Henry Jackson van Dyke Jr. (November 10, 1852 – April 10, 1933) was an American author, educator, and clergyman. Van Dyke was born on November 10, 1852, in Germantown, Pennsylvania.

Henry Jackson van Dyke Jr. He was the son of Henry Jackson van Dyke Sr. (1822–1891), a prominent Brooklyn Presbyterian clergyman known in the antebellum years for his anti-abolitionist views. The family traced its roots to Jan Thomasse van Dijk, who emigrated from Holland to North America in 1652.

Henry Jackson van Dyke (1852-1933) attended Princeton University, then served as pastor of the Brick Presbyterian Church in New York City. Seventeen years later, he returned to Princeton as a professor of English literature. Afterward, he held a number of eminent posts: American ambassador to the Netherlands and Luxembourg, moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church, Commander of the Legion of Honor, and President of the National Institute of Arts and Letters.

As titled, this book contains several of Henry van Dyke's Christmas stories. All of the stories are enjoyable to read, but two stand out. "The Story of the Other Wise Man" is a book that everyone should read, and periodically reread. I had expected it to last for 3 sittings, but Dad wanted to hear the end! This is a very special book for him, since he knew Henry van Dyke when he was in high school around 1930.

Then you are ready to keep Christmas! ― Henry Van Dyke. Oh, London is a man's town, there's power in the air; And Paris is a woman's town, with flowers in her hair; And it's sweet to dream in Venice, and it's great to study Rome; But when it comes to living, there is no place like home.

We settled on The Mansion by Henry Van Dyke, a Christian short story about a wealthy man who has a life-changing dream, much as Ebeneezer Scrooge did in Dicken’s classic. In The Mansion, however, the main character is not a grinch being greedy. John Weightman is a very generous man, having donated to charities such as hospitals and orphanages throughout his life. My book group enjoyed discussing the ways in which we can adjust our attitudes toward giving; are we giving for that Christmas morning reaction? are we giving for worldly recognition? What does it mean to give selflessly?

I absolutely loved this short story. The lessons it teaches about true Christianity are vibrant and clear. It is slightly reminiscent of "A Christmas Carol", but it differs also in powerful ways. The main character believes he is a good Christian, and feels that he has done much good in the world. He has done much good, but all of it has been calculated to be of benefit to him in this life. He learns through a beautiful Christmas Eve experience that you can receive your rewards on earth, or in heaven, but not in both places.

This book was recommended to me after a Christmas devotional by President Monson. After reading it, and understanding one of the reasons that this book was talked about, I have to say that I really enjoyed the message. It is one of forgetting oneself and focusing on the needs of others, which is something that is often forgotten in this world. It is a simple book, short, and a lot of life's meanings can be found from this.

I read "The Mansion" for the first time last year. I immediately felt inspired by the story and wished I had read it years ago. To see that someone had illustrated the story was so exciting. I bought the book as soon as I saw it. The illustrations add to the story and make it so adult and child alike can appreciate the message given. This will be a book I will read yearly at Christmas time.

Such a great book! I think it's going to be a new family tradition to read this at Christmas time! Beautiful illustrations and educational on what it means to be charitable and loving to your fellow man.

I have read this twice now over the course of 2 months (Nov-Jan 5). Each time it has brought me to think of what I have given to others with pure joy of giving.
I will continue to live modestly and give freely for the blessings I receive from this way of life is immeasurable here on earth. But I can honestly say I am rich in heart.
As you read this book, look at your own life and reflect....change if you feel the need.

This is one book I should read at least once a year. Profound. Straight to the gut then up to the heart. Excellent. And it accomplished all that without one F-word. Amazing what beautiful literature can accomplish.

This is my second time reading "The Mansion" and I'm thinking of making it a holiday tradition. It is a wonderful short story about the true spirit of giving. Definitely a must read!

What counts in heaven is what's truly given during our time on earth. "Lay not up for yourself treasures upon earth. ... But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven." —Matthew 6:19-21
Lest we lose proper perspective for our value in life, reading this will remind us that that what we have and do here is part of a greater plan. Take 30 minutes and read it for yourself.
