Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Chicken Soup for the Christian Family Soul is the latest installment in the wildly popular "Chicken Soup" series. Each story in the collection is heartwarming; storytellers Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen, Jeffrey Hedquist, Dawn McKay, and Jackie Leigh manage to convey sweetness without being saccharine. Possibly the most touching tale concerns a Jewish woman and her husband who had been separated in World War II. Each was taken to the concentration camps believing that the other had escaped and was safe; each came out of the camps believing that the other had died. Through chance, each spotted a lace tablecloth that the woman had tatted and embroidered with her initials hanging in a church. This audiotape reminds believers of all faiths that kindness matters and that miracles and synchronicities occur daily. Libraries with large Christian, self-help, and inspiration collections will want this audiobook. Pam Kingsbury, Alabama Humanities Fdn., Florence Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

A Perfect Mistake

Grandpa Nybakken loved life — especially when he could play a trick on somebody. At those time, his large Norwegian frame shook with laughter while he feigned innocent surprise, exclaiming, ôOh, forevermore!ö But on a cold Saturday in downtown Chicago, Grandpa felt that God played a trick on him, and Grandpa wasnÆt laughing.

MotherÆs father worked as a carpenter. On this particular day, he was building some crates for the clothes his church was sending to an orphanage in China. On his way home, he reached into his shirt pocket to find his glasses, but they were gone. He remembered putting them there that morning, so he drove back to the church. His search proved fruitless.

When he mentally replayed his earlier actions, he realized what happened. The glasses had slipped out of his pocket unnoticed and fallen into one of the crates, which he had nailed shut. His brand new glasses were heading for China!

The Great Depression was at its height, and Grandpa had six children. He had spent twenty dollars for those glasses that very morning.

ôItÆs not fair,ö he told God as he drove home in frustration. ôIÆve been very faithful in giving of my time and money to your work, and now this.ö

Several months later, the director of the orphanage was on furlough in the United States. He wanted to visit all the churches that supported him in China, so he came to speak on Sunday night at my grandfatherÆs small church in Chicago. Grandpa and his family sat in their customary seats among the sparse congregation.

ôBut most of all,ö he said, ôI must thank you for the glasses you sent last year. You see, the Communists had just swept through the orphanage, destroying everything, including my glasses. I was desperate.ö

ôEven if I had the money, there was simply no way of replacing those glasses. Along with not being able to see well, I experienced headaches every day, so my coworkers and I were much in prayer about this. Then your crates arrived. When my staffed removed the covers, they found a pair of glasses lying on top.ö

The missionary paused long enough to let his words sink in. Then, still gripped with the wonder of it all, he continued: ôFolks, when I tried on the glasses, it was as thought they had been custom-made just for me! I want to thank you for being a part of that!ö

The people listened, happy for the miraculous glasses. But the missionary surely must have confused their church with another, they thought. There were no glasses on their list of items to be sent overseas.

But sitting quietly in the back, with tears streaming down his face, an ordinary carpenter realized the Master Carpenter had used him in an extraordinary way.

    What An Inspiration!

    This was one of the most inspiring books I have ever read. It made me laugh, it made me cry and it even surprised me on how good God can be. It is excellent for fellow believers as well as any one person who can use some inspiration.
