Sacred Stories

Wisdom from World Religions

Illustrated by: Caroline O. Berg
For Ages: 9 - 14
This comprehensive collection of timeless and powerful stories puts the wisdom of world religions in the hands of young readers.

When attempting to find a simple, engaging, and unbiased approach to world religions for her own family, Marilyn McFarlane discovered such a book did not exist. Understanding how important it is for children to build both respect for and knowledge of a variety of religions, regardless of their own faith, McFarlane created Sacred Stories: Wisdom from World Religions.

Each captivating story and accompanying sidebar facts and spot illustrations brings to life the key tenets of a particular belief system, while the comprehensive glossary and resource list enable readers to expand their explorations. Including easy-to-understand descriptions and essential stories from Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, Native American, and Sacred Earth, Sacred Stories is perfect for parents and teachers who want to expand young readers’ understanding of world traditions.

The simple, informative, unbiased language of Sacred Stories, combined with its comprehensive resource list and glossary, makes it an ideal learning tool for teachers, librarians, and other educators.

Marilyn McFarlane

Marilyn McFarlane, raised in a devoutly religious family, always had an interest in the diversity of world faiths. During her journeys as an author and travel writer, Marilyn continued her education by exploring sacred sites—Hindu temples in India, European cathedrals, Buddhist shrines, neo-Pagan altars, mosques in Morocco, and many more.

With the firm belief that understanding others’ faiths can lead to tolerance, acceptance, and peace, and an equally firm belief in the power of story, Marilyn wrote Sacred Stories. A mother and grandmother, she lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, two cats, and many books.
