Publisher's Summary

"The Spirit of Christmas" is a collection of Henry Van Dyke's thoughts on the subject.

"Power corrupts itself, and might cannot save. The Earth is full of ignorant strife, and for this evil there is no cure but by the giving of greater knowledge. It is because men do not understand evil that they yield themselves to its power. Wickedness is folly in action, and injustice is the error of the blind. It is because men are ignorant that they destroy one another, and at last themselves.

If there were more light in the world there would be no sorrow. If the great King who knows all things would enlighten the world with wisdom - wisdom to understand his law and his ways, to read the secrets of the Earth and the stars, to discern the workings of the heart of man and the things that make for joy and peace - if he would but send us, his messengers, as a flame of fire to shine upon those who sit in darkness, how gladly would we go to bring in the new day!"
