Peace in War
An Adventure in Afghanistan
In this provocative story Peace in War: An Adventure in Afghanistan, we see evidence of God’s loving protection through treacherous events. The faithfulness of His followers is the very instrument He employs to give hope to the hopeless and sight to the blind. It is a riveting story—one you’ll never forget.
If God punished some sins and not others, where would be His justice? If God took notice of none, where would be His holiness? Or, if God promised punishment which He never inflicted, where would be His truth?
These questions have been wrestled with throughout generations. But God, in His wisdom, afforded a way by which sin could be punished, and yet the sinner forgiven, and justice, holiness, truth, and mercy all meet and unite together.

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.
