    This a handpicked collection of some of the greatest Christian stories ever written. When we speak of these works as Christian stories, we mean that each story has a powerful Christian message based on Jesus' teachings. Three of the stories are from Jesus himself. Others were written by devout believers like Henry Van Dyke and Johanna Spyri. Yet, one of the authors, Mark Twain, was not a Christian himself, but his story reveals profound insights into the teachings of Christ.

    "The Story of the Other Wise Man" by Henry van Dyke is a fictional addition to the Magi-account from the Bible. The "fourth" wise man, Artaban, is a Medes from Persia. Like the other Magi, he sees signs proclaiming that a King had been born among the Jews. He sets out with treasures to the child, too. But he stops along the way to help a dying man. He misses the caravan, so he sells one of his treasures to buy the camels and supplies for the trip. He arrives in Bethlehem too late to see the child.

    "The Valley of Vision" is an inspirational novel by Henry Van Dyke. From the Preface: "Why do you choose such a title as The Valley of Vision for your book," said my friend; "do you mean that one can see farther from the valley than from the mountain-top?" The mountain-top is the place of outlook over the earth and the sea. But it is in the valley of suffering, endurance, and self-sacrifice that the deepest visions of the meaning of life come to us.

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.

    "The Spirit of Christmas" is a collection of Henry Van Dyke's thoughts on the subject. "Power corrupts itself, and might cannot save. The Earth is full of ignorant strife, and for this evil there is no cure but by the giving of greater knowledge. It is because men do not understand evil that they yield themselves to its power. Wickedness is folly in action, and injustice is the error of the blind. It is because men are ignorant that they destroy one another, and at last themselves. If there were more light in the world there would be no sorrow."
