Tells the story of a strong man named Offero who searches in vain to find the greatest ruler in all the world so he can serve him as his bearer, but when he helps a mysterious child cross a river, the child's true identity is revealed and Offero becomes Saint Christopher, the patron saint of travelers.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The legend of Saint Christopher, first written in the thirteenth century, tells the story of a strong man named Offero, who wants to find the greatest ruler in all the world and to serve him as his bearer. Offeros search is in vain until a mysterious child at a riverside asks Offero to carry him over the river. Only after Offero has carried the child over the river does he discover the childs true identity. Then Offeros name is changed to Christopher. Author Margaret Hodges retells with power and simplicity this unforgettable tale of the man who became known as the patron saint of travelers. And illustrator Richard Jesse Watson has created hypnopompic paintings that dramatically capture Offeros journey and the brilliance of his discovery of the One he sought.
