Anne of Green Gables is filled with rich spiritual themes and truths. Anne’s story provides a gentle allegory for God’s redemptive, adoptive plans for each of us. Not only is she adopted, as we are adopted into God’s family when we place our trust in Jesus as our Savior, but she grows and flourishes in a loving family, just as we do as part of the Body of Christ.
Even Anne’s arrival at Green Gables—by a “queer mistake”—is later recognized as a divine appointment. Matthew says, “She’s been a blessing to us, and there never was a luckier mistake than what Mrs. Spencer made—if it was luck. I don’t believe it was any such thing. It was Providence, because the Almighty saw we needed her, I reckon” (Chapter 34). And Marilla tells Anne, “I don’t know what I’d do if you weren’t here—if you’d never come” (Chapter 37).
Anne’s own journey of faith is central to the plot as she learns to pray, attends church, goes to prayer meetings, sings in the choir, contemplates morality and theology, and practices curbing her temper. Surrounded by wholesome friends, mentors, and role models, Anne’s faith blossoms and her character develops.
