Item description for My Heart Christs Home (Package of 5) by Robert Boyd Munger...
Overview One of the most beloved pieces of Christian literature in this century now comes to you for the first time in this outstanding gift edition. With ten million copies in circulation, MY HEART-CHRIST'S HOME has for forty years vividly expressed what it means to bring every aspect of our lives under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
Robert Boyd Munger imagines for us what it would be like to have Christ come to the home of our hearts. Room by room we consider with our Lord what He desires for us. Are we prepared to meet with Him daily in our living room? In the dining room we examine together what appetites should and should not control us. And is there a closet in our lives that He could help us clean out?
This new edition includes "rooms" never before published. And the ten warm and inviting color illustrations by Andrea Jorgenson accent the message of this classic, helping us reflect on what it means in Ephesians 3:16 "that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith."

Reviews - What do customers think about My Heart Christs Home ?
Great for the purse or bathroom Apr 20, 2009
This is a very tiny book, but packs a lot in it's little pages. Great to put in the bathroom where you or visitors, need a diversion. Also would be good to put in your purse for waiting room material. Suitable for gift baskets too! Just to small for most book shelves.
My Heart-Christ Home Jan 24, 2009
I have used this book many times over the years to encourage people to have regular quiet times with their Lord. It has an excellent message with great illustrations of how Christ wants to have a personal relationship with us.
Sanctification Jun 14, 2008
This book nicely introduces readers to the topic of sanctification. We need to confess & renounce our old lifestyles, habits and hangups to live in peace and calm with God.
An Old Favorite Mar 9, 2008
This book is very small, but has a hard cover. It is just right to tuck in another gift as an extra surprise. Even though I have read this book before, it still has the power to touch me and help me take inventory of my walk with God. Sometimes we do tend to leave Christ out of certain areas of our lives, and this book opens your eyes to see these areas, but it is done in a very loving way. I was going to order some more copies as gifts, but have not been able to find this particular edition on this site again. Perhaps, I will take another look to see if I have missed it.
Interesting, if inadequate... Dec 20, 2007
I realize that this booklet has been highly reviewed by others, and I can understand why. "My Heart-Christ's Home" is essentially an extended analogy between our lives and our homes. Munger translates the common evangelical idea of inviting Jesus to live in our hearts into a situation in which Jesus is invited to physically live in our house. He walks through the house and describes how Jesus would interact with each part.
It's an interesting analogy, relatively well-executed. My critique is that it definitely enters the world of cheesiness a few times, going overboard with the "Christ as my buddy-buddy" idea. Though personalizing Jesus is helpful, there is something hokey about a picture of Jesus in bathroom slippers sitting in my living room reading the newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. Maybe this is just a reflection of the pamphlet showing its age.
I was also overwhelmed by the brevity of this "book." It can easily be read in one sitting, which is convenient. However, I would have preferred something more substantive. Ultimately, this booklet is solid and worthwhile, if somewhat incomplete.
