The Bible is one of the two or three oldest books in the world, but unlike most of the ancient books, it is found not only in great libraries, but in almost every home of the civilized world; and it is not only studied by learned scholars, but read by the common people; and its many stories grasp and hold the attention of little children.
Here we present two public domain books of bible stories: The Wonder Book of Bible Stories, edited and arranged by Logan Marshall, and Bible Stories and Religious Classics, by Phillip P. Wells. We will add more bible stories to this site in the future!
