The Christmas Candle by Max Lucado

The Christmas CandleThe Christmas Candle by Max Lucado

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Set in the 1800's in England, a candle maker and his wife carry on the centuries old tradition of the Christmas Candle. Supposedly every 25 years an angel comes and touches one of the Haddington family  candles and when someone prays over it they get a Christmas miracle.
When a new pastor comes to the small village he runs headlong into some members of his parish when he insists God does not really do miracles anymore and that the Christmas Candle is a mere superstition.
When the Christmas Candle get mixed up with about 30 other candles the Haddingtons don't know what to do. With so many people needing miracles this year they have a hard choice to make.
I really enjoyed this little Christmas story. It was a short story more than a book really at only 190 pages but I rather enjoy a short, heartwarming Christmas story.
So turn on your Christmas CD, heat some hot cider and curl up by the fire with The Christmas Candle.
