Christian readers who bear a deep love for fantasy will discover a treasure in Faerie Gold. It is indeed filled with gold--the gold of God's great gift to mankind: imagination. Be sure not to skip the Introduction. It will help you rejoice that God has given His people the power of imagination and ability to discern its dangers. The editors give you a guiding key: “A light to guide your path, a sword to battle evil, and a shield to guard your heart...all...from the same One who gave you the golden key of imagination.”
Wonderful, moral stories fill these pages: George MacDonald's Princess Daylight, banished to the dark by a wicked fairy; Edith Nesbit's young lad, Kenneth, who spent an afternoon as a fish; Andrew Lang's Cinderella-like prince; Hans Christian Anderson's Conceited Apple-Branch; plus many others. Before you begin these grand tales, it might be wise to turn to the penultimate chapter titled “A Message to Parents and Teachers.” This chapter explains clearly and concisely why Christians need to use their imagination, and enjoy faerie. This chapter includes an interesting, brief look at John Bunyan and his fantasy. The final chapters provide further interest, a collection of quotes, and brief biographies of the authors.
Author, educator, literary critic, and C. S. Lewis buff, Kathryn Lindskoog brought great professional and individual insight to Faerie Gold. Teacher, author, Christian, and collaborator with Lindskoog on other writings, Ranelda Hunsicker's perception and sensitivity enrich this volume. A book for a wide audience, families, homeschoolers, teachers, scholars of many ages, and all lovers of God-enriched fantasy will enjoy and value this collection. Faerie Gold is only one of the volumes in P&R Publishing’s enjoyably useful series, Classics for Young Readers. – Donna Eggett, Christian Book Previews.com

Editorial Reviews

C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien affirmed the power of fairy stories to educate the imagination and moral sensibility. FAERIE GOLD is a magnificent testimonial to the correctness of their judgment. There is something here for everyone. FAERIE GOLD is first and foremost a book for children. But as all the greatest writers of fairy stories have insisted, adults never tire of the really great fairy stories. In addition to the anthology of classic fairy tales, the editors have crowned their achievement with two sections at the end of the book that make it even more of a treasure—an essay defending fantasy and fairy stories and a collection of choice quotations on those same subjects.
