Gold, Common Sense, and Myrrh by Dwayne Buhler is a collection of ten short stories that take place on Christmas Eve. Readers will travel around the world, visiting a poor family in Rio de Janeiro, and witness the kidnapping of students in an international school in Laos. The stories span history, going to a missionary family in the South Pacific in the 18th Century and to the Canadian Prairies during World War II. Readers end their journey in Bethlehem with the tale of a woodcutter and his son as they accompany the shepherds to the manger. Gold, Common Sense, and Myrrh reveals the wonder of the Christmas story, seen through the eyes of people from different nations and cultures.
