Download a sample chapter of The Lightlings.
In The Lightlings, Dr. R.C. Sproul weaves an allegorical tale that captures the essence of the biblical story of redemption in a manner that will fascinate and delight children. A race of tiny beings known as lightlings are a picture of humanity as they pass through all the stages of the biblical drama - creation, fall, and redemption. In the end, children will understand why some people fear light more than darkness, but why they need never fear darkness again.
The Lightlings is an excellent introduction to the key themes of Scripture. Richly detailed illustrations by Justin Gerard will hold children’s interest, and discussion questions with Scripture references in the back will help parents guide children into the deeper meaning of the story.
Grandpa looked at Charlie and said, "That's a very good question. But you know, not only are lots of people afraid of the dark, many people are afraid of the light." "Afraid of the light?" said Charlie. "Why would that be?" Grandpa said, "To understand that, I have to start at the beginning - in fact, at the very beginning..."
Another beautiful parable for kids to teach them Jesus is the light of the world, and brings us into his kingdom of light even though we love our darkness. Puts a great spin on the normative fear of the dark that kids experience.
