Because he is helping others, a fourth Wise Man delays journeying with the other Magi to see the newborn Jesus, but thirty-three years later he has an unusual opportunity to meet his Savior. Long ago a man named Artaban and three companions followed a star to pay homage to a newborn child. Along the way Artaban stopped to help those in need. This touching story of one man's lifelong search for virtue captures the real meaning of Christmas. Watercolor illustrations. Because he stops along the way to Bethlehem to help people in need, Artaban, the fourth wise man, misses seeing the Christ child, but he is rewarded at the end of his life for his good deeds. Long ago a man named Artaban and three companions observed a new star in the night sky. They knew it signified the birth of a great teacher-someone who would bring change and hope to the world. There and then they decided to follow the star to pay homage to the newborn child. But along the way Artaban stops to help those in need, and his journey takes him far longer than he could have dreamed. Lovingly written and stunningly illustrated, here is a Christmas story unlike any other, about one man's lifelong search for virtue. The Fourth Wise Man truly captures the real meaning of Christmas and is sure to be a holiday favorite for all ages. Susan Summers is a former teacher who shared the story of The Fourth Wise Man with her students for many years, and finally decided to write it down.
