A young boy went to the king and asked him why we have shadows and where they come from. This is the plot for the first children’s book R.C. Sproul wrote – The King Without A Shadow. The king doesn’t know the answer to the boy’s question and neither do his wise men or advisers. When the king visits a prophet, the answers are given. The king calls the boy and answers his questions.
What follows is an explanation of the holiness of God (the King without a shadow). It’s a good introduction to the subject, written in such a way to be understandable to children (maybe not the youngest children, though). The holiness of God is a massive subject which we can only understand partially in this life, but Sproul has given parents a good way to introduce the subject to their children.
This is the only children’s book written by Sproul that does not contain a study guide and questions (which is too bad). I hope a future edition will include it.
I recommend it. Tolle lege!
