These book cover an astonishing range of perspectives and styles, from truly schmaltzy romances that make me squirm to dry and pedantic tomes that are perhaps best as a cure for insomnia. You can find everything from Tantric love manuals to novels envisioning Magdalene as a Druid priestess. Here is a list of my top ten favorites, all thoughtful and scholarly, well researched and at least competently written.

These men were astronomers called Magi, and there were very likely many more than three of them.
In those days, three wealthy men would have been easy prey for bandits. People traveled in caravans for safety. These men, however many there were, arrived in Bethlehem when the child was perhaps around 15 months old.
