The Shepherd of Bethlehem (A. L. O. E.)

$26.00 $22.50

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).

A charming tale which includes cottage lectures on the history of David, which the incidents in the story illustrate. This book is unique in that it weaves lengthy passages of scripture throughout the entire book. The passages are paralleled to the characters in the story, and they, in turn, respond to their life challenges according to God’s Word. Isn’t that what His Word is supposed to do for us? This was a story that I just couldn’t put down.

This is the 1st volume of the “Faith Pictures” Series. The 2nd volume is Exiles in Babylon, by the same author, and third of The Shepherd of Bethlehem.

Reader Review

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.
