Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season

Easter, like Christmas, has always been an inspiration for writers of every time. There are books and stories that either retell the Biblical narrative in a new way, or highlight the core themes of the season.

One lovely collection is Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season, published by Plough Press. From Oscar Wilde and C. S. Lewis to Selma Lagerlof and Elizabeth Goudge, this collection will give a you a wide range of reading to inspire and encourage. The editors suggest these stories would be wonderful read aloud. I agree!

Plough also publishes a lovely collection of short readings for Lent and Easter titled Bread and Wine: Readings for Lent and Easter. Easter has 50 days, so it’s not too late to enter into the riches of that volume as well.
