Fastened Like Nails
Formerly titled Wings of the Morning
This treasure sat on my bookshelf for over twenty years! I am grateful that during his morning address at the Guild, Dr. Zacharias quoted snippets of wisdom by Frank Boreham, whom he considers to be one of the most important theologians of his personal library.
I now place Fastened Like Nails as one of my top ten books. It describes the power of the Word of God in the lives of such men as Luther, Tyndale, Wycliffe, Knox, Whitfield, Pascal, Judson, Livingstone, Paton, Carey, Newton, Bunyan, Cromwell, Taylor, Spurgeon, and Chalmers. The background of each man’s personal conquest makes every story rich and colorful, mixed with tragedy and sacrifice.
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.
