Hans Christian Andersen and The Lord’s Prayer

I have been reading a list of “classic literature” for a couple years. During these books I can’t help but note the different ways they talk about God or the Bible. That kind of stuff stands out to me.

In reading “The Snow Queen” in Andersen’s Fairy Tales, I saw this amusing sentence, perhaps you can relate to the distressed little boy:

“He was scared stiff; he wanted to say the Lord’s Prayer, but the only thing he could remember was The Big Multiplication Table.”
