Henry Van Dyke's classic tale of the young Jesus Christ's visit to the temple during Passover has captured the imagination of generations of young readers. Van Dyke creates a compelling, believable tapestry of characters and experiences for the young Jesus--just a boy, loved by his parents, and still learning the lessons he would one day teach all mankind. Christians of all ages will enjoy this warm and loving portrayal, and remember it always. Henry Van Dyke was an American author, professor, and clergyman. He taught English Literature at Princeton for nearly 25 years, and served as minister to Belgium and the Netherlands at the beginning of World War I. His many Christian writings include Christmas stories, essays, and the lyrics to "Joyful Joyful We Adore Thee."
