Book Review
Quest for Light
Adventure of the Magi
by Byron Anderson

Quest for Light brings the Magi to life as we join in their harrowing adventure across Persia in search of the one, true God. Appealing to the Magi through His star, God called upon these warrior priests to be among the first people to learn of the Messiah's birth. Our journey takes us along The Silk road, the first century's informational superhighway, where we meet the soldiers, merchants and other travelers whose lives intersect with the Magi and their companions. By sharing the Magi's experience we come to understand why the deserted their families and risked their lives to undertake a long journey in search of a foreign king. Just as we face many obstacles today in coming to know God, we will also learn how the Magi's faith and determination enabled them to overcome fierce storms, bandit attacks, and encounters with evil spirits. Faithful followers of Zoroaster, the Magi undergo intense soul searching and spiritual turmoil when God intervenes in their lives. 

Based on Scripture and historical accounts of the era, Quest for Light provides a fresh and unique perspective on the events and circumstances surrounding Christ's birth. The significance of God's star and the role of the Magi are highlighted in the Christmas miracle of God coming to live among men as baby born to a virgin.

Adventures of the Magi is an amazing book. It gives you a history lesson of the Magi who went to visit a young Jesus but it doesn't do it in a traditional way. It actually tells the stories of the Magi and their journey in a way that fun to read. I had a hard time putting this book down. Because of the hardships that the Magi went through can be inspirational.
