The White Knights
An all-time Boy’s favorite from the Lamplighter Rare Collectors Series! From the author of Sir Knight of the Splendid Way comes this tale of three boys who create their own “White Knights Club”. They form it to take on the challenges of day-to-day life by “proving their faith by their works” – protecting damsels in distress, defending the weak and aiming to honor God, their King, in all things.
A story of chivalry, setting wrongs right, helping others, which just might change your child’s whole outlook on the nobility and grandeur of the privilege of serving God.
Three boys in the White Knights Club take on the challenge in their day-to-day lives, just like the knights of King Arthur’s court, to prove their faith by their works-protecting “damsels in distress”, defending the weak, and honoring their God and King. This story challenges boys to live chivalrously – in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities.
Character themes in this story: peer pressure, selflessness and selfishness.
“I loved this book! It is a must read for boys! But it teaches everyone to have a heart of service, and helps you have the right reasons to do so. Everything is done in service of our King Jesus.” — Rebekah, Georgetown, TN
“This is a great book for boys to encourage them to live for the Lord when they’re young and to make the most of their time!” — Amy Steeger, The Colony, Texas

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.
