This has been an inspiration to students aged 11 to 14 when I would read aloud extracts, for religious studies at a Presbyterian private secondary school, and for science in general social studies and reading classes.
It's also been my "go to" when wanting a spiritual boost. Interesting that early editions met with moral indignation from some christians, so the Archbishop of Canterbury wrote a Foreword for the edition.

I first read it when I became a Christian during my teen years. I probably have read it 20 times since! It is haunting to the soul, and I pray that when I "go to the other side" I will meet this incredible little girl whose young life was cut off at such an early age. Well written and a definite classic! One person found this helpful. Thought provoking book which I first downloadd many years ago, re-reading it several times, and now downloading one for a friend, who loved it.
Anna and Mister God
The true story of a little girl that comes into the life of a young man. Each of them changing the life of the other in a tender and wonderful way. Makes you think. Many " aha" moments. I consider this book the best ever written. Anna's life must have been the most extraordinary, worthwhile life a human being can engage in. Always in the presence of divinity of life, and the miracles of living it.
I had to reread some pages several times to actually touch the meaning of it, but once you get it, it changes your life.
This book was given to me by my mother in my 20's, and I am sharing it now with my 10 year old, who cannot wait to read with me at night and pushes bedtime to the limits just for a page or two more. He's God! He created rest!
Anna dies before she even reaches her eighth birthday and yet at the end of the book I put it down with a sense of feeling full, of wonder and of gratitude for the life she lived and the impact she made. Read it, and see what your eyes get opened to!
I read this book quite a while ago. It is engagingly written but it contains some very errant and very wishful thinking theology. The story centers around the relationship between a year old girl story takes place over 3 years and a year old boy who finds her on the street one night and brings her home to his mother. The girl lives with them over the next three years and the "action", in so far as it happens and not much of it does is basically just to give context for Fynn and Ann I read this book quite a while ago.
The girl lives with them over the next three years and the "action", in so far as it happens and not much of it does is basically just to give context for Fynn and Anna's conversations about life and the nature of God.
Anna sees God as her mentor and personal teacher but the church and Scripture don't factor in.
Anna teaches Fynn that God is in everyone and everyone is in God. As I mentioned, the book is fairly well written but the content is really just a hybrid form of pantheistic universalism.
The narrative plays on your emotions all the way along until the tear-jerking finish, with Anna dying in a tragic accident this is not a spoiler as the narrator makes you aware of this very near the beginning of the book. The book is often billed as a Christian book, but the true gospel is not presented in any way and much that runs directly contradictory to Scripture is, along with the emotional manipulation to sway you to believe it.
I could not recommend this book. Keine Bewertung, da die Geschichte anscheinend auf wahrer Begebenheit beruht. Ganz am Anfang steht: May 07, Charlotte rated it it was amazing. True story of a 4-year-old found on the streets of London in the 's by a year old blue collar worker with a passion for math and music and all things mechanical. The first edition included the tale of how the book's manuscript came into the hands of the publisher and of a meeting with "Fynn," the book's author; all subsequent editions have omitted it.
Anna had an intimate relationship with "Mister God," and searched for him in all things. Everything and everyone in creation was evidence for True story of a 4-year-old found on the streets of London in the 's by a year old blue collar worker with a passion for math and music and all things mechanical.
Everything and everyone in creation was evidence for Anna that God existed, that he was a gentleman, and that he loved people in ways they could not possible comprehend. She prayed for the gift of asking "real questions" and to avoid those which led nowhere. Theology has been a lifelong passion for me; Anna is my favorite theologian. Her ideas resonate with the child inside me - her fearless trust, her refusal to accept adult explanations based on fear, her spirit afire with love of God.
I have probably given away 25 or more copies of this book; people are often daunted by the explanations in the language of math and mechanics. I can only say look beyond; look at Anna's love; look at the relationship between Anna and Fynn.
Smile at their willingness to turn the world upside down and see God everywhere. Sie stirbt also sehr jung. Toll beschrieben und mit einer wunderbaren Anekdote, die zum Buch passt. Sie ist mit Mister Gott sehr verbunden und sieht in allem etwas Wunderbares. Sie entdeckt die Welt mit Kinderaugen, aber eben auch mit Augen, die viel tiefer als diese blicken. Sie sieht mehr, als jeder andere sieht und vielleicht auch mehr als man selbst je gesehen hat. Von der kleinen Anna kann jeder noch etwas lernen und auch, wenn man mit Gott und dem Christentum so gar nichts am Hut hat, wie ich beinah, dann kann man dieses Buch trotzdem lieben!
Ein Buch, das man verschenken sollte, selbst lesen und stark verinnerlichen sollte. Bitte lest es!! Und das sagt jemand, der damit nicht viel zu tun hat. Wagt euch. Es lohnt sich. Fynn und Anna haben wirklich gelebt. Michael McCamish. The book recounts the friendship formed between the author and narrator Fynn who is in his late teens or early 20s in the narrative and a foundling named Anna in London's East End, in the s.
Anna, reminiscent of a character from Dickens, is a little girl who lives on the streets until she is taken in by the narrator.
She has a unique perspective on life, a mystical spirituality, and a boundless curiosity that she shares with the author and the reader on every page. She occasionally at lea The book recounts the friendship formed between the author and narrator Fynn who is in his late teens or early 20s in the narrative and a foundling named Anna in London's East End, in the s.
She occasionally at least once per chapter lets loose with a metaphor or pronouncement that is as deep as they come, but it is hard to imagine a real five-year old spouting these profundities with such regularity. Was she a real kid or just a figment of the author's imagination? I have no idea, but I do know that her death in the final chapter this isn't a spoilerFynn tells us about her death in the first few pages felt real enough.
I loved the characters of Fynn and Anna, yet I have mixed feelings about the book itself. It was given to me as a gift by a good friend, who in turn had it recommended to him. Both recommendations came with the suggestion that the book had substantially shifted their perspectives. Yet in reading the book, I could never shake my suspicion that the author was just using sentimental tricks to make the book seem profounder than it really was. It felt like the same kind of emotional manipulation that I associate with the movie Forrest Gump.
Put it this way: Luckily, the book is an easy read and is readily available in almost every thrift store in the country, so you can read it for yourself and see what you think. Sep 28, Pasha rated it did not like it Shelves: Too religious for my callous soul. Apr 25, Cheryl rated it it was amazing Shelves: I probably read this a dozen times when I was a child, and on until I started my own family.
I wanted to be Fynn, and meet a child who would precociously open my eyes to the magic of the world. Mister God, This is Anna is a book a bout a man who finds a little girl wandering the streets, and he takes her home. This always tickles me, because: Granted it does sort of explain itself out of that hole, and the book is set in the s so it is forgivable, but still, it makes me giggle.
Then again, if you pulled that kind of thing today, would anyone notice? I think it's probably less likely than we expect. Anyway, the book is ok, I suppose. I don't think you need to be a believ Mister God, This is Anna is a book a bout a man who finds a little girl wandering the streets, and he takes her home.
I don't think you need to be a believer in God to enjoy it, you simply need to be respectful of religion, I suppose. Anna is a precocious little thing who spends her days puzzling the narrator, Fynn, with intense questions and poignant observations about the world around her. It does get a bit blahblahblah in the middle, but all-in-all it is quite a sweet story.

Unlike Fynn and Anna, I've never understood math, partly thanks to being forced into "the new math" at age 8 and missing three vital years of basic arithmetic, and then transferring to a school that had never taught the new math, realising kids my age needed the old one more. I never had a slide rule and the people around me don't even know what it is these days or a piano or even an oscilliscope, but their adventures sure sounded like fun. I read it several times, stole my parents' copy when I went off to college and moved to Europe, and finally lost it at about age 30 when I lent it to someone who left the country without returning it.
I would have returned it, but she left no adress, and this was in the days before the Internet, where I live now. Fast forward to the 90s, and I came across a copy of Anna and the Black Knight and pounced on it. Read it, but found it less about Mr God and more about math and physics. It also made me wonder; the main characters in Fynn's books all seem to have a habit of dying at the end.
And the older, more cynical me wonders still: Was Anna a real person, or a device that Fynn used to float his ruminations on reality, mathematics, spirituality and so on?
I know that in s London there were many street kids who basically floated through life--Fynn himself seems to have been one, after a fashion, as he was first a student and then a staff member of a "therapeutic community" according to Wikipedia and a website called "therealfynn.
If Anna was real, and she had lived, she would probably have been a math or science whizkid, and as that plus an idealist plus a woman, at that time in that place probably would have been a misfit and quite unhappy.

And not only the title, but also all the adventures that Anna and Fynn went on in this book. On a silent night, down by the docks, Fynn finds Anna.

Anna was only 4 when Fynn met her. He took her home to his mother who always had a heart for the poor, and without any discussion necessary, the little girl was adopted the very same minute. As Anna grows a little older, Fynn teaches her things like science, biology, and some math. In return, she teaches him about God and the angels.
Anna et Mister God
She has a very simple, very striking and unforgettable way of understanding God and the world. She asks tons of questions and at the same time answers many of them herself. Fynn described Anna like this: So far as Anna was concerned, one thing was absolutely certain.
