Fr. Dwight Longenecker, Mystery of the Magi

The subtitle of Fr. Dwight Longenecker‘s Mystery of the Magi promises – and delivers – a true mystery indeed. The Quest to Identify the Three Wise Men has been going on for centuries, Doug Keck of EWTN Bookmark remarks to the author of this fascinating chronicle.  The Magi were real men of Our Lord’s day, and Fr. Longenecker takes us on a journey back in time to determine where  they came from, who they were looking for, and why, having found Our Lord, wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger, they fell down in worship, gave him three meaningful gifts, and were emboldened from heaven above to “go home a different way.” History lovers, mystery lovers, and lovers of Scripture and the Holy Family won’t want to miss this book.
