Tantor Media presents a collection of some of the most popular Christmas stories read by two award-winning narrators. This special anthology will transport listeners back to the Christmases of their youth, when they first heard these holiday tales
This tale is of the other wise man, who also saw the star and after his wanderings and hardships found the Christ Child in a very strange way.
It is the same old story of the struggle between the old and the new. This tale, portrayed in the dark detail of the eighth-century, tells of old foresters, who desire to cling to the past, and a bright, young Christian who comes to teach them about the birth of Christ.
April - the fourth month of the year in the Gregorian calendar heralds spring in earnest and, of course, April showers and perhaps other unsettled weather. For our poets, including Owen, Stevenson, Van Dyke, Hardy, and Shelley, the month provides a rich source for them to muse upon.
This is a tale of an early Christmas. It is also a story of the healing power of divine knowledge. Only a clergyman of the caliber of Rev. Henry Van Dyke could bring a story of Christmas and a profound lesson of life in one delightful piece of fiction.
A story set in Bethlehem during the time of the first Christmas. A lonely, sad shepherd, asleep when the angels sang their triumphant song, missed his chance of seeing the new baby. In time and through hardships, the memory of the baby's mother led him to the child.
Acclaimed writer Henry Van Dyke presents a staller collection of poems that also served as hymns in churches in the early 1900s. One is still sung today. Encouragement found in each stanza.
Henry Van Dyke is widely known for his classic stories like The Other Wise Man, but this audiobook is a series of three sermons he wrote on the subject of peace. Ironically much of what he wrote seems like current headlines. This series was written just after the conclusion of World War I. The same fears we experience now were experienced by those who heard these word for the first time. There is encouragement for all in this audiobook. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
Perhaps it should come as no surprise that an author would entertain a variety of Sprites while weaving new tales - the good, the bad and the popular. However, one unruly sprite ultimately brings a greater perspective to the life of the author. Narrated by Glenn Hascall.
