Originally published in 1895, "The Story of the Other Wise Man" was intended as an addition to the story of the Magi recounted in the Bible. The story has been reprinted many times over its more than 100-year history, and has been adapted into a variety of plays, operas, and TV movies including the 1985 TV movie "The Fourth Wise Man," which starred Martin Sheen.

Autorenporträt
Henry van Dyke was an American religious writer, lecturer, and clergyman. Educated at the Theological Seminary at Princeton University, van Dyke returned to the school after his graduation as a Professor of English Literature and became an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 1913 he was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson, his former classmate, as the ambassador to the Netherlands and Luxembourg, a job that he maintained throughout the First World War. His most famous short stories include "The Story of the Other Wise Man" and "The First Christmas Tree", which, like many of his other works, centered around moral and religious themes. After a lifetime of public service and religious leadership, Henry van Dyke died in 1933 at the age of 80.
