Written by clergyman/poet Henry van Dyke in 1896, The Other Wise Man begins thusly: You know the story of the Three Wise Men of the East, and how they traveled 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....

This one-hour audiobook contains the complete text of Henry van Dyke's original story, artfully brought to life by a colorful cast of characters under the direction of David Nevland. Download and start listening now!

    " My edition is the original 1895, and this is the second time I have read it. The book is short and profound, the descriptions by Henry Van Dyke of Artaban's travels are colorful and precise. The book's story and message are timeless. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Corbin | 5/12/2010

    " It's like secular humanism for Christians. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/4/2010

    " I loved this one as a kid! We had an ornament of "the other wise man", too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 1/3/2010

    " I loved this classic fiction story of the Wise Man who never made it to see baby Jesus because he spent his life serving others and giving all he had. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Adam | 12/25/2009

    " More than merely sentimental, this Victorian-era American-penned Christmas novella mixes the qualities of parable with vivid descriptive narration that exhibits a distinct antiquarian flavor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob | 12/23/2009

    " A beautifully rendered, exotic tale about the heart of servanthood demonstrated by Christ's life and teachings, born out by the life of the 'other wise man', a magi who expends his life and his gifts for the King he seeks in serving and helping others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shelly | 12/21/2009

    " This is a very short book, but it's one of those that I read pretty slowly becuase it's thought provoking. Worth the read during Advent as we prepare our hearts for Christmas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 12/18/2009

    " This is a great short story about a fictional wise man who also sought the Christ. It is a quick read, which is just perfect for a hectic holiday season. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jana | 12/14/2009

    " I really didn't like the style of writing as well as I thought I would. But, the story in itself is beautiful. I don't say this often, but I liked the movie better than the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Darleen | 11/15/2009

    " This is another Christmas classic. During the early years of our family, it was read over the pulpit at church every Christmas by Vivian Hunter. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Violet | 10/4/2009

    " A story about the 4th wise man who did not make it in time to see Jesus in Bethlehem. This book is beautifully written. It should be part of everyones Christmas. "
