About the Book:
Everyone who believes Easter is about more than bunnies and eggs will be grateful for this new collection of short stories that shed light on the deeper meaning of the season. Selected for their spiritual value and literary quality, these classic tales capture the spirit of Easter in a way that will captivate readers of all ages.

Easter is an amazing time honoring our Savior and the sacrifice he made for each of us. It is also for me, a quiet time of reflection. Easter is an event that will remain a stay in every Christians mind as a day of utmost importance. Easter Stories: Classic Tales for the Holy Season, is a great book to read up on some things that could touch our hearts that others have written.
My favorite story in the book was the one entitled Easter Under A Park Bench, it tells a story of a homeless man and young man having a conversation. The young man is curious about the homeless man and because of the curiosity he decided to have a conversation with the man which in turn the conversation turns towards Easter and its an eye opener for the young man. The story is simply touching.
Each of the stories, twenty-seven in all, are some of the most heart wrenching stories you will ever hear. These stories are quickly becoming classics to be read again and again to many generations. easter is for family and sharing these stories with them is a gift that goes beyond words.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from Handlebar.
