A grandfather gently persuades a reluctant little boy to wash both hands. A wise woman draws upon her knowledge of baking to teach an important lesson about life's empty places. A millionaire tumbles ingloriously down a flight of stairs because he is too haughty to take note of a scrublady and her bar of soap.

BartonÂ's winsome characters will charm you and his wry wit will entertain you—smoothing the way for his deft applications of timeless, biblically rooted wisdom. Assuming the voice of an ancient sage, but commenting on life in the early twentieth century, Barton captivated millions of readers with his extraordinary insight into everyday happenings. Half a century later, church historian Garth Rosell began reading these stories to delighted friends and students. Many who heard them at the dinner table, from the pulpit, and in the classroom wanted to share them with others. So Rosell, with the help of writer Stan Flewelling, sought out the now-rare original volumes in order to make the present collection available to a contemporary public that cherishes the power of a well-told story to speak truth straight to the heart.

I bought this for my mother, and she likes it so much that she wants me to order one for her friend as a present. I told her to just loan it to her, and she says some books are just to good to let them get away from you. She likes Barton's writing style in this book, and the fact that you can read one of the stories in a few minutes.
This was a used book, but it was in better shape than some that I have seen being sold as new in stores! The stories are short, nice to read to children. They are also very humorous, yet with a deeper meaning that older readers will appreciate. The style of writing is a bit different - Old English style, perhaps, with odd grammar and capitalization - yet the setting is in America, with trains and other means of transportation. All in all, though, it is a wonderful book to read as a family.
This is a sweet and charming book full of parables written by pastor William Barton. He turns every day occurrences into parables to learn from. They are funny, helpful and endearing. You will love this quick read
Great family reading. I do wish there were more than just 3 volumes in this series.
William Barton took everyday incidents from his own life and wrote about them with warmth and wit. He used mock Elizabethian language to create an atmosphere all his own. He was Safed the Sage, his wife was Keturah, and his grand daughter the daughter of the daughter of Keturah. These three characters appear regularly in the pithy little stories. Barton was meditaiting on life from a Christian perspective. He is never preachy but writes with real insight. These stories can be read aloud or silently over and over again. The book makes a wonderful gift, especially for those who are not great readers.
This book is a classic. It contains short stories, only 2 or 3 pages each, of humorous, pithy, stories, all with an important moral issue to be applied.
love it


Love this book & I love reading it to my family. This one is the best in the series, but all three are worth getting!
