Item Description...
"You know the story of the Three Wise Men of the East, and how they travelled from far away to offer their gifts at the manger-cradle in Bethlehem. But have you ever heard the story of the Other Wise Man, who also saw the star in its rising, and set out to follow it, yet did not arrive with his brethren in the presence of the young child Jesus' Of the great desire of this fourth pilgrim, and how it was denied, yet accomplished in the denial; of his many wanderings and the probations of his soul; of the long way of his seeking, and the strange way of his finding, the One whom he sought - I would tell the tale as I have heard fragments of it in the Hall of Dreams, in the palace of the Heart of Man."

Henry Jackson Van Dyke was born in Germantown, Pennsylvania, in 1852, the son of a prominent Presbyterian minister and his wife. After graduating from Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary, van Dyke served as a university lecturer, a minister, and ambassador for the United States to the Netherlands and Luxemburg, and a chaplain in the U.S. Naval Reserve. A prolific and world-renowned writer and poet, van Dyke drew from his love of nature and religion to eloquently express his thoughts on the beauty of the outdoors, the nobility of mankind, and the need for righteousness to be preserved. He passed away at the age of eighty in Princeton, New Jersey, with his wife, Ellen, and several of his nine children at his bedside.

Dan Burr, an award-winning illustrator, earned a bachelor of fine arts degree from Utah State University and a master s degree in illustration from Syracuse University. He and his wife, Patti, are the parents of two children and live in Tetonia, Idaho. Dan has illustrated many children s books, including "The Miracle of the Wooden Shoes, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, "and "The Christmas Train.""

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Other Wise Man  Jan 14, 2008
Let the buyer beware; this is a children's book, a retelling of story in short, childrens form.
The Other Wise Man  Jan 12, 2008
The Other Wise Man is a great story. This version, shortened to tell to children, was the right length for my purpose. I read the story aloud at our family Christmas gathering and it touched everyone's heart, young and old. The tale describes a fourth wise man who is delayed because he helped people in need on his way to see the newborn King. He feels sadness that he failed to bring his gifts to the Christ child, but is assured in the end that God noticed his kindness to those he met. A great story, beautifully illustrated.
There was one flaw: the cover on this book was mounted backwards! I would not have wanted to use it as a gift for this reason, but it suited my purpose well and I sent it on to my grandson out of state who missed the family party.
I heartily recommend the book for children or adults. It gives an excellent parable of the way our response to others is actually a response to Christ.
The Other Wise Man, a wonderful classic from the past  Jan 12, 2008
The Other Wise Man was written in the 1890's but is just as beautiful today as it was then.
Not what it was described to be  Nov 28, 2007
This is not the story that Henry Van Dyke wrote. It is a retelling of his story by another person. The description does not state this fact.
I have given all my copies away!!  Dec 20, 2003
My English teacher read this to my class in Grade 12, and I remember crying in class. Very touching story which reminds us of the meaning of Christmas. I have purchased this for the children and adults in my life so many times that I have run out of copies. I guess that this site doesn't mind that...
