Elsie Egermeier gets a lot of credit for this.
I have written about this because I can't help but worry that a new generation of boys and girls are growing up with only a scant awareness of those same stories that I once pressed into my mind and heart as a five-year-old.
Bottom line: our faith in the God of Jesus Christ is built on the stories. Read them. Tell team. Learn from them.
PS: Thankfully, Elsie Egermeier's Bible Story book remains in print. Talk to the people at Warner Press in Anderson, Indiana, or search Amazon.com.
Oh, by the way: no one asked me to write this.
