I didn't realize this book would be so tiny! I had to laugh at the box it was shipped in, and what came out of it, but it's really delightful. I had never read the story before, and when I read it to the kids at bedtime, we were amazed at the imagery. It's a beautiful story with a wonderful ending. When I finished reading it, my 8 year old son asked if he could tuck it into his pocket to keep. It fits in the palm of his hand and he sees it as a treasure to look at and think about.
I first read this book when I was in high school and it helped me a lot. Munger compares our Christian life to the rooms in our house. Very practical and inspiring. Over the years I have frequently purchased these booklets as gifts for adults, teens, and even pre-teens.
This book is an excellent reminder that we have invited God to live within our hearts and He waits for daily fellowship with us. Teaching from this book my youth group has a better understanding of what their relationship with God really entails . It is also a powerful reminder that we are never alone when we invite Him in.
This small booklet helps in seeing Christ as part of one's daily life (including one's home and activities). This booklet could easily be offered to new believers who are challenged with giving Christ priority in their daily life.
