Clambering through the Wardrobe
By Joan Campbell, South Africa
Even as an adult, these children's books touched me deeply, and I realized the powerful way a story can impart spiritual truth. My children were drawn to read other titles in the fantasy genre. However, not all of them conveyed a message of hope or pointed to a powerful, loving God. In fact, many times the opposite was true. I understood then that there is a great need for stories that are imaginative and exciting, which also honour God.
Following this insight, I wrote “Poison Tree Path,” a young adult fantasy. The main character discovers a book, which once deciphered, leads her on an exciting journey of discovery, and—through the ultimate sacrifice of another—to restoration and hope. It’s a story that resonates with God’s truth. My prayer is that it will draw young people to seek Him in His own book, the Bible.
