ARTABAN DIDN'T HEAR THE QUESTION. HIS SHOULDERS SANK, AND GLOOM SETTLED ON HIS FACE. "THEY'RE GONE? DO YOU KNOW WHERE?" THE LAST MAGI BY E.A. SHARPE WILL TOUCH YOUR HEART, AND WARM YOU TO YOUR BONES.
Destined to be a Christmas classic, The Last Magi is the story of Artaban, the fourth Wise Man, who leaves his betrothed, the beautiful Rasha, to follow his fellow Magi to Bethlehem. Arriving too late, he sets out to find the child born under the star. Years pass as Artaban chases wisps and rumors across two continents. Weary and impoverished, the last Magi refuses to quit his quest, even as time is running out.
Destined To Become a Christmas Classic
My daughter was given this book by a friend, but before she could even read it, I snatched it up because I love fictionalized stories from the Bible. The Last Magi tells the story of the last Magi to see Jesus but in a twist not to give too much away, this Magi, Artaban, sees Jesus much later after the famous birth in a stable. But along the way, Artaban demonstrates the very human need to finish a quest, seek forgiveness, rise up after falling down, embrace the challenge of faith, and to love until one's dying day. The tale is both adventure and tender reflection. Yes, it is perfect for children, but it is also perfect for adults, too. Sorry kids, there are no pictures, but like all good stories, the narrator takes the reader into
the desert revealing its hardships and beauty. I hope this book sells really well and becomes a Christmas (and Easter) classic
E.A. Sharpe wrote an absolutely wonderful story that will give you a lift and show what commitment to a goal will bring to you.
It is the story of a Magi who missed his fellow Magi on their quest to find the child whom the star and prophecy spoke of. Yet he sets out on his own, and through hardship, and delays he gives all he has to help those in need along the way.
Years later he feels he is too late, but is he?
I loved this short book of Artaban’s quest to find Christ and believe it is a story that is a great read at any time of the year, especially at Easter.
