Excerpt from Telling Bible Stories The more definite purpose of the author is to start again in the world what it seems to be fast losing, the habit of bringing a child into a sense of God as his second nature, and so, without argument, show him that he is in the divine order. To this end these God-saturated stories of the Old Testament, the real meaning of which is always God in some human divine form, may thus be wrought into the growing mind of the child and become his governing force in life.
