What I love most about any of Max Lucado's books, is that they follow you wherever you go. The message you are bound to find will undoubtedly find its way into your heart and soul. What I have discovered is the perfect gift for those that love a great book just in time for Christmas. One that you can incorporate into your family devotions as well as a late night reading for your family next to a warm fire on a snowy night. The best part is that this is finding its way into being made into a movie so that it can enjoyed in a multitude of ways for Christmas. In The Christmas Candle set in the late 1600's in Cotswald, England, we meet when the story originated with a candle maker and his wife. They are awakened in the middle of the night by a heavenly angel that appears and touches just one candle before disappearing, ensuring that the candle maker knows just which one was touched. The candle is then given to a woman who is desperate for food. She has no means to find money to help her children out and the candle maker instructs her to light the candle and pray to God for help. The next day at church service in St. Mark's the widow informs the church of the Christmas miracle that happened when she did just what the candle maker told her to do. She was given a farm by a wealthy uncle she didn't know so she can live in it and provide for her children without payment. Now the legend continues in the small town that whenever the church service begins each 25 years, a Christmas miracle occurs by whomever the candle is given by the candle maker's family. This year however much has changed. Will the miracle of the Christmas candle still work in the hearts of the people living in the town of Gladstone? You'll have to pick this one up and find out. I received The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado compliments of Thomas Nelson Publishers for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions expressed here are strictly my own. This is such a wonderful and heartwarming story that I can see it becoming a Christmas tradition much like the reading of The Christmas Story or the Night Before Christmas. It definitely opens up the conversation around what happens in the book and compels us to look deep inside our hearts to see how wonderful the birth of Jesus Christ was so many years ago and how even today, that miracle still works the lives and hearts of those that believe in Him. Hands down a perfect 5 out of 5 stars! What a life-changing book this would make as a gift for someone this Christmas!

This is definetly a case of the book being better than the movie. I was entranced by the book and wondering how it would all tie together til the end. I was in tears; reminded of how God weaves incidents together for His glory. The movie was changed quite a bit. Read the book insted.

Max Lucado is an author that never disappoints. You never have to wonder if his book is going to be good or not, they all are. This little fiction novel took me 1 hour to read from start to finish. It is such a cute Christmas tale and it took me into a different world. The story has several families who are hoping for a Christmas miracle. One particular family has held the tradition of having the candle, which has been passed down year after year. Every twenty five years, the angel visits and blesses someone's family. The whole towns get involved and knows of this tradition. Several families in the community are needing the miracle of The Christmas Candle, but only one family can receive the miracle. Many families are asking the candle maker and his wife for the special Christmas candle, so they are able to receive the blessing. The book ends in a very expecting way, but ties the miracle of the Christmas Candle and each family experiences a miracle. This book is such a great story and will become a traditional December read! Thanks Booksneeze for a great book!

A nice, quick read for the holidays. About 75 pages. Well written and edited. Starts in the 1600's and ends in the 1800's. A story of faith, miracles, friendship and community. Something to read when you want to lift your spirits.

Please don't tell me something is a "book" or a "novel" when it is less than 100 pages. It is a "short story." I just want to know what I'm getting. I chose this book from my library thinking I was settling down with a nice Christmas book and my first thought upon opening it was, "This isn't a book! It's a short story!"

A very nice short read that will renew your faith in the miracle of the human spirit. The outcome is somewhat expected but the entire book keep my interest. What a nice read during the holiday season.
