The Emperor’s Vision and Other Christ Legends

Selma Lagerlöf

(formerly titled, Christ Legends and Other Stories)



This is one of my favorite collections of stories surrounding the life and reality of Christ. Selma Lagerlöf’s telling of these tales – ranging from the story of the surly shepherd of Bethlehem, to the war-hardened soldier at Herod’s feast, to St. Veronica’s act of grace toward the Emperor Tiberius – is profoundly beautiful and deep. These stories are timeless and will appeal to a wide range of children and adults – some stories are best told only to older children while some can become family treasures at a very early age. All of them will remain a cherished treasure in the hearts of those who hear them.
