Item Description...
In this classic travel narrative, journalist Paul Williams Roberts visits the Middle East to trace the Magi's legendary journey through Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Jordan to Bethlehem. Chasing clues from Marco Polo's Travels and the Dead Sea Scrolls to the stories of King Solomon and the Crusader Knights, Roberts seeks the historical truth behind Matthew's account in the New Testament. Filled with encounters with eclectic characters, from smugglers to Zoroastrian priests, Journey of the Magi is the story of an extraordinary adventure and an illuminating voyage of discovery into the truth behind the Magi and the birth of Jesus. This latest edition includes a new introduction by Roberts.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting but biased  Nov 12, 2006
This book, part travel journal-part theological discourse, is certainly an interesting read. It provides a unique look at several middle eastern countries, giving an uncommon window into their culture and people. Roberts has unabashed affection for most of the countries in the middle east and he seems intent on trying dispel some of the myths Westerners have of their religions, customs and politics. However, he is also equally intent on basically dismantling all of the key stories of the Bible and presenting Christianity as a complete farce. He makes many accurate connections between the origins of Christianity and other ancient religions, specifically Zoroastrianism, but he also makes many huge assumptions and presents lots of theories as though they are fact (simply because they are the theories he prefers). He has no trouble viewing all of the canonical scriptures as flawed and carrying a hidden agenda, yet any other ancient text not part of the canon he is more than willing to accept as unadulterated fact. It seems the only requirement of authenticity and value Roberts needs for ancient texts is that they not be found in the Bible. Like most journalists, he likes to pretend that as a journalist he is giving us the "truth" as we've never seen it before, but really this book would be more aptly titled, The World and Religion According to Paul William Roberts. Read this book and be entertained, and even inspired to look more closely at a fascinating ancient religion (Zoroastrianism), but I would encourage all to read Roberts' theories with a critical eye.
