9780863159817: Christ Legends

The stories of Jesus' birth and childhood are well known, but Selma Lagerlöf brings them truly to life in this wonderful collection of tales for children.

Her storytelling draws vividly on the colorful history and landscape of the Holy Land. She weaves in a cast of lively characters whose experiences and points of view are not usually represented: a war-hardened soldier at Herod's feast, a grumpy shepherd, Emperor Tiberius himself. Together they proclaim the human drama and divine mystery of the events of Christ's life.

Previously published as The Emperor's Vision.

About the Author:

Selma Ottilia Lovisa Lagerlöf (1858-1940) was born in Mårbacka, in the province of Värmland in southern Sweden. Lagerlöf's work is deeply rooted in Nordic legends and history. She rejected the dominating realistic movement and wrote her novels in a romantic and imaginative style about the peasant life and landscape of Northern Sweden. She wrote several books for children, the most popular of which is The Wonderful Adventures of Nils. In 1909, she became the first woman writer to win the Nobel Prize for Literature, and, in 1914, she was appointed a member of the Swedish Academy.

Review:

'Brings many familiar stories alive in an enchanting way.' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review '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.' -- Peter Heathfield, New View, Winter 2002/3
