Review: The Christmas Candle by:Max Lucado

The Christmas Candle
About the Book:
 Journey back to a simpler time, to a small English village where nothing out of the ordinary ever happens. Except at Christmastime.

When a mysterious angel suddenly appears in a lowly candlemaker's shop, the holy and the human collide in a way that only God could imagine.

Glowing bright with a timeless message, "The Christmas Candle" will warm your heart with a surprising reminder of God's bountiful love.


My Review:
 With Christmas in the far off distance, its nice to settle down with a nice, big mug of hot chocolate by a roaring fire with a book full of inspiration that just gives you a good feeling all over. It makes you just wish it was Christmas was here already.

 The Christmas Candle does just that. It is a heart warming story of a multi-generational family chosen to good to their neighbors through a visit by an angel that touched a candle that when given away preformed miracles in the lives of the towns people.

 Edward Haddington owns the towns local candle shop and he always makes the Christmas candles for the church. One night after a late night of working he is visited by a angel that has a light so bright that it illuminates the room. He watches dumbfounded and amazed as this angel touches one of the candles he has made. When he gives that particular candle to someone at his church, he as well as the entire town is captivated by the life that was transformed as a result of this gift.
