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.
