A wonderful book to re-issue!
on 11 January 2008
I'm so pleased that this book of Ms. Loft's has been reissued - to date there have only been somewhat-fusty elderly hardback copies available!
To anyone interested in the birth of Christ story - out of casual interest, or faith - this will be a fascinating "read".
Not only are the major characters of Mary and Joseph covered, in their journey to Bethlehem, but also the individual stories of the Wisemen before they met together, and completed their joint mission. Among these major threads of the story, are many of the incidental characters we are familiar with - all brought magically to life, and playing their parts, thanks to the skill and imagination of Ms. Lofts.
This book is a work of fiction - based on the Bible story familiar to us, and it's up to each reader to make of it what they will, but it's an enjoyable living story in itself, and for the price of a paperback, a worthwhile purchase.
