This is the story of a young lad who loses his pa at the age of eleven and takes on the responsibility of the family farm. Charlie always tries to remember his father's counsel and follow it by doing right for others. However, his sixteenth birthday finds him overwhelmed with the arrival of a card containing a strange poetic message. This ordeal has Charlie in a state of confusion. Along with his pa's example, the help of Father Flanagan's Bible preaching, and some friends, Charlie discovers some valuable truths. From the leprechaun's curse, Charlie sees how vanity can be hidden deep inside. With that insight, he learns what true friendship is all about. As he starts to believe the priest about the Bible, he realizes that although you might know someone all your life, you may not really know them at all. His greatest revelation is that the verses in the Bible are applicable to everyday life. Through reading it, he learns that what seems evil, God can turn into good. Charlie McGee and the Leprechaun is an allegory in that it reveals the spiritual journey of a young lad to discover through his dilemma the truths of the Bible. ""R. C. Jette with the pen of the Lord has brought forth another biblically-based story. When we're tested, we discover what we're made of and what we've learned up-to-date. During these tests, we must be teachable to grow spiritually. Godly counsel and biblical truths at times seem difficult, but they must be followed. Without obedience, we won't overcome. Charlie and others are in these times of testing. What will they do? Will they hearken unto Bible truths or not?"" --Paul A. Jette, reverend R. C.
