What you have in your hands is a handpicked collection of some of the greatest Christian stories ever written. Many were written in the most celebrated authors of all time—such as Leo Tolstoy, Mark Twain, and Johanna Spyri.
When we speak of these works as "Christian stories," we mean that each story has a powerful Christian message based on Jesus' teachings. Three of the stories are from Jesus Himself. Others were written by devout believers like Henry Can Dyke and Johanna Spyri. Yet, one of the authors—Mark Twain—was not a Christian himself. Leo Tolstoy radically embraced the teachings of Jesus, but he struggled most of his life with orthodox Christian doctrines. Yet, the stories included herein from both Twain and Tolstoy reveal profound insights into the teachings of Christ.
