“God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5).
R.C. Sproul’s children’s book The Lightlings begins with little Charlie’s question, “Why am I afraid of the dark?” What follows is a story that illustrates the Bible-wide theme of light and darkness. Sproul follows this theme from creation to the fall to redemption through Christ to the consummation of all things. At one point in the story, Grandpa (the storyteller in all of Sproul’s books) says, “You see, Charlie, we’re afraid of the dark because we were made to live in the light.” How true!
As with all of his children’s books, there is a useful question and answer study guide included. I heartily recommend it for both kids and adults.
