Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story
There once were three wise men who spent their lifetime searching for purpose. One man only ate herbs, the other walked coals, and the last one read in ancient languages, but still something was missing. Then one day a star appeared in their eyes, showing them the way to a greater purpose. Along their journey, they met people who were out for their own gain, but these men knew they were on a holy mission. As they followed the star right to Bethlehem, they discovered a baby and left with a greater gift than they could ever give: love, hope, and a holy story to share.
A perfect holiday gift, Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story beautifully retells the three wise men’s journey to readers of all ages. Barbara Brown Taylor creatively tells her own story behind the famous wise men, creatively giving their sacred journey a backstory. Melanie Cataldo’s mesmerizing illustrations breathes beauty into the storyline, allowing readers to fall deeper into the tale. While this is not a backstory that appears in scripture, this story, told in today’s language, gives readers a new way to think about the wise men and their own personal journeys.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
