From New York Times best-selling author Max Lucado comes a timeless message that will warm your heart.

Imagine a Victorian England village in the Cotswolds where very little out of the ordinary ever happens . . . except at Christmas time.

This year, Edward Haddington, a lowly candle maker, is visited by a mysterious angel. That angel silently imparts a precious gift—a gift that’s bungled and subsequently lost. The candle maker and his wife, Bea, struggle to find the gift.

And when they do, they have to make a difficult choice. Who among their community is most in need of a Christmas miracle?

Join inspirational author Max Lucado and experience anew the joy of Christmas.

THE CHRISTMAS CANDLE is a short novella, easily read in a short time. I read it in a few hours. It is a bit disjointed as in it doesn’t flow well. But the story does all tie together. At first I wondered how it would.

I enjoyed reading this story, it was sweet and touching. A miracle at Christmas. Who doesn’t hope for that? A minister who struggles to believe—and then when he is finally convinced to let the receiver share the blessing with the church, the surprises start happening.

A wonderful Christmas story. I want to see the DVD now. $16.99 hardcover. 208 pages. 4.5 stars.
