The legend of the Magi is one of the most potent episodes in the Christian tradition. This novel brings them to life, departing from the Bible story with the addition of the fourth king - Taor, the one who came too late to the nativity.

The Four Wise Men struck me as a true masterpiece.(Lewis Jones New Statesman)
A work of extraordinary clarity.(Jonathan Baumbach New York Times Book Review)
There is a real touch of magic in this novel.( The Atlantic)
This is a novel of high achievement. Tournier works to assert an apologia of Christianity and its underlying message of love, and he does so with finely paced arguing, well-balanced counterarguing and, most importantly, genuine intellectual energy... This may be more than a novel of high achievement, in fact; it may be the best work so far of a truly daring writer.( America)
Tournier is an ambitious and profound writer.( Washington Post) Book Description:
