The Story of Jesus has inspired the pen of the learned and the
tongue of the eloquent. But it is best told in childlike language. The
wonderful spectacle needs no human coloring. Its glory surpasses the art of
men. It shines brightest in its own luster.
In these pages no effort is made toward artificial embellishment. The plain
story, as told by one who is moved by a deep sense of the infinite
proportions of the subject, has been put into the language of the young. In
its simplicity not only does it speak to the hearts of the young, but it
meets the desire expressed by us all in the familiar song--
"Tell me the story simply, as to a little child."
May it be received in the same simplicity and purity of faith.
- Ellen G. White
