Easter Stories: Classic Tales For the Holy Season

Easter Stories: Classic Tales For the Holy Season, published by Plough Publishers, is a collection of favorite short stories from world renown storytellers such as C.S. Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, Anton Chekov and more. Edited by Miriam Leblanc and illustrated with beautiful woodcuts by Lisa Toth, this anthology of short stories capture the true meaning and spirit of the Holy Week and Resurrection Sunday and are tales sure to be handed down from generation to generation. 

This book has a rich collections of stories that are steeped in the tradition of our Christian heritage. As expected with a collection of tales from various authors, some are more enthralling than others. That is also the joy of having a wide variety---there is something for everyone. Most are not likely to be as interesting to younger readers, but they will appreciate them as they mature in faith and ability to comprehend a more complex work of literature. Also, some of the stories are more deeply rooted in either Catholicism or Protestant roots that may be unfamiliar to certain readers. However, this gives the readers the opportunity to expand their knowledge. 

I received a free copy of this book from Plough Publishing through Handlebar Marketing in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.
