I bought this book for my 8 year old son to read.

This book makes it very easy to teach children about how God's laws are made to protect them and keep them happy - and about the importance of following God's laws.

This is a tale of the importance of guarding your heart from evil. I bought this as a Christmas present for my two sons, ages (both nearly) 4 and 6. While it was a bit over the head of my 4yo it certainly captured my nearly 6yo's attention.

The kingdom in the book relies on the Lantern of Purest Light for peace and joy in the land. An evil dragon steals it and many seek to recover it, only to be lost themselves. The king sends his last and most trusted knight (along w/ his squire) to retrieve the lamp lest the kingdom perish. The squire was raised according to a scroll by parents who honored the Lantern while the knight is aware of it but doesn't allow it to dictate his actions. Who (I wonder...) will survive the perilous journey to the dragon's lair and bring the lantern back?

This is a Christian allegory that illustrates 5 main concepts in Christian living (i.e. keeping your gaze focused and not turning to the left or right) and it ends (in very tiny print) with a quote from Psalm 119:9. While it is aimed at young boys, it also serves as a reminder to parents to raise their young squires rightly, too. Highly recommended book. I also appreciated the sturdy hardcover binding.

I bought this book for my son's 5th birthday. He asks me to read it to him nearly every night. The story of knights and dragons engages him, as it is so exciting. And the beautiful illustrations keep his attention focused on the book as I read to him. He often wants to look at the book on his own before going to sleep.

I'm so impressed with Ms. Bishop's writing. The story grabs my son's attention at the very first page, and keeps the story moving. Even though I was afraid the book was a little lengthy for him to listen to, he was hooked. Also, the book shows how important it is to guard one's heart especially by what you hear and see. This principle is woven into the story so well, and not sugar-coated.

This is a wonderful book with a very simple and important message - heed the Word of God in all things. The young squire in the book succeeds where all others fail by following the words of his "scroll" and keeping himself pure - thus saving the entire kingdom from evil.

All of my children are captivated by this story - my boy and my girls, from the 7 year old right down to the 2 year old. This book makes it very easy to teach children about how God's laws are made to protect them and keep them happy - and about the importance of following God's laws. This has quickly become a favorite book at our house and we give it as a gift to every child we know - which has delighted the children and their parents alike.

I also highly recommend "The Princess and the Kiss" by the same author - another priceless aide in raising up our children for God.

While I appreciate the author's attempt to use allegory to encourage and assist parents in teaching that purity is important to their children, the author does not appear to have the theological skill of Lewis in writing allegory without unintentionally muddying the theological waters.

The representation of Christ as Aslan by CS Lewis is of a different nature than the angle of the Lantern that I see in the story line. In no way did Lewis ever compromise the nature of Christ. If in some way the Lantern is representing Christ, then He certainly doesn't need our protection - it's the opposite, we require His protection. If the Lantern is representing purity, then that is not something to be served...but something that serves us. (See the quotes I have pasted below pulled directly from the book "The Squire and the Scroll").

There is quite of bit of theological muddiness here - it's not as simple as if the Lantern represented Christ...which it can't, because we cannot have Christ stolen from us if we are believers. We dod not have to rescue Christ from the Dragon's lair, for Christ put all things under His feet. He is the victor. So if the Lantern represents Christ (as in a line quote below the Lantern shows the way), then what exactly is going on here? If we are talking about the Lantern representing Purity (which can and should be guarded), we have other issues.... Christ brings peace and joy, not being good. Christ should be honored as opposed to a quality (purity - see again the quoted lines below). The Pharisees honored "being good" (legalism) and were completely missing the mark. The story also talks about *obeying* the Lantern. If the Lantern is Christ, fine, He is honored by obeying the Scroll (Bible); however, if the Lantern is not Christ, but is Purity...

This is a must read for ALL males not just young boys! Oh how things might have been different for those men who struggled through their lives with the virtue of purity if they had only read a book like this one at a young age! Read this to your little boys! Women, buy it for the men in your life! Women, read it, too! And men, women, boys, (and girls) don't just read it once. Read it to help keep you on the right road, the road of purity. Parents, your children depend on you to have a pure heart. They do what you do more than do what you say. Take it from me, I'm a school counselor. I hear EVERYTHING. A pure heart (and mind) is a happy heart.

This book has adventure, suspense, and romance! You won't be disappointed!
