This book of tales and legends draws from the rich and diverse heritage of the Christian faith in other times and other places. Some of the tales, such as the story of St. Christopher, are widely known. Some, such as the story of a fourth wise man, have many variations. Others, such as the tale of Abelard and the 3 gifts, are rarely heard. All of them are evocative, inspiring, and very memorable.
