A prayer companion that allows passages from classic literature and the Bible to illuminate each other side-by-side. Andersen’s awkward search for love and friendship in his own life comes across in many of his tales. The underlying lessons and morals intertwined in his enchanting stories teach about loving one another, right and wrong, and the consequences of bullying, lying, and cheating. He also writes of siblings and friends caring for one another. And many of his characters pray and call on God in their times of need.
