I saw the 1985 made-for-TV movie version with Martin Sheen and Alan Arkin several years ago, and it really moved me at the time. I recently bought the DVD and watched it again and it is still a pretty powerful message. I finally picked up the book and enjoyed it, also. A timeless reminder that when we follow after Jesus, the fruit of our actions as we live our daily lives speaks volumes. Highly recommend it.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. The idea of a fourth Wise Man who had to set out alone to see the baby born in Bethlehem, was extremely poignant.
His generosity in giving away those precious gems he had saved to give to the newborn child, demonstrated his capacity to “feel” for others who were in need. He was the true wisest of Wise Men!
How often do we forget that good actions, as those performed by Artaban, are truly what the meaning of Christmas is all about
I found it to be a wonderful read for this Christmas season

I like to read this story at Christmas time. It can be read in a short period of time. The Story of Artaban has always been one of my favorite Christmas stories. The man who traveled all his life to present his gifts to the Christ child and in the end discovers he as been doing God's work all his life. The story is easy to read and very well written. This is one of the Better Christmas stories out there.

So much has been captured in so few pages. The plight of the fourth wise man takes the reader from wealth and comfort to compassion and service to those he meets. His depth of commitment to the king of the Jews carries him through a life of humility and grace. This book is for those firm in the gospel and those seeking a greater good from this mortal life. Nancique

It was cheap, I thought it would be better, but it wasn't. Kind of boring. Kind of predictable. Didn't get those warm fuzzies that I thought I might.

Fantastic book. I grew up on this one and it puts so much into perspective. Downloaded it and read it again as I was recommending it to others. Everyone should read this book and it does not take long to read.
