“In the time of King Herod, after Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea, wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking, "Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage." —Matthew 2:1–2

This enchanting Christmas story by beloved author and preacher Barbara Brown Taylor follows the three wise men on their world-changing journey to Bethlehem. In this beautiful retelling of their adventure, Taylor captures the power of one very special star and gives readers a new perspective on the three wise men and their encounters with King Herod, Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus. Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story features breathtaking artwork from illustrator Melanie Cataldo and is perfect for gift-giving. Ideal for children ages 8-10.

"Barbara Brown Taylor has a way with words. She has long been known for the eloquence of her sermons and books for adults, her ability to delve into a biblical text and to carefully examine and uncover the deeper meaning, layer by layer. In Home by Another Way, Taylor brings her skills to the world of children's literature. This delightfully fresh and creative story follows the journey of the wise men as they follow the light of a mysterious star that leads them to a small town town in the Middle East, and to an unlikely newborn king. The wise men bring the child their expensive gifts, but they are the ones who leave all the richer with gifts they could never have foreseen. Their lives are forever changed by the holy baby who will end up upending the world."

Kathleen Long Bostrom, award-winning children’s book writer of What Is God Like? and Stories from the Bible
