And now for an Easter collection perfect for the entire family!
Everyone who believes Easter is about more than Easter egg hunts will be grateful for this new anthology of short stories that illumine the true meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Holy Week and Easter in a way that will captivate readers of all ages. Parents and grandparents will find that children love to hear these stories read aloud, year after year.
Easter Stories includes time-honored favorites from world-famous storytellers such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Selma Lagerlof, Oscar Wilde, Elizabeth Goudge, Maxim Gorky, Ruth Sawyer, Anton Chekhov, and Walter Wangerin – as well as many you’ve never heard before. Illustrated with original woodcuts. You can see the complete contents here.
This is definitely a varied collection, but every story truly speaks of the meaning of the true Easter story. You might be surprised to see tales from Tolstoy alongside Lewis and and Wallace, but they offer up a true UNIVERSAL meaning to Holy Week and Easter. Reading through them while sitting with my dad, while he was in the hospital, this past week, I laughed and smiled, and realized what a wonderful collection it truly is! If God's will was for Jesus to die on the cross, to save mankind their sins, then what better way to honor that devotion, than with an anthology of works that spans eras and countries? This book would be a lovely family gift, perfect for telling a story each day during Holy Week from it, for family sharing and discussion! It would also be great for pastors and other church members, to thank them for their devotion!
One BTHM reader will win a copy of this lovely book for their family!
