is a story that highlights, not an individual person, but an object—a
jewel! This lost jewel passes through the hands of numerous characters, and
each time it is lost because of the lure of sin and ease of foolishness.

souls. Maurice Somers truly understands this, and he struggles to guard his own
soul against those who would rob him of the greatest treasure of all.

worth of your soul!

    Precious in the Sight of God Our soul is more precious than rubies. Surrendering to the Holy Spirit to live His Life by saturating our soul with Himself is the best choice. Do not degrade your own soul with sin and fleshly living.

    Good Double Story! I read “The Jewel” a few years ago for the first time, and knew this would be one I would re-read from time to time. ALOE is an expert at forming interesting stories which also illustrate a spiritual principle. This story follows a lost diamond through all its various owners, who each lose it in one way or another, demonstrating the way many people neglect their most important possession – their souls.
    It is not an easy read and is not fast-paced or extremely attention-grabbing, but it is well worth the time and attention required to read it. The language is not particularly difficult, the reader just has to be aware that many different characters will appear briefly, disappear, and possibly reappear later on. It can be a bit frustrating for a lazy reader, but worth the effort!

    The Jewel The book is a jewel. The Atma symbolizes things we hold on to in our lives that we feel are of great value. Sometimes we spend all our efforts and in some cases our whole lives to attain something priceless. If this happens we forfeit the greatest treasure which is not a thing but it is the person of Jesus Christ. I think the book beautifully brings out the struggle between the flesh and the Spirit.

    Well Written I was given this book as a gift and wasn’t sure how it would be. I was pleasantly surprised and would read again. Loved the ending!

    Another Favorite Very nicely done. Reminds me of Jim Elliot’s quote about giving up what we cannot keep to gain what what we cannot lose. Easy to speak, a little harder to carry out in one’s life. I highly recommend this book.

    Excellent Book! My husband and I only started reading this book, but so far we have been deeply impressed. As usual A. L. O. E. doesn’t disappoint. She brings biblical insight to a story that is interesting on its own. This book is well worth the money we spent on it!

    A Book with a Message I read this book aloud to my girls (11 & 12) after my son (19) had read it and bought it for two of his friends and recommended it. I think my girls understand how precious their souls are, even more than any rare jewel (like the Atma). Their purity is also more to be desired than any stone. An important message in a world & society where these things are sold cheap. Yes, I recommend it!

    A Clever Allegory and Good Read This book surprised me – despite being such a short story with such a simple premise, the author A.L.O.E. (one of my favorite authors of several Lamplighter books) has once again done an excellent job of weaving a creative, interesting tale filled with unique and memorable characters, believable motives, enduring and sometimes dire consequences for character decisions, and a central theme that is well-delivered with a decent conclusion.

    There is one key flaw with the story that keeps it from being a 5/5 stars – primarily, the biggest issue with the story is its overuse of a character’s dream as the moral code for the book instead of God’s Word. There’s nothing wrong with using a dream as a starting point for a character’s growth, but for a boy to grow into a man and constantly refer to this “dream” as his greatest moral conviction is pitiable. God’s Word should be the absolute authority and source of wisdom for a Christian and this book does a poor job of showing that.

    But this flaw doesn’t keep the story from being an enjoyable read, just know that my recommendation comes with a caveat.
