Easter Stories-Classic Tales for the Holy Season compiled by Miriam LeBlanc

Easter Stories-Classic Tales for the Holy Season compiled by Miriam LeBlanc and written by various authors.  This is a compilation of various short stories and essays suitable for Easter but certainly pertaining to most of the year.  These stories tell of the Christian reason for the season (Easter) but colorful Easter eggs and egg hunts do work their way into some of the stories.  Some of these stories are fables and some are true/some are ancient and some from recent history.  These stories can be used for pleasure reading but many I have heard used for mission minutes or short scripture lessons in small groups.  Some tell of holy persons and how they lived their faith in day to day life and some are more Bible based.  Some of the fables are the most life changing as the moral of the story creeps up on the reader more subtle.  These stories are written by well known authors like: C S Lewis, Leo Tolstoy, Oscar Wilde, and Anton Chekhov.  Many more are written by authors I had never heard of but the stories are familiar.  The great think about this book is that they are all together in one great resource at such a reasonable price.
I really like this book and think it can be read by people of all ages and both men and women.  Since it would be good to use for youth groups it is nice that it is a light-weight soft cover book that would easily be packed into luggage or a back pack for fireside use.  Buy and read this book.  It is good.
I received this book from Handlebar for this review.
