Henry Jackson Van Dyke was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1852, the son of a prominent Presbyterian minister and his wife. After graduating from Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary, van Dyke served as a university lecturer, a minister, and ambassador for the United States to the Netherlands and Luxemburg, and a chaplain in the U.S. Naval Reserve. A prolific and world-renowned writer and poet, van Dyke drew from his love of nature and religion to eloquently express his thoughts on the beauty of the outdoors, the nobility of mankind, and the need for righteousness to be preserved. He passed away at the age of eighty in Princeton, New Jersey, with his wife, Ellen, and several of his nine children at his bedside.

About This Book
Overview

At this time of the year my family knows that I will read again my Christmas treasury of books and ponder the wondrous words of the authors. First will be the Gospel of Luke even the Christmas story. This will be followed by A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and finally, The Mansion by Henry Van Dyke. President Thomas S. Monson John Weightman wanted the best of everything. He surrounded himself with beauty and riches, and was very careful with how he spent his money. No pennies in beggars hats, he liked to say. Until one night he dreamed that he died . . . Finding himself with a group of travelers dressed in white, John joins them on their journey to the Celestial City where each individual will be rewarded with a mansion based on treasures set aside. Thinking that his mansion will be the most grand, John Weightman learns what it truly means to lay up treasures in heaven. The Mansion is a classic tale told at Christmastime that illustrates the importance of giving unselfishly.
