Favorite Lucado Christams stories in one volume
Max Lucado's writing style always puts you right into the emotions of the story, no hefty or dry theological language but instead language that captures both the human and the divine at the same time. This book would make a wonderful introduction to someone who has never read Max Lucado or as that little gift for someone who have may time on their hands before the holidays, perhaps an elderly relative. Most (maybe all) of the stories have been published in other Lucado books, but are brought together in this volume. Capturing both the magical mystery and the love often portrayed in Christmas tales, the legend of The Christmas Candle is one of the longer stories. Although the story moved slowly at first, the ending is worth it. Short, but a powerful comparison, North Pole or Manger clearly shows which we really need. Perhaps the most powerful story for me was Angel's Story, Lucaodo's visualization of Satan's vicious attempt to prevent the birth of the Savior. I will view the role of the angels at Christ's birth in a new light this year.
I received an advanced copy of this book in eformat for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
