's book" years ago.

This is an absolutely stunning, breath-taking bok! Whether you believe in God or not, there will be things in this book that will make you question the possibility of God. Anna`s outlook on life and her total faith in Mister God will move even the hardest of hearts. Following her, and Fynn, in her discoveries of all things concerning God will make you laugh, smile and cry. It`s a beautifully told tale of a beautiful friendship and a story about how a little girl with a huge heart and bigger belief changed so many lives.
Wise beyond her years and totally disarming, Anna will creep into your heart and captivate you long after you finish this book.
An absolute must read!
