Boxed gift set of three books by beloved authors of classic Christmas stories!
O Christmas Tree (SKU: 257760)- These heartwarming Christmas stories from three of the best known authors of the past century have all been gathered together in one volume! Inside the pages of O Christmas Three you'll find beloved author O. Henry's all-American tale, The Gift of the Magi, originally published in 1906; Leo Tolstoy's Russian folktale, Where Love Is, There God Is Also published in 1887; and two of Charles Dickens' little-known classics, Poor Travellersfrom 1854 and What Christmas Is As We Grow Older from 1851. Jacketed hardcover.
The First Christmas Tree (SKU: 259837)- For over one hundred years, the writings of Henry Van Dyke have been lovingly passed down from generation to generation. His Christmas stories, especially, are as resonant today as when the Presbyterian minister first read them to his New York City congregation in the late 1890s. In this volume of Christmas stories and prayers, we read of courage, generosity, and the triumph of light over darkness, from "The First Christmas Tree," a magical tale of the Thunder Oak and the false god Thor, to the lyrical story of "The Christmas Angel in the Country beyond the Stars."
The Story of the Other Wise Man (SKU: 256102) - His name was Artaban, and he told his doubting friends why he wanted to travel far away to see the promised king: "It has been shown to me and to my three companions among the Magi—Caspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. We have searched the ancient tablets of Chaldea and computed the time. We have studied the sky. We saw a new star there, which shone for one night and then vanished. Now again the two great planets are meeting. This night is their conjunction."
Try as he might, Artaban was unable to join the three Magi on that historic night. But as it turns out, he had even more important things to do—and he learned what it really means to know God.
