Having recently become a father, I have been eager to find books that will help teach the truth of the gospel to my son in ways that he would find interesting and simple enough to understand.
That is why I was very excited to discover that RC Sproul has written a number of such books. The Lightlings tells the story of small pixie-like creatures who are created to bear the King’s light, but who are afraid of the light, run away, and eventually forget about it all together.
In this rendition, Jesus literally blazes onto the scene, but in the form of a small child. A relationship with the child gives light to those who seek him and to those with whom they share the good news.
With beautifully vibrant, full-color images that often take more than one page, this story is sure to draw the imagination of any child and point them to Jesus, the true King of Light. Included at the end of the story is a helpful guide to discuss the story with your child to help him or her connect the elements of the story with the life of Jesus.
