Description of The Barber Who Wanted to Pray:
R. C. Sproul's beautifully illustrated story about Martin Luther's barber will teach children how to pray.This imaginative tale from R. C. Sproul, based on a true story, begins one evening with Mr. McFarland leading family devotions. When his daughter asks him how she should pray, Mr. McFarland shares a 500-year-old story about a barber and his famous customer.

Master Peter is a barber well-known to all in his village. One day, when Martin Luther the Reformer walks into his shop, the barber musters up the courage to ask the outlawed monk how to pray. Luther responds by writing a letter to the barber. The barber's life and many others' are changed as they encounter a model for prayer by using the Lord's Prayer, the Ten Commandments, and the Apostles' Creed.

Description of The Prince's Poison Cup:
With The Prince's Poison Cup, Dr. R. C. Sproul focuses on the atonement to show that Jesus had to endure the curse of sin in order to redeem His people from their spiritual death.

When Ella gets sick and has to take yucky medicine, she wonders why something that will help her get well has to taste so bad. When she puts the question to Grandpa, he tells her the story of a great King and His subjects who enjoyed wonderful times together - until the people rebelled against the King and drank from a forbidden well. To their horror, they found that the beautiful water in the well made their hearts turn to stone. To reclaim His people, the King asks His Son, the Prince, to drink from a well of horrid poison. The poison will surely kill the Prince - but He is willing to drink it to please His Father and help His people.

Description of The Lightlings:
Not everyone is afraid of the dark. Some are afraid of the light. In The Lightlings, Dr. R.C. Sproul weaves an allegorical tale about a race of tiny beings known as lightlings represent humanity as they pass through all the stages of the biblical drama - creation, fall, and redemption. In the end, children will understand why some people fear light more than darkness, but why they need never fear darkness again. The Lightlings is an excellent introduction to the key themes of Scripture. Richly detailed illustrations by Justin Gerard will hold children's interest, and discussion questions and Scripture references in the back will help parents guide children into the deeper meaning of the story.
