In the Western cultural context, it is often assumed that success and fulfillment are synonymous with the amount of power and influence that one accumulates over the course of a lifetime. In this spiritual tract, theologian Henry Van Dyke contends that the opposite is actually often closer to the truth; in other words, many people become happier when they renounce some of their worldly power and influence. A must-read for Christian believers attempting to reconcile their ambitions with their faith.

About the author

Henry van Dyke was an American religious writer, lecturer, and clergyman. Educated at the Theological Seminary at Princeton University, van Dyke returned to the school after his graduation as a Professor of English Literature and became an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 1913 he was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson, his former classmate, as the ambassador to the Netherlands and Luxembourg, a job that he maintained throughout the First World War. His most famous short stories include "The Story of the Other Wise Man" and "The First Christmas Tree," which, like many of his other works, centered around moral and religious themes. After a lifetime of public service and religious leadership, Henry van Dyke died in 1933 at the age of 80.
