Phil Tyler’s Stand
The pressure is on in the town of South Madison when Phil Tyler moves into town! The new merchant is a bold, unashamed Christian and not at all a people pleaser. Phil aims to bring righteousness to a community riddled with lawlessness and disorder.
While Phil’s straightforward approach is a bothersome nuisance to some, others appreciate how his courage and faith bring about much needed change, not only in South Madison, but in the lives of several individuals as well.
Phil Tyler’s Stand is a book sure to raise questions about the role of Christians in their community and among their peers. How can we as believers be most effective in bringing about positive change in our own neighborhoods and communities?
Recommended reading level: Ages 9-14
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.
