      The story, first published as a book in , is rather flowery and wordy, with old-fashioned constructions such as “the silent imputation of parsimony.” The plot revolves around a young couple, Della and Jim, who live a Spartan life in their tiny flat. The Magi appear prominently in the book of Daniel, where Daniel himself is named as Rab-mag, the chief of the Magi (Daniel , ). Daniel says that Daniel, as chief of the Magi, was ruler of the entire province of Babylon. These Magi obviously were powerful men in the very powerful Babylonian and Persian empires.

    A Book of the Magi “A Book of the Magi: Lore, Prayers, and Spellcraft of the Three Holy Kings” Alexander Cummins. The Biblical Magi have long held an interest for those who have sought out arcane and obscure knowledge, the word ‘magic’ itself comes directly from their title. While they have been depicted and portrayed in a wide variety of likenesses and personas over the millennia.   They continue to bring the Magi closer little by little until they arrive on Epiphany, Jan. 6. Who places the Christ child in the crib is another way to build a family tradition. In Italian tradition, for example, the most senior member of the household gets that honor. In other families, the eldest child gets to place the baby in the crib.

    The story has been popular over the years because of its moral about gift-giving and the well-known twist at the end. 'The Gift of the Magi' is a sentimental, old-fashioned tale about love and sacrifice. The language is old-fashioned, as you would expect from a story written over a hundred years ago, so you may be wondering why anyone would bother reading it to a child or even a teenager. This book will change the way we read the New Testament. It holds surprises (and maybe a few shocks to the system) for both the liberal scholars who think the story of the three wise men is so much pious hokum, and for traditional Christians who think all the legends and tradition are completely true.
