    CHAPTER XV THE SOVEREIGN GRACES OF THE HOME-Woodmam

    The home lies somewhere between the outer and the inner life of man and its life touches and is touched by both. It is one of the highways through which one passes from the inner to the outer life, the place, to change the figure, where the inner life is touched by the outer world and by it tested and searched and challenged.
