Stories from the Old Testament Retold by Logan Pearsall Smith


Logan Pearsall Smith


This book is a collection of short prose retellings of "incidents in the lives of the Old Testament worthies." (5). The collection aims to offer a "simple, reverent, but at the same time modern and psychological" portrayal of Biblical history, for the use of Sunday school students as well as their teachers (5). The psychologizing of Biblical characters seems fairly conjectural, and could potentially classify this as a piece of fictionalized biographical writing not dissimilar in tone and intent from the World-Makers and World-Shakers series
