A captivating blend of personal biography and public drama, The Wise Men introduces the original best and brightest, leaders whose outsized personalities and actions brought order to postwar chaos: Averell Harriman, the freewheeling diplomat and Roosevelt's special envoy to Churchill and Stalin; Dean Acheson, the secretary of state who was more responsible for the Truman Doctrine than Truman and for the Marshall Plan than General Marshall; George Kennan, self-cast outsider and intellectual darling of the Washington elite; Robert Lovett, assistant secretary of war, undersecretary of state, and secretary of defense throughout the formative years of the Cold War; John McCloy, one of the nation's most influential private citizens; and Charles Bohlen, adroit diplomat and ambassador to the Soviet Union.

The story of the Wise Men in Matthew’s Gospel has always been an enigma. The only three important terms in that tale—“wise men,” “star,” and “east”—are all lost in obscurity, rendering it useless as a record. For this reason, many scholars consider it just another miracle story of the kind that surrounded other ancient heroes. But what if a piece of information was missing whose recovery would make it as clear today as it was to the original readers? In The Wise Men and the Star, Dr. Miller explains how he uncovered that missing piece, which then revealed who the Wise Men were, the location of the East when they arrived in Bethlehem, and what was the star they saw.

The story is presented through the eye of an immigrant returning home for a fortnight to a little coastal Italian town from the Americas, with the intent of taking a break from customary life and reorganising his thoughts around lifelong problems with his wife. There old memories emerge and blend with the current life of the town. During his stay, the visitor learns from a group of wise old men that a friend of his youth has died of Aids after conducting a dissipated life. The old men also represent the heart of the little village with their provincial wisdom.

It was a journey that would change everything.I am a Magi, as was my father. My home is the magnificent world of the palace. I am privileged to do what I love: lose myself in scrolls, study, and speculation. But there are moments, sometimes just seconds, when I can no longer ignore the heaviness of my soul. I am weary of the politics, lies, and intrigue of palace life.My dear friend and fellow Magi Gaspar is certain he has witnessed the rising of a new star. It seems impossible, but he showed me the calculations. If this is true, it is sacred. The other Wise Men have announced they will travel to explore the stars meaning.I too will go on this journey, maybe more to escape than to explore. Perhaps I will find meaning along the way. Perhaps what we find will be remembered for generations. Perhaps it will be the dawning of a new era . . . For all Wise Men know a new star marks a new beginning.

How the Wise Men Got to Chelm is the first in-depth study of Chelm literature and its relationship to its literary precursors. When God created the world, so it is said, he sent out an angel with a bag of foolish souls with instructions to distribute them equally all over the world—one fool per town. But the angel’s bag broke and all the souls spilled out onto the same spot. They built a settlement where they landed: the town is known as Chelm. The collected tales of these fools, or “wise men,” of Chelm constitute the best-known folktale tradition of the Jews of eastern Europe. This tradition includes a sprawling repertoire of stories about the alleged intellectual limitations of the members of this old and important Jewish community. Chelm did not make its debut in the role of the foolish shtetl par excellence until late in the nineteenth century. Since then, however, the town has led a double life—as a real city in eastern Poland and as an imaginary place onto which questions of Jewish identity, community, and history have been projected. By placing literary Chelm and its “foolish” antecedents in a broader historical context, it shows how they have functioned for over three hundred years as models of society, somewhere between utopia and dystopia. These imaginary foolish towns have enabled writers both to entertain and highlight a variety of societal problems, a function that literary Chelm continues to fulfill in Jewish literature to this day.

Cinjah is a homeless waif, with no memory of mother or father, or knowledge if he were born slave or freeman, is a servant in the home of Rigel. Lives are forever changed when the extraordinary Light in the heavens is confirmed as His Sign. Rigel, The Most Honored Wise One, and his father, The Truth Seeker, face enormous challenges as they begin preparations for their religious pilgrimage: they must evade political intrigue and deal with treachery and murder. Young Cinjah’s insatiable curiosity, quick wit and sharp tongue interject humor into the otherwise solemn events. The Magi are bound to the Nativity for all time, yet their story is much more than the scant words allotted in the Biblical account. Tradition portrays the Magi as Kings, but in reality these men were trustees of the great secrets and knowledge of their world and held positions as Justices, Ambassadors, Governors, and Priests. Yes, they also were Astrologers, studying the heavens. CINJAH AND THE WISE MEN: THE JOURNEY is a story suitable for the entire family and offers a remarkable perspective of our mysterious and indefinable Wise Men. The majestic arrival of the Magi’s cortege, accompanied by Prince Farrah and his Royal Guard, is indeed cause for King Herod to tremble and all of Jerusalem with him. The historic journey of the Wise Men acknowledges the human condition, the promise, and the sustaining faith that catapulted them into history.
