Oh, that music how it rolled around the ring Tip was too busy looking and listening to keep out of people's way; he stepped back, still jostled by the crowd who were pouring in, and stepped directly in front of a man who was trying to make his way through the crowd around the entrance.

I loved this book!! It's a wonderful example and lesson on really using the Word of God as a lamp unto our feet - teaching us to truly examine what we do by the word of God. God says that if we love Him we will obey Him and to be doers of the Word, not hearers only! That is just what Tip did and teaches us to do as well!!

It is about a boy who surrenders his life to Christ and so he helps change the lives of his neighbors as he grows up, both physically and spiritually. I wish could become the man of God he became and take the Bible as my lamp too, all the days of my life.
