Before Christianity and modern science, mankind could only explain many situations and events with magic. Those who had answers were thought to have “the gift from God” (or “Magi”) and were held in high regard. They were appointed as well-respected counselors and advisors to kings and rulers, giving them insight to make sense of the otherwise unexplainable events happening in the world around them.
For thousands of years, paramount decisions were based on the guidance and wisdom that the Magi provided.
It was the Magi from the east who understood the prophecy about Jesus Christ and followed the star to its resting place in Bethlehem. “Where is he who has been born king of the Jews? For we have seen his star in the East, and have come to worship him” (Matt. 2:2). When the Magi found Jesus, what was once mysterious was revealed through this encounter, for He became Wonder Counselor for all mankind.
In today’s modern world, with our better understanding of Faith, is there still a place for a magician? The answer is an unequivocal yes! Catholic magician David Russell uses anecdotes from his magic shows to unfold Catholic spirituality for the reader.
As the wise men discovered the newborn King, you too can follow a unique path of study through Magi Theology and be led to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.
Magi Theology carries an Imprimatur and Nihil Obstat.
