The boy poses this question to his grandfather, who tells the allegorical tale of the lightlings. The lightlings are little beings of light who lived in paradise… until they disobeyed and lost their light. They were stumbling in darkness and fear in the wilderness, until the son came to them, shining a majestic light that reflected off the faces of all the lightlings that were attracted to the light, instead of running from it.
The images are enchanting. This would be a wonderful jumping off point to discuss the gospel with children… and I can especially see how it’d be perfect for children who are struggling with a fear of the dark. I am a big fan seeing God’s purpose and sovereignty in everyday things and this is a great way to train children to seek that outlook. This book connects a common fear to our universal need for God. That is a worthy thing indeed.
I would recommend this book.
I received this book for free from Reformation Trust Publishers in exchange for my unbiased review.
