Synopsis

The Emperor's Vision And Other Christ Legends by Selma Lagerlof

Selma Lagerlof's classic style of storytelling draws vividly on the colourful history and landscape of the Holy Land, from the time of Jesus to the Crusades. From the surly shepherd of Bethlehem to the war-hardened soldier at Herod's feast; from the unhappy suppliants in the Temple to the cruel Emperor Tiberius, abandoned by all except his old nurse -- the human drama and divine mystery of the events of Christ's life are woven together in visionary tales. For ordinary men and women caught up in these events, lives and destinies are changed forever. Formerly published as Christ Legends and Other Stories.

Reviews

'Brings many familiar stories alive in an enchanting way.'

'The reappearance of these wonderful stories will delight all who enjoy telling or reading stories at Christmastide. As a teacher, when I told my classes of primary school children the stories In Nazareth and In The Temple they proved very popular and inspired excellent artwork! These stories are a wonderful antidote to the materialism and sentimentality which so often mar the celebration of Christmas.'
