Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story

New York Times best-selling author, teacher, and Episcopal priest, Barbara Brown Taylor recently released her first children’s book, Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story!

Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story is a beautiful retelling of the Nativity story. The book offers readers new perspectives of the three wise men, King Herod, Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, and helps teach that sometimes the most valuable gifts are the most unexpected. Home by Another Way: A Christmas Story features breathtaking artwork by illustrator Melanie Cataldo and the book is ideal for children ages 6-10.

“Barbara Brown Taylor has a way with words,” said Kathleen Long Bostrom, award-winning children's book writer of What Is God Like? and Stories from the Bible. “She has long been known for the eloquence of her sermons and books for adults, her ability to delve into a biblical text and to carefully examine and uncover the deeper meaning, layer by layer. In Home by Another Way, Taylor brings her skills to the world of children's literature.”
