Kings, wise men, or magi? They came from the East and brought gifts to the Son of Man. Some called them magi, while others named them wise kings who had seen a star. But who where they, really? Were they rulers, astronomers, philosophers, or something else? We Three Kings is an adventure, a spiritual journey of discovery, and an extended prayer. It asks simply: What would you give up in order to follow a star, a dream-Jesus? When would the burden be too much or the trail too narrow? Tested, beaten, and tempted, the three kings stuck to their faith, and it brought them to God. The three kings gave away everything to follow a star: their kingdoms, money, power, and even their own identities. Did they make the ultimate sacrifice?

Flexible and easy to teach, The Bells of Glocken is approximately 20 minutes long and is an inspired choice for children's choirs, Christian schools or Sunday schools-also great as a multi-generation program for the entire congregation! With very simple narration and dialog, it features speaking and non-speaking roles for 7-10 people, though directors are encouraged to add dialog and characters as necessary. "Glocken" is the German word for "bells." Four bell sounds represent the seasonal themes of hope, peace, love and joy. This pattern may be played by handbells, choir chimes, organ chimes or pitched percussion instruments, though keyboard alone is sufficient. The Director's Score includes fully supportive keyboard accompaniment, costuming, prop and staging suggestions, dialog, vocals and a reprintable audience/congregation program. The Singer's Edition features vocals, narration and dialog. Fully orchestrated recordings are available separately.

Like that Biblical, astronomical star of Bethlehem, The Christmas Carol Reader guides readers on their quest for information about Christmas songs. Studwell gathers a composite picture of the world's most important and famous carols and includes an ample selection of lesser-known Christmas songs. All of the carols are presented in their historical and cultural contexts which adds to readers’understanding and appreciation of the songs. As the only book that covers this elusive topic, The Christmas Carol Reader informs and entertains readers on over 200 songs of all types (sacred and secular), of all periods (Middle Ages through the 20th century), and from a number of countries and cultures. Because many of the songs in The Christmas Carol Reader fit into more than one distinct category, Studwell wisely divides the songs into two major groups--those that reflect Christmas as a Holy Day and those that celebrate Christmas as a Holiday. Here is just a sample of the breadth of coverage of songs: Sacred: From Heaven Above to Earth I Come; O Come, O Come Emmanuel; Angels From the Realms of Glory; As With Gladness Men of Old; O Holy Night (Cantique de Noël); Thou Didst Leave Thy Throne Secular: Happy Holiday; A Holly Jolly Christmas; God Rest You Merry, Gentlemen; Silver Bells; Here Comes Santa Claus; I'll Be Home for Christmas Medieval: Puer Natus in Bethlehem (A Boy Is Born in Bethlehem); Coventry Carol; I Sing of a Maiden; La marche des rois (The March of the Kings); In Dulci Jubilo 1500--1700's: Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella; I Saw Three Ships; Carol of the Bagpipers 1800's: Adeste Fideles (O Come All Ye Faithful); O Little Town of Bethlehem; What Child Is This?; It Came Upon a Midnight Clear; Stille Nacht, Heiliege Nacht (Silent Night) Spirituals: Go Tell It on the Mountain; I Wonder as I Wander; Mary Had a Baby; Rise Up, Shepherd, and Follow Little Known: O Bethlehem!; The Sleep of the Infant Jesus; Song of the Nuns of Chester Countries and Cultures: O Tannenbaum; Lulajze Jezuniu (Polish Lullaby); Fum, Fum, Fum; Carol of the Bells; Patapan; El rorro (The Babe) As readers learn about the history and nature of the Christmas carol in general and the specific history of individual religious and secular carols, they will learn some history and nature of the holiday season which can bring more enjoyment into their celebrations for years to come. On long winter nights, The Christmas Carol Reader can be read continuously as a series of fact-based commentaries on Christmas music. For shorter periods in between holiday activities, readers can peruse one of the topical sections or select, with the aid of the title index, an individual essay of interest. As a library reference, this book can provide facts for research on Christmas songs or just provide an entertaining education for curious library patrons.

"For six hundred years we have been living and dying because of our faith in someone that none of us has seen. Now that Christ is living on this earth, it is madness to not go and seek him." When the signs of the Savior's birth appear in ancient America, the prophet Nephi witnesses another miracle—the Liahona starts working again. Now he must begin a quest that will take him far across the ocean to find the King of kings. Join Nephi, Timothy, and Cephus on a journey that ultimately changes their lives—and the course of history—as they become the legendary Three Wise Men. Masterfully written and wonderfully entertaining, this book is bound to become a family favorite for years to come.
