"I do not know where this little story came from--out of the air, perhaps.  One thing is certain, it is not written in any other book, nor is it to be found among the ancient lore of the East.  And yet I have never felt as if it were my own.  It was a gift, and it seemed to me as if I knew the Giver."  
--Henry Van Dyke

Long, long ago, a wise man named Artaban, a priest of the Magi, discerned from heavenly signs that the time was at hand for the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy--the birth among the Hebrews of a holy Prince and Deliverer of Man.  Hastening to join three fellow Magi for the long journey into Judaea, he paused to help a dying man and was left behind.  And so Artaban began his pilgrimage alone, striking out not toward the realization of his life's deepest longing, as he hoped, but only toward misfortune and suffering.  Or so he believed until one blessed, radiant moment.

With an introduction by Leo Buscaglia
