Quick Overview

The story you are about to read is true. And the book you hold in your hands is a winner—in more ways than one. 

Dark Night, Brilliant Star won first prize in the Christian biography division of the 1980 SEARCH manuscript contest sponsored by Pacific Press® Publishing Association. 

The contest judges picked this book as a winner. We feel quite confident that when you read it, you will too. 

Abram La Rue never received a call to foreign mission service from the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, but he felt an urgency to proclaim the message. An urgency that he could not quell. But because of his age, the brethren felt they could not send him overseas. 

La Rue decided to go on his own. For fourteen years, he and another colporteur worked on the island of Hong Kong distributing magazines, tracts, and books, and speaking words of encouragement to all. His one aim was to spread the good news of salvation wherever he went. 

This is the story of his life, beginning with the falling of the stars, which he witnessed as a boy of eleven. It is the story of a fortune gained and lost; but more than that, it is the story of the making of a crown of stars that will be presented by the King of kings to a man small in stature, but full of tireless energy and having a rare gift for communication with others—that man, Abram La Rue.

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Eileen E. Lantry


Of the seventeen books written by Eileen E. Lantry, two show how God used the faith and dedication of two men, who lived a century apart, to change the lives of the neglected Amerindians of Guyana, South America. Eileen felt honored and privileged to share with others how God used O.E. Davis and David Gates in close partnership with Him. In 2001 via dugout canoe and bush plane, she thrilled with joy as she worshipped with over a thousand dedicated "Davis Indians" in the Mt. Roraima area of Guyana and Venezuela.

"I've always been a missionary at heart," she said, "but God has given my husband and I the joy of sharing His love with many precious people overseas for sixteen years, mostly in Southeast Asia. Maranatha has added many shorter volunteer trips to other areas of the world."

Eileen has taught school from kindergarten to college. As a librarian she especially enjoys organizing school libraries so the students will be challenged to increase in knowledge. She combines Bible study and nature's secrets by introducing God's two marvelous books to youth in many countries. Mission projects combined with adding new birds, plants, and animals to her life list give travel a Christ-centered purpose.

Life is always fun as she squeezes into her busy schedule hobbies like gardening, cross-country skiing, and making scrapbooks of the places in the world where God sends her and her husband, Jay. Two sons and four grandchildren add to her joy. Truly she can say with John 1:16, "From the fullness of His grace we have all received one blessing after another."
