Review:

Those who have read Margaret Silf's original collection of One Hundred Wisdom Stories from around the World will be delighted with this new selection of stories, some original, some 'retold' and some written by herself. They are mostly gathered when she was writer-in-residence at a Canadian Christian Life centre in 2013.

Jesus told stories to attract people's attention, to make them think, and to leave with characters like the Prodigal Son and the Good Samaritan indelibly stored in their minds. His stories have been life-changing for many.

Every single story or fable in this book is so captivating that the temptation is to taste the joy of the next one, and then the next immediately. In fact there are so many truths to ponder in each, that this book could make an excellent addition to your daily prayer and meditation time—if only you can limit yourself to one a day! 

It would also make an excellent Confirmation gift for an older teenager or adult. 

Prepare to be enthralled, encouraged, and challenged by what you read in this wonderful anthology.
