And Toto, Too
"The Wizard of Oz" As A Spiritual Adventure

By Nathan G. Castle, O.P.

About the Book

And Toto, Too: "The Wizard of Oz" as a Spiritual Adventure gives the familiar and much-loved film, The Wizard of Oz a spiritual makeover. Nathan G. Castle, O.P. weaves his own story into the timeless classic with warmth and a delightful sense of humor. The book's approach is slightly unconventional and perhaps a touch irreverent, given that the author is a Catholic priest who bravely shares his belief that God loves everybody wildly, extravagantly, beyond belief—and beyond belief systems. And that the canine face of God is totally Toto.
