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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
