The Other Wise Man

By Henry Van Dyke

About the Book:

Though not mentioned by name in Scripture, all know the legend of Caspar, Balthazar and Melchior, whose gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh for the newborn king are heralded in carols. But what if another mage had missed the rendezvous and then spent years, searching for the source of the light? Henry Van Dyke imagines that alternative in “The Other Wise Man,” originally published in 1895. The narrator tells us that along the way, the fourth Magi did not find the Messiah to worship, but found many to help.

This is a beautiful hardcover edition with a dust jacket, ideal for holiday giving.
