Pride and His Prisoners (A. L. O. E.)

$25.00 $21.50

Pride is an imprisoning sin. In this excellent story, Pride is personified as a demon which holds most of the inhabitants of an English parish in captivity and forces them to do his bidding. The lives of the characters demonstrate pride in one way or another, and finally results in a near-catastrophe during a hot-air balloon ride! A convicting story with a powerful point for us all!

But not all is lost, for the prisoners of Pride are at last released from his bondage and relationships are restored. Written originally in 1869, the story is timeless as, in every era, we all need a good dose of humility!

A. L. O. E. was the pen name for prolific British writer Charlotte Maria Tucker, which stood for “A Lady of England.”

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.
