Item Description...
New from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, GIFTS OF THE MAGI is a wonderful Christmas time keepsake that explores the first Christmas gifts. Gold, frankincense, and myrrh - these were the precious gifts offered to the infant Jesus by the Magi, the three wise men who followed a star to the humble dwelling where the Christ child was born. But who were these men, and why did they chose those gifts? Why were frankincense and myrrh considered in biblical times to be as valuable as gold? This book tells the story of the Magi and their journey and explains the symbolism and the significance of their gifts. In addition, it discusses how frankincense and myrrh were grown, harvested, and transported in antiquity and their use in various cultures of the ancient world. The package includes a gift - 24-karat-gold in a glass bottle and frankincense and myrrh in mesh bags that allow their exotic fragrance to emanate.

Nice Little Book  Dec 23, 2007
My son had been asking for this for months. It is for sale in our small church store. Everytime he would see it, he would ask. I decided to buy it for him for Christmas this year. It really is a very nice book, a lot of info in a small amount of space. To get the gifts that were presented to Christ, our God, is also very special. The whole family will come to treasure this book and gifts more and more as we use it by our small Nativity Scene each Christmas.
Gifts of the Magi  Jan 16, 2007
It was a helpful little book. Simple and to the point.
Perfect gift for the feast of the Epiphany! (Jan. 6th)  Jan 1, 2004
This book comes with small samples of Gold, Frankincense, and Myrrh, which have a special blessing in the Catholic 'Rituale Romanum' for the feast of the Epiphany, the feast of the arrival of the three Magi (Caspar, Melchior, and Baltassar) at Christ's crib. This boxed set is perfect for the blessing of the three gifts, which can be combined with the special Epiphany blessing of houses, since the priest can use the Frankincense for incense during the house blessing. Part of the blessing states "From the East the Magi came to Bethlehem to adore the Lord; and opening their teasures, they offered costly gifts: gold to the great King, incense to the true God, and myrrh in symbol of His burial. Alleluia."
A perfect, usable gift that can be kept alongside the family Nativity scene for years to come.
A fascinating collection of art and lore about the Magi.  Sep 19, 1999
The perfect accompaniment to celebrations of Epiphany! This exquisite little book, illustrated with masterpieces from the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Medieval and Renaissance collections, tells the history and lore of the Magi and the precious gifts they brought to the infant Jesus. The beautiful samples of real gold, frankincense, and myrrh are treasures your children might add to the family creche with appropriate ceremony.
An excellent, short story, packed with factual information.  Oct 29, 1998
I would highly recommend this book for anyone familiar with the story of the "three wise men" and the birth of Jesus. Although it is very short, it is packed full of facts, using the Bible and other history information for support. The book also touches on some of the myths and legends behind the story and gives their resources as well. What I believe to be the main theme of the book, and, quite possibly, the most important, is at the end of the book when the author tells us exactly what the three gifts represent. In a nutshell, Gold is for Kings, Frankincense is for a God, and Myrrh is for man. Thus, the Holy Trinity!
