Exiles in Babylon
Relive the times of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego
Charlotte Maria Tucker (1821 – 1893) was a prolific writer and poet for children and adults, who preferred to write under the pseudonym A. L. O. E. (a Lady of England).
The second volume in this dramatic “Faith Pictures” series by the 19th century author, affectionately known in her times as “A. L. O. E.” (A Lady of England) makes the Scriptures come alive! The pictures are so vivid, the characters so real, it is as though we are walking alongside Daniel in Babylon and his faithful friends, experiencing the momentous challenges they are faced with.
What courage! What great faith! Yet we are ever mindful that they were merely flesh and blood, no different than we are, and that our daily challenges can be met with the same fortitude and grit.
Originally written in 1864. The other volumes in Mrs. Tucker’s “Faith Pictures” series are:
- The Shepherd of Bethlehem
- Triumph Over Midian
- Rescued From Egypt
“Exiles in Babylon is the second book in the Heroes of Faith series. It is a captivating tale that weaves together the ministry of Mr. Eardley with a series of lectures he gives to the main characters of the story. This second book of the series focuses on Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego during Mr. Eardley’s lectures. These lectures induce wonderful changes in his hearers. It also causes the reader to reflect on God’s great faithfulness. Superb literature!” — Stephanie of Concord, North Carolina
About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
